‘Through the generous support of donors we can continue to pursue excellence and uphold our tradition of delivering high quality programmes to our students as well as providing 21st Century learning areas.’
Director of Community Relations
At Ruyton we have a wonderful history of academic excellence, pastoral care and personalised learning. The size of Ruyton makes it possible for each girl to be acknowledged and for her development as an individual to be supported. The Ruyton Foundation believes that our girls’ opportunities should not be constrained by inadequate facilities, traditional learning avenues or inaccessibility.
Founded in 1988, the Ruyton Foundation is the principal organisation through which financial support of Ruyton Girls’ School is directed. The Foundation provides financial resources to give the School three core capabilities:
• Quality. Ruyton provides excellent and innovative dimensions to our girls’ education. Funds given by the Foundation allow the School to run additional programmes of educational excellence that enhance the curriculum.
• Viability. The provision of new buildings and upgraded facilities is essential to ensure that our teachers and girls have access to engaging learning environments.
• Accessibility. The provision of scholarships is a critical element of our School community. We wish to assist those who are otherwise unable to attend Ruyton or who have gifts that we can develop and share with others. In 2008 the Parents of Ruyton (POR) established the Ruyton Community Scholarship which enables girls from disadvantaged backgrounds to attend Ruyton. Donations for this Scholarship should be directed to the Foundation.
The Foundation supports the School in the successful implementation of our Strategic Directions. The Ruyton Board has developed the Master Plan for campus development over the next ten years.
