What languages are offered at Ruyton Girls’ School?

Girls have the opportunity to learn a second language from Ruyton Early Learning to Year 12. Chinese and French are taught in the Junior School and girls make a language choice from Year 5. The language chosen is studied for two years until the girls are given the opportunity to make a choice again when entering Year 7. Whichever language is chosen at Year 7, the girls study this language until the end of Year 10. Girls may then choose to continue to study the language as part of their VCE program.

At what age do children start in the Kindergarten?

Children start in our Early Learning at three years of age (must have turned three by 31 January of year of entry), and at four years of age in our Pre-Prep programs.
