The amalgamation of Rose Bay and Kincoppal to create Kincoppal - Rose Bay was a time consuming process. It was agreed that the name Kincoppal would continue to be used but it would combine on the site of Rose Bay.
Many people were aware of the challenges, but only a few people realised just how much work would have to be put into the amalgamation. Sister Nell Hogan, first Provincial Administrator and principal, played a major role in the amalgamation of the two schools. She always provided vision and direction for those around her and the joining of the schools couldn’t have been done without her. After Sister Nell Hogan died, Sister Anne McGrath took over her job. She continued with the work with determination.
