Ruyton recently hosted a parent information session conducted by The Fathering Project. The University of Western Australia-based non-profit team of professionals, aims to support fathers in their vital role as Dads. We now have The Fathering Project books and a DVD available for loan.

It was pleasing to see so many entries in our 2015 Book Week competition. Our congratulations are extended to the following winners - Juliet Bland (Year 4), Abigail Richards (Year 6) Leyla Yucel (Year 8)

On Friday 11 September, Alice Pung visited Ruyton to speak to Year 7 and Year 8 students about her personal journey to becoming a writer. Her latest book ‘Laurinda’ tells the story of Lucy Lam, a clever scholarship student and her experiences within a private girls’ school. It deals with the pressures of teenage life and the desire to fit in, balanced against the inherent cruelty a school culture based around privilege and intergenerational wealth and status.

​"However big or small your dream is, you've got to keep it. You never give it away. Because one day, miraculously, that dream might come true. When I was young I had a dream to be an author. And now, here I am in Australia in this Reading Matters Conference, speaking to you." Sally Gardner
