A website has been set up which contains numerous photos, scans and articles of general interest to students and teachers from the mid 1960’s – early 1970’s era at James Ruse.

These are now available in the Multimedia section.
It contains almost all the class photos for the Class of 1972 (1st Form to 6th Form), but there are also staff photos and general photos showing students from all forms at Ruse during those years.  These include sporting, stock boys and School Council photos, all of which are captioned with the student names.  One particularly interesting photo is an aerial shot of the school taken in about 1960, before the surrounding residential streets of Carlingford were fully developed.  Many, but not all of the photos’ came from the JR Archives courtesy of Robin Legge.
Among other items are scans of the programmes for all the musicals from 1967 to 1972, an obituary/tribute to The Boss (who died in 1996) and links to websites about popular teachers Colin Anderson and Mike McClellan.
Any contributions of scans of relevant photos and documents for addition to the website would be most welcome.  It is hoped to cover the general era 1965 – 1975.  Any inquiries about the website can be directed to
