Ridley College is nestled in the beautiful Niagara Region, on Thursday as part of the Grade 9 Geography curriculum students participate in a Niagara field day to see some of the geographic splendors of the area. This year stops included ‘Whitty Farms’ (a Niagara Century Farm); the St. Catharines Museum at Lock 3 of the Welland Canal; the Sir Adam Beck Generating Station; and, a ride to the base of Niagara Falls aboard the Maid of the Mist. The day proved to be an excellent learning experience for our Grade 9s and a terrific opportunity to see the stunning scenery around the Niagara Region.

What a weekend! HomeComing 2013 started off with a spirit day on Friday – the entire school dressed in orange and black! The students and faculty then headed outside to form 1-2-5 on the field in front of Lower School – see video below!
On Saturday morning, despite the downpour of rain our rowers headed out on the Henley course to row with alumni. Check out the video below to hear from two of the first rowers at Ridley College from the class of 1968:
Throughout the weekend our athletes competed and had some great results. Lower School Field Hockey, U/13 Girls Basketball and U/13 Boys Soccer went un-defeated against Hillfield-Strathallan School. On the north side of the campus, wins in Boys Soccer, and ties in Field Hockey and Ice Hockey made our alumni proud. A special thanks to prefects, tour guides, choir members, athletes and the Ridley community at large in helping to make the weekend memorable for our alumni!
Are you still finding orange and black paint in the oddest of places? If you are, it must mean you participated in Snake Dance.
The longstanding Ridley tradition took place on Friday night. Orange and black blanketed the campus and a huge bonfire lit up the sky – an awesome display of Ridley College school spirit. Check out this video made by Maciej K. ’15:
It has been a very eventful couple of days on the Ridley College campus. On Tuesday we welcomed over 200 new students to campus for move-in day and orientation. The field house was a buzz of activity with booths set up for athletics, the health centre, visas, uniforms, family mentoring program and so much more.
Students were welcomed into their new homes away from home by current students and everyone gathered in their housemasters home for lunch.
In the afternoon Ridley 101 presentations were held for new parents and students.
On Wednesday we welcomed back our returning students for move-in and orientation. We are off to camp today until Saturday! Looking forward to sharing our pictures and video from Camp White Pine and Camp Onondoga.
