Community of James Ruse


The Community of James Ruse (COJR) plays an integral role in the James Ruse Agricultural High School community. We aim to bring parents, staff, students and citizens together to benefit the interests of the students and the school.

Through the Annual Contribution and various activities such as Food Days and the Annual Raffle, COJR raises valuable funds that are donated to the school to improve its facilities, purchase new equipment and resources, and support identified projects.

COJR meetings are held on two Tuesday evenings during each school term in the Lecture Theatre. At the first meeting of each term, guest speakers are usually invited to present a seminar to the Community. All parents and carers are welcomed to attend these meetings.

We encourage you to contact us on cojr12@gmail.com should there be any questions, ideas or issues you wish to raise or would like to contribute/volunteer at any of our COJR events. Alternatively you can get in touch with one of the Committee members listed below.
