Principal's welcome

It is a pleasure to welcome you to the William Ruthven Primary School website. Please explore the information on this site as a brief introduction to our school.

At William Ruthven Primary School, we place our students at the centre of all that we do. We recognise the impact that high quality learning can have on living a healthy and happy life, and we maintain an unwavering focus on learning and teaching. We also value the importance of student wellbeing. We provide opportunities for students to develop their social and emotional learning, to help them become confident and caring individuals.


We are committed to the development of whole-school effective teaching and learning practices to best support the children in our care. Our staff undertake continuous and ongoing professional development. Just as our students learn, so too do our staff. Staff work and plan collaboratively in teams, and they are continually improving their teaching and learning techniques through quality professional development, peer coaching and mentoring programs.


Visitors to our school are always impressed with the calm and orderly environment in which our students learn. Across the school, we have established routines and consistency in learner and teacher protocols that ensure we have an environment where all students can reach their potential. 

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. Please consider visiting us in person so that you can experience, firsthand, the feeling of daily life at our school. Visitors are always welcome. Please contact the office on 9460 1668 to organise an individual tour.
