Position Information

Ruse Public School is located in South Western Sydney and has a student enrolment of 438. Our students come from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds. In 2020 we established a Support Unit, taking an additional 21 students in two Multicategorical classes and one Moderate/Autism class. We have seen an increasing trend of students with an EAL/D background, which currently sits at 28%. 8% of EAL/D families are from Arabic speaking backgrounds, which is growing and is our largest group. We have 8% Aboriginal students, an increase from 5% over the past 2 years. 

Ruse Public School is committed to continuous improvement and quality service. The school provides a safe and supportive environment where students are nurtured, valued and encouraged to achieve their personal best. Highly dedicated, committed and caring staff members provide a range of excellent educational programs that meet the academic, cultural, physical, emotional and social needs of our students.

A comprehensive curriculum complements our core values and is characterised by a strong focus in literacy, numeracy, sport and the performing arts. Proactive welfare programs provide an inclusive environment and focus on building respect, resilience and social responsibility along with the desire to excel. Parents, community members and our local schools play a vital role in the life of the school. These strong partnerships contribute to the outstanding quality of education. Kentlyn PS and Ruse PS have united to create a professional learning community.

Over the last four years, we have established an authentic and symbiotic relationship to ensure our students receive best educational practice, every single day. Our vision for both schools is the pursuit of excellence for every student, every day in every classroom.
