From the Principal

Welcome to William Ruthven Primary School.

Our vision is to develop literate, numerate and curious learners who are empowered and ready for each stage of their learning. We seek to instil personal and collective responsibility via our school values of respect, compassion and confidence.

We have high expectations for ourselves and our students. Through a safe and orderly environment, we are committed to developing happy and confident learners who aspire to do their best. English (reading and writing) and mathematics are at the core of our school’s teaching and learning program. This program is enhanced through our specialist subjects - science, visual arts, performing arts, Italian, physical education and library. Our approaches to teaching and learning enable us to tailor programs to how your child learns best.

We see education as a joint partnership between home and the school. By working together, we can give your child the best opportunity to flourish academically, physically, socially and emotionally. We welcome and encourage you to ask about your child's progress, and we can provide suggestions about how you can help your child's learning in the home.

Our school has an exciting future and I invite your child and family to be part of it.

Please contact me on 9460 1668 to discuss enrolling at William Ruthven Primary School.
