There is a series of groups whose work underpins many of the opportunities available to our School community.
Second Hand Uniform Sale
There are a number of second hand uniform sales in the year, generally one prior to the year beginning, then in Term 3 and one in Term 4, which provide an opportunity to sell any unwanted uniforms as well as to purchase second hand uniforms. Volunteers facilitate the sourcing of items and grading them as well as on the sale days.
Friends of Ruyton Environmental Sustainability and TravelSmart (FOREST)
FOREST is a group of parent volunteers who support existing Sustainability Policies within the School. FOREST incorporates TravelSmart, an initiative of the state government, which encourages us to reduce our reliance on cars, and to make better and smarter choices about other forms of transport. In 2007 the Walking School Bus Programme was introduced in the Junior School and is a great way to walk with your children to School.

Year Level Representatives
Year Level Representatives help to build a sense of community at individual year levels and develop a strong contact network for all our families. They play an important role in welcoming new families to the School community. Year Level Reps also assist with special events in the School Calendar, such as the Ruyton Luncheon and the Ruyton Ball.
The Parents of Ruyton (POR) Committee
The Committee assist in organising whole School activities like Mothers' Day and Father' Day Breakfasts, The Ruyton Luncheon, The Ruyton Ball (held every second year) and they help with Open Mornings. They also assist with other activities like co-ordinating the Biggest Morning tea with the Year Level Reps and organising speakers for the POR Parent Education Series which run each year. The POR Committee also nominates one or two representatives to participate in the Victorian Parents Council (VPC).
