Grade 6 Canberra Camp

Grade 6 Canberra Camp

Last week our Grade 6’s embarked on their week long expedition to Canberra.  We thank all students for their immaculate behaviour which was regularly commented on by the public. We also thank Mr Coffin, Miss Marshall, Mrs Beach and Mr Moore for readily giving up their time to accompany the students.  Here are a few words from the students themselves:

On Monday the 25th of March we went to Canberra for Grade Six Camp. In the morning  we were a bit nervous about being away from home, but our fears passed pretty quickly as we were on the road to one of the most memorable trips of our lives. The highlights were Parliament House, Questacon, A.I.S, the Royal Australian Mint, the Australian War Memorial, Telstra Tower and the High Court.

One of the reasons we enjoyed Parliament House is because we got to see the Senate and House of Representatives rooms which we’ve been learning about in our Democracy unit. At the end of our time in Parliament House, we got to do a mini role play about turning a bill into an act of law in House of Representatives.

We had the best time in Canberra and learned so much. We made many memories and will never forget this trip!

Congratulations Grade 6’s. You did us proud!




Cross Country

Cross Country

The Ruskin Park sporting spirit was on show again with our Grade 3-6 students competing in our annual Cross Country event. While there were some wonderful athletic performances on quite a warm day, the sportsmanship of the competitors was just as high.

Our top 10 students in each gender and age group will go through to the next level on Monday May 20th.

Congratulations and good luck to those competing at the next level.
