  •  Catering for diverse learners in schools today requires us to teach differently and to organise our school differently to the past.  Children's experience of going to school at Ridgway in 2015, should be very different to their parents experience of school.

  •  When a student works hard on a task set by the teacher, and the work is marked and found to be not quite good enough; shouldn't the student understand why not?  

  •  Is handwriting a lost art? Should we spend time teaching children to write quickly and legibly by hand?

  •  The new year will bring a number of changes to Ridgway School and you may be wondering why.

  • There are strong links between learning and motivation.

  •  We are slowly introducing changes to our classroom organisation to more closely reflect a modern learning environment.  Parents of children in Rooms 1-3 will be noticing some of these changes.

  •  School funding is limited and we rely on parents making voluntary donations and supporting other fundraising efforts to provide the education for our children that our community expect.

  • The trip to the Marine Reserve was an opportunity for students to develop the key competency, "participating and contributing".
