Wellbeing sits at the heart of Ruyton, creating an environment where every student can thrive.

At Ruyton we empower every girl to flourish by embracing emotional, social, physical and academic wellbeing practices. This approach supports our girls to lead lives of impact and purpose. With courage, character, and the desire to make a difference, our girls are empowered to achieve their personal best in all they do.

Being known and valued is the cornerstone of every girls’ educational journey at Ruyton. Our size means we know their unique strengths, aspirations and personal challenges and value their individuality. Through our flexible and holistic educational model every student is challenged to understand and seek their personal best with courage and integrity. 

In our Junior School, we emphasise the growth and development of the whole child with wellbeing and learning interwoven in all that we do. We know that learning will flourish if a child feels safe and supported in their school environment that works in partnership with the home. We embed the culture of wellbeing within and across year levels and throughout our wider community.  

Our tailored Prep to Year 6 Wellbeing program has been purposefully designed to cater to the unique needs of our girls, embracing our School values, student agency and positive behaviour approach. A sequential yet proactive and responsive program, it aims to equip our students with the wellbeing knowledge, skills and strategies to respond confidently and thoughtfully to the demands of their ever-changing world and navigate life's challenges.
