Welcome To Rochester and Rutherford Hall.
Semester One 2014 is almost complete. We wish all of our students the very best for their exams and the following break from study. It has been a busy first semester with lots of friendships formed, we trust you all have a safe and relaxing break – take care and we’ll see you all back here start of semester two.
If you coming to visit us during the open days, we are looking forward to showing you around our place. We will be showing tours around R&R on July 10th and 11th. Come to the Ashby building either from Ilam Road or from our carpark – look out for the large flags/banners.
