Bonjour à toutes nos familles

Enrolments for 2023

If you have children who are starting school next year, it would be great if you could enrol them now so we have accurate numbers. At this stage we have some space for out of zone enrolments at most year levels, so if you know anyone who lives out of zone and is keen to come to Ridgway, pass on the good news!

Chess Tournament

This is on Tuesday 15 November here at school, run by our expert chess teacher Mark van der Hoorn.  All students are welcome to compete and there is a $5 fee. Please fill out this form to enter your child

Gumboot Friday -  4 November

We have signed up to support Gumboot Friday. Gumboot Friday provides a free counselling service for young people 25 and under.  On Friday 4 November children can wear their gumboots and bring a gold coin to donate to help raise money for this for free counselling service.  We will have a gumboot throw too so might be a good idea to name those gumboots!

Scholastic Book Club

Orders for Issue 7 are open. View the leaflet here. Please place your order directly through Scholastic NZ. Our orders will close on Thursday 3 November.

Lunch orders

Normal service has resumed!  You can order sushi on Thursday and Pita Pit on Friday through Lunchonline

School photos

School photos have been handed out this week - year 7 and 8’s have just been handed out today! Please check your child’s bag if they haven’t made it to you yet.
If you didn’t get a chance to order photos, you can still do so through Inspire.  We sent out an email earlier in the year with the access code for the gallery, but if you can’t find it contact the office and we can give it to you again.
