Opening Day here at Ridley College was a busy day, as we welcomed 650 students and their families from 44 countries around the world. New and returning students gathered at the campus to get their first view of the year ahead.

Families were welcomed by Headmaster, Ed Kidd before heading out on campus for registration and orientation events.

Students and their families had a chance to mingle with teachers, explore the opportunities offered at Ridley and meet their fellow students and Prefects.

“We had a lovely day – felt very welcomed and confident that [our son] will indeed flourish at Ridley.”

While students and their families were busy unpacking, we asked parents what advice they’d like to give their kids as they start another chapter of their life. Here’s what they had to say.

We wish all of our students great success as the 2015-16 school year begins!

Mural Featuring Painting of Ridley College Unveiled

Mr. Leigh, Headmaster and Mr. and Mrs. Clarke In Front of Mural at Train Station

On Saturday, a new 30-metre long mural was unveiled at the St. Catharines train station that features a painting of Ridley College. The mural depicts farmers, circus animals, newlyweds and everyday people who’ve passed through the station for decades as well as historical sites in St. Catharines, including Ridley College. The train has been a mode of transportation for many Ridley College students over the years, so it is fitting that the school is featured in the mural.
