    With heartfelt thanks to a century of Sisters

    Published on 15/01/2013

    GOOD SHEPHERD 100YRS SYDNEY LOGO CMYK HIRESSince the first Good Shepherd Sisters came to New South Wales in April 1913, they have worked tirelessly to address the social exclusion of women, young people and their families.

    Over the century since, the Sisters have provided ministries to meet the immediate and long term needs of the disadvantaged, including initiatives in education, residential services, counselling, in-court support and financial assistance.

    “Current Good Shepherd activities in NSW are worthy successors of the tradition established by those first Sisters so long ago,” Ms Lyn Harrison (CEO of Rosemount Good Shepherd) said.  “We owe a great deal to those audacious women who were not prepared to hear ‘It can’t be done’.”

    “Through 2013, we will will pay tribute to the founding Sisters along with the communities, organisations and individuals who are each important parts of the contemporary Good Shepherd Network not just in Sydney and New South Wales, but across Australia and around the world.”

    Getting in on the act

    Published on 30/11/2012

    When we work and when we celebrate, there is room for all at Rosemount, so the occasion of our 30th anniversary was specially marked by the performances of young people who have accessed Rosemount Services.

    From Johnny as MC to Yarrie, and Madi who performed poetry and dance to Kristi who spoke of her experiences at Rosemount, the courage and resilience of youth was truly celebrated.

    Yari , now 18, performed two of her own creative pieces, Being a Woman and Mama Africa.  She shared the encouragement she received from her Counsellor, Amanda, when she showed her first poem to her: “Since that day, Rosemount has given me confidence in life, I’m motivated to do more things in my acting, my writing, my dancing and my rapping as well.”

    Community forum held on forced marriage

    Published on 28/09/2012

    Lyn Harrison, Chief Executive Officer of Rosemount Good Shepherd speaking at the community forum on forced and servile marriage.

    As identified in the evidence review conducted for the Hidden Exploitation report, there is very little documented about the experiences in Australia of forced and servile marriage.

    As a result, our inaugural community forum on Friday, 28 September 2012 was in many ways a first look at the incidence of these particular human rights issues in Australia.

    In addition to Anti-Slavery Australia and Good Shepherd team members, 39 people participated representing 24 different organisations.

    Questions? Email reception@rosemountgs.org.au to contact our project team.
