Virtual School Spirits Event

April 8th, we’re getting into the spring of things with a little help from a few of our local faves—you’re going to want to save the date for this one! We’ve partnered with Creekside WineryTrust Beer Bar and Dillon’s Small Batch Distillery to put together an online social that’s sure to please. 
Register in advance for your very own Ridley box, filled with decadent treats and beverages—we can't wait to get our hands on the black truffle chips—which will be delivered to your home in advance of the event. Sip and savour during opening remarks from Headmaster Kidd, then get the inside scoop from each of our local vendors. (Niagara tasting trip this summer, anyone?) Later, we’ll keep the party going for those who wish to stay on and catch up. 
Your box will include a bottle of Creekside’s Syrah, paired with Chef’s Smoked Almonds; a four-pack of mixed beer with black truffle chips from Trust; and two bottles of negroni from Dillon’s, paired with playful cocktail lollipops courtesy of Bushel & Peck.  
This event is adults only and is for our community members in the Golden Horseshoe and the GTA. Please be sure to register by March 31st to ensure we can ship your box to you on time. We look forward to seeing you there!

Fall Homecoming 2020

As always, the safety of our community is paramount, and the care and concern we have for each other’s health and well-being top of mind as we plan for the months ahead. Accordingly, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Homecoming event, planned for early October 2020.

We are sincerely disappointed that we will be unable to host you and your classmates on campus this fall. Homecoming is one of our most coveted traditions, a time when we welcome alumni back ‘home’ to campus, witness long-awaited reunions between old friends, share stories from our past, and create new and lasting memories. 
We are pleased to announce that you will be invited to join Homecoming 2021—an even bigger celebration which will provide Ridleians with the opportunity to connect with friends who were in neighbouring grades back in the day. 
It’s more important than ever that we keep our connections strong and our loved ones close. And when we open our gates to you next, we know the celebration will be that much sweeter.
