Ruskin Park Primary School

Ruskin Park Primary School is situated two kilometres east of central Croydon in a well-established leafy residential area. The school has developed and maintained an excellent reputation in the community and has a proud history of providing high quality education to the students, who come from differing backgrounds and have a range of educational needs and abilities.

Our school comprises 16 classrooms, an art room, library, Japanese centre, music room and a gymnasium.  Our specifically designed classrooms and administration block ‘rose from the ashes’ of the fire in 1976.  The spacious treed grounds  provide a stimulating environment in which students can learn.
