Principal's Message

Welcome to William Ruthven Primary School. My staff and I are committed to developing your child into a happy, curious and confident learn who aspires to do their best.

Our school focuses on:

  • building students' literacy skill so they are competent and confident users of the written and spoken word
  • building students' numeracy skills so they are competent and confident with figures and numbers
  • creating an orderly and structured environment to enable learning to take place
  • all students and staff having high expectations of themselves and each other
  • a culture of sharing and self-responsibility.

Our teaching methods enable us to tailor programs to how your child learns best. This makes learning an engaging, relevant, challenging but achievable experience for students at William Ruthven Primary School.

We see educating children as a joint partnership between home and the school. Working together gives 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 helpful suggestions as to how you can help your child's learning at 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.

Kind regards

Allan Waterson
