Ruyton Girls School

STEM in the early years

In 2016, a group of educators from Catholic Education Western Australia explored Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) education with young children. Sarah Denholm, the recently appointed Director of Ruyton Early Learning at Ruyton Girls’ School, documented and shared their journey through the publication of the iBook STEM in the Early Years: A Journey.

Young children are capable and competent learners who have their own theories and thinking about the world around them. Educators should acknowledge children’s prior knowledge and foster their natural curiosity for STEM. Early experience with STEM helps build skills for problem solving, research, investigation, creativity, design and construction.

Wellbeing for Learning; Year 7 Camp

On the 15th of February Year 7 students along with their Year 10 Peer Support Leaders spent 3 very busy days at The Great Aussie Bush Camp learning new skills and experiencing new challenges. (This camp is part of our intensive Wellbeing for Learning Program as we recognise the need to tailor our learning experience to reflect the interests and needs of each student.)

The Year 7 camp had a myriad of benefits for those who attended. It provided an opportunity to strengthen and forge new bonds within the cohort, especially for students who have just joined the All Saints Grammar family. Aside from individual perceptions of capabilities and possibilities being extended, students also learnt about the value of teamwork. It was heartening to see the steady improvements afforded by encouragement and burgeoning team spirit with specific reference to our Year 10 Peer Support Team, they must be commended for the way they accepted the responsibility of mentoring the Year 7 students – thank you!

Principal of Ruyton Girls’ School, Ms Linda Douglas, reflects on the power of conversation.

Ursula K. Le Guin, writer, explored the vulnerable process of conversation in a piece titled Telling Is Listening. It focuses on understanding the art of conversation, where the message involves both the speaker and the listener, but is also a relationship between the two. The message is a complex code: a culture, in which the language, the speaker, and the listener are all embedded. Le Guin describes face-to-face human communication as intersubjective, a continuous interchange between two consciousnesses. Instead of alternating between the roles of speaker and listener, between the active and the passive, it is continuous and goes both ways all the time.

Trinity boys learn the art of selflessness

Year 11 and 12 students from Trinity Grammar School, dedicated themselves to providing service to those most in need, as part of Trinity’s annual Service Week programme. One of the beneficiaries was Jervis Bay School whose students revelled in the attention provided by Senior Trinity boys.

Service Week is an initiative of Trinity Grammar School designed to encourage students to consider the impact they can have as both an individual, and as part of the School, on the broader outside community. The programme’s activities serve to raise awareness amongst the boys of the inequalities that may exist outside their own immediate sphere. Activities provide practical hands on experience by allowing boys to work collaboratively alongside a variety of charity groups, community volunteers and schools.

During the week-long annual programme, Year 11 and 12 students commit to a variety of activities such as feeding the homeless, serving the elderly, assisting to educate young people, and supporting charity centres and community support initiatives.

At Jervis Bay School, located near Nowra on the NSW South Coast, two Trinity students were placed in each of the four classes to assist students one-on-one and in small groups. Although they concentrated mainly on literacy and numeracy, the Trinity boys also helped Jervis Bay students prepare meals for family and friends as part of Harmony Day celebrations.
