On Monday we celebrated another hugely successful cross country carnival. All students participated well and some exceptional performances were recorded. Thank you to Mr Low, Mrs McKenzie, Mr Driscoll, Ms Russell and Mrs Novotni who organised and ran the event so smoothly. Thank you to Mothers’ Club who sold refreshments at the end of the race to the many thirsty runners.
Over the last two weekends Ms Jenns and Mr Pakes have led two Duke of Edinburgh hikes, one very soggy and one beautiful. The students have coped well with the changing weather and were praised for their positive behaviour. Thank you Ms Jenns and Mr Pakes.
The Girls KO Volleyball team played Cumberland in Round 2 of the competition. All girls involved played well to WIN 3 sets to 1. They now move into Round 3. Our boys team was narrowly defeated by Cumberland (2-3). The boys all played with great determination and won the first 2 sets.
Congratulations to Aletheia Yosaviera of Year 11 who competed in Round 2 of the Lions’ Club Youth of the Year last Tuesday night. Please read Aletheia’s reflection below.

A letter received by the Principal regarding one of our James Ruse students:-
I just wanted to take the time to email my
congratulations for the attitudes, behaviour and actions of one of your
students on a Blue Mountains train on the 16/03. This young man conducted
himself in a way which put many of his fellow adult passengers to shame. His
actions are testament to his school, his parents and most importantly himself.
