Family Day

The Whanau Hui group welcomes all families from school on Saturday 1st April 2017 for a Family Day at the Vogelmorn Hall/green.  The day will run from 3pm until 8pm. This is a great social opportunity for parents to mix and mingle with their tamariki. We encourage people to bring a picnic / food for their meal. A barbeque will be available for use too. We will have some poi toa (large poi's) on hand for our tamariki and parents to play with and people are welcome to bring balls for a kick around etc.  A gold coin donation to help fund the hire of the venue would be appreciated. We hope you can join us!

Whāia te iti kahurangi ki te tūohu koe me he maunga teitei

Seek the treasure you value most dearly: if you bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain.

This whakatauki is about aiming high for what is truly valuable, but it's real message is to be persistent and not let obstacles stop you from reaching your goal.

This Whakatauki relates to our Resilience value.

At Ridgway we encourage children to be persistent and to maintain enthusiasm and humour in all circumstances.
