Ridleians of Distinction

Celebrating 125 Years

For more than 125 years, Ridley College has graduated men and women who have led flourishing lives and made significant contributions to their community.

As part of the 125th Anniversary of Ridley College, the Alumni Committee researched and prepared profiles of 125 Ridleians of Distinction — Ridley alumni who exemplify our school’s motto Terar Dum Prosim.

Some Old Ridleians have helped to shape the school during its inception and its evolution to the Ridley we know today. Some left the Marriott Gates to go on to achieve amazing and inspirational recognition in their chosen field. Many did both.
