Future-focused Education
Schools, just like many other parts of our community, are experiencing significant change. They are trying to keep pace with rapidly evolving technology, changes in the world of work, and the demands being placed on our young people. This presentation will look at some of the key trends impacting on education and how schools are responding to these trends by adopting innovative approaches not only to what and how students learn, but also where they learn. Come along to hear how schools are preparing students for 'their future; not our past'.

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.
