What's On

Proposed Enrolment Scheme

Ridgway School has been directed by the Ministry of Education to implement an enrolment scheme and is now consulting with our community on our proposed scheme. The proposed enrolment scheme can be viewed here and an interactive map showing the zone boundaries is also available for viewing.

Members of our school community who wish to get more information are invited to meet with the principal 22 July 7pm at the school. Please RSVP to the school office if you plan to attend.

Other community members who wish to give feedback on the proposed enrolment scheme can do so by emailing principal@ridgway.school.nz or attending a public meeting at 6pm - 6.30pm 29 July 2020 (please RSVP to principal@ridgway.school.nz).

The board will make a final decision on zone boundaries and scheme details after considering all feedback and the proposal will be submitted to the Secretary for Education in August.

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.
