June 2005 - from the Principal

After 15 years of passionate commitment to our school Mr Gerard Yeo has been promoted to Head Teacher Social Studies at the Distance Education High School.  Gerard takes up his new post on Monday July 18.  I am sure all past students will wish Mr Yeo professional success at his new school.
I am travelling to Canberra this Thursday for the presentation of International Olympiad Blazers in the Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Informatics fields.  This year for the first time ever we have a representative in each team, with two in Physics and two in Mathematics, totalling seven
representatives from James Ruse out of a total of 24.  A brilliant achievement!
Our school is certainly more than bricks and mortar and it was great to see the 120+ ex-students who attended the “Back to Ruse Day” on Saturday 5th March.  A new Gymnasium is the only building we have yet to construct to complete our vision and this is projected to cost $1.5 Million.  In our Building Fund we will have $1.0 Million by the end of this year suggesting the new Gym may not be far off.
I have attached an addendum to your newsletter “Student Achievements for 2004”.  Worth a read!
