October 2006 - from the Principal

This is my last Principal’s Report as I have announced my retirement to take effect from the end of this year.  Of the many successes our school has achieved one goal has yet to be realised and I speak of your Union.  Over the past 15 years I have tried to galvanise our ex-students into action via regular meetings and social activities with an aim to support current students and provide networking opportunities for all.  This has simply not happened even though we have 1870 ex-students registered as Union members and you have a permanent school funded secretariat in Mrs Robin Legge.  The new principal, yet to be appointed, may not value your association and withdraw both financial and school support, I hope not.
After 15 years at James Ruse I have had 15 years of challenges and enjoyment taking your school from strength to strength.  Just remember that you have developed your school and it is your school!
