Ridley College Annual Fund 2016-2017
STEEPED IN TRADITION. FOCUSED ON THE FUTURE.
By supporting this year’s Annual Fund, you’ll be helping to ensure that generations of Ridleians have the tools, resources and facilities needed to prepare them to lead in a global society.
Our 2016-2017 fundraising projects support the goals of our Strategic Plan and aim to strike a balance between initiatives that preserve our school’s history and promote pioneering approaches to learning.
1. GREAT HALL ENHANCEMENTS
The Great Hall is one of the most iconic and well-used spaces on campus. Our goal is to
restore and improve its furnishings, lighting and acoustics to maintain a warm, welcoming
atmosphere for students today and tomorrow. Naming opportunities are available.
2. MCLAUGHLIN RESOURCE CENTRE
3. MULTI-USE FIELDHOUSE SEATING
Our Lower School library has served its growing community well, however, with new
learning demands, our younger students require a space that equally encourages
collaborative learning and independent study. With modular furniture and new technology,
this centre can be transformed into a creative classroom, workstations, reading corners and an
overall inviting place to discover.
This school year, our student body has exceeded 660. This record-enrollment makes it
challenging to find a single, indoor location where the entire school can meet. Retractable bleachers in
the Fieldhouse will help facilitate large-scale assemblies for our entire community.
4. DIGITAL ARCHIVES PROJECT
With a rich history spanning 127 years, Ridley has a healthy collection of cherished archival
documents, photos, videos and memorabilia. In an effort to preserve our treasured mementos,
we would like to undertake the task of digitizing these collections which requires the
proper technology and personnel. In a digital state, our catalogue will survive much longer and will
be easily accessed online from around the globe.
5. POSITIVE EDUCATION FELLOWSHIP
Ridley values the power of positive psychology and its ability to enhance the student
experience. A ‘Positive Education Fellowship’ would enable us to partner with a top, world-
renowned expert in this field to help evolve scholarly research, teaching practices and
groundbreaking pedagogies at Ridley and around the world; ultimately supporting our
students and putting us on the leading edge of independent schools in Canada.
6. SCHOLARSHIPS & BURSARIES
By growing our financial assistance, through endowed funds, we will be able to ensure that
we continue to attract the best students from around the globe and that Ridley remains
competitive in the world market and at the forefront of all Canadian independent schools.
