Over the past 50 years, Interact has been part of James Ruse school life, making it the longest running such club in a NSW high school. With over 8000 clubs in over 100 countries, Interact is one of the most significant and fastest growing programs of Rotary. The James Ruse Interact Club was founded to provide students with opportunities for fellowship and community service.
Through our sponsorship by Ryde Rotary, we have also been able to participate in MUNA, the Model United Nations Assembly. This is run by Rotary each year and in which teams from various schools represent countries and debate relevant worldwide issues such as climate change and capital punishment. Students learn more about the United Nations and its goals in terms of world peace and health, education and living standards for the earth while at the same time developing debating skills and learning about different cultures.
The club meets regularly in the lecture theatre at recess on Monday.
