Learning doesn’t end on the weekend at Ridley. Saturday programming, arts and athletics activities and weekend excursions are all part of the immersive Ridley experience. School-wide outings and activities are regularly planned to engage students on and off campus. 

Long Weekend Trips 

Long weekend trips are planned to offer our students the opportunity to explore new regions, cultures and activities in a safe and organized group atmosphere. Transportation, hotels and meals are all included in the price. Incidentals, souvenirs and snacks are additional. Some excursions may have additional opportunities that are at the expense of the student. 


You must register your student on Orah to participate. Some trips have a limited capacity, so please register early to secure your place. For more information on registering for events on Orah, visit the Orah Help Centre.
