2015-16 Prefects Announced!

The following students have accepted my invitation to serve as School Prefects for the academic year 2015 – 2016.  It is our pleasure to announce their names.

The Prefects are the School’s strongest leaders, they are committed to Ridley and they subsequently uphold all its ideals and traditions. To a great extent, the Prefect team is charged with influencing the atmosphere, tone and the spirit of the school. We were impressed by the quality of all the candidates who stood for Prefectship this year.  In particular, we are excited by this dynamic group of incoming Prefects; consequently, we are confident that Ridley College will be in good hands next year.   Please join us in congratulating the following students.

First Boys and Girls Rugby Capture Gold at CISAA Championships!

It was a gold medal finish for both the First Girls and Boys Rugby teams made even sweeter by claiming the victories in front of a home crowd! Teamwork, dedication, and some fancy footwork lead to gold medals for both teams. Graduating members of the teams have some extra special memories heading into Prize Day tomorrow.
