The Marist Rosalie Old Boys’ Association are currently reviewing which organisations we should support into the future.
When the school was operational before closing in 2008, the Old Boys sponsored a number of Bursaries mainly for students at the Rosalie College. Since closure of the college those bursaries are no longer valid.
For the past three years our members have generously donated to a Rosalie Bursary established by Marist College, Ashgrove. These funds are channelled through the “Strength in Numbers” program. Details can be found on our website.
The details of the announcement of this Bursary can be read in a letter written by the then Headmaster, Mr. Peter McLoughlin by opening the Bursaries TAB. As you are aware we do not charge a membership fee for our Association and at this point in time we have no intention to introduce an annual fee. We rely on the generosity of our members and in the true “Rosa Spirit” many of our current members have been extremely forthcoming.
The funds we have raised to date have been from donations and selling ties and Jerseys. The majority of our expenditure has been spent on building this website, sponsoring Rosalie Jerseys so that the Ashgrove 1st. XV can play in Rosalie colours, establishment fees and general expenses.
If possible, we would ask members to contribute the cost of a cup of coffee on a regular basis to our general fund. This would help us enormously.
We will be advising you in the very near future, organisations we feel would benefit from the help we could provide, that some so desperately need.
