Mosman Evening College was established in 1949 when the NSW state government, under the Shared Use of School Premises Agreement, made classrooms and halls in NSW schools available in the evenings for local community groups to conduct courses.
On opening night, 293 students submitted their application for enrolment with classes in Dressmaking, Music Appreciation, Dramatic Art, Weaving, Cooking, and Woodwork & Millinery. Further classes were contemplated in physical education for females and glove making.
Today we offer over 300 courses per term for students of all ages both day and night for members of the Mosman Community as well as further afield. Most of our classes continue to be held at Mosman High School, however an increase in the number and variety of courses on offer has lead to other local venues being used.
In 2002 the college became known as Mosman Community College with the mission of providing lifelong learning opportunities in the local area.
