Our Community

The Moreton Bay Fig Society

The Moreton Bay Fig Society was established in 2018 in conjunction with Ruyton Girls’ School's 140th Anniversary. This Society honours all of our benefactors who have chosen to support the School directly through a gift in their Will. Bequest benefactors will be recognised as members of The Moreton Bay Fig Society, honouring them for making a gift that will make a difference in the lives of future generations of Ruyton girls.

Moreton Bay Fig Bequest Society 

In 1878 the importance of empowering girls, through purposeful education at Ruyton Girls' School, began with the foresight of our founder Mrs Charlotte Anderson.  Today our girls enjoy the benefits of those that came before us. At Ruyton we aim high and encourage our girls to dream big. Bequests provide Ruyton with a host of transformational opportunities that are not possible through annual student fees. Bequests enable us to provide the best possible learning facilities for our students and staff, so our traditional and modern buildings all provide innovative learning environments. Bequests will promote and support diversity in our community through the expansion of the Founder's Scholarship program which awards financial needs-based scholarships to girls entering our senior school. Bequests can also support the development of new signature learning experiences for the girls and invest further in the professional development of our highly-valued staff.
