We are currently running school tours for Foundation 2022. There has been much interest in our school already which is great as we are proud of our school.
Should you be member of our local area interested in enrolling your child and looking to tour, please contact the office on 9723 3886 so one can be organised.
Should you be a current member of our school community and have a sibling to enrol for 2022 can you please drop by the office to collect an enrolment form as soon as possible.
We look forward to meeting you all and showcasing all that Ruskin has to offer.
It was with great excitement that we were able to take advantage of the glorious weather on Friday and hold our first outdoor assembly welcoming our parents onsite. The sun was shining, the excitement was palpable and our youngest school members; the Foundation students joined us for the first time. It was also their first awards assembly where across the school, class and Specialist awards were given out for attitude and effort while using a Growth Mindset to improve.
We are hoping that we can continue with this format; while the warm weather continues anyway. Please monitor on Compass.
Thank you to our community members for coming to the assembly- it was great to have you with us.
It was excitement plus at our annual Teddy Bear’s Picnic recently. Our Year 6 and Foundation Buddies enjoyed various picnic games such as egg and spoon races, tunnel ball, parachute, vortex and sack races. We were thrilled with the level of participation, respect and sportsmanship demonstrated throughout the day. After all of the activities the students enjoyed a picnic and some relaxation time with their buddy.
One of the exciting programs that our Foundation students participate in once they have had time to settle in is PMP. PMP is a gross motor skill program that supports students to improve their balance, hand- eye co-ordination and teamwork skills. We are lucky as not only does our Phys Ed teacher Mr McDonald run the program with the support of our Foundation teachers but our Foundation parents have the opportunity, and put their hands up to support. A great time is had by all.
While we are all aware that Remote Learning hasn’t been the easiest time for anyone, we can’t help but be extremely proud of our school community. Over the journey, our parents, students and teachers have all worked together to make the absolute best of the situation and support each other as much as possible. This has continued upon the return of our junior students with staggered starts and finishes. Our parents have all been incredibly supportive and we have watched our youngest members grow before our eyes as they have transitioned to walking themselves into school with courage and for the most part, smiles on their faces as they have said goodbye to their parents and walked themselves to their building. We have seen older siblings giving their younger siblings hugs good bye and even friends give hugs as they have supported their friends on the way in.
We are so incredibly proud of you all!
