What an amazing weekend! HomeComing 2014 was jam-packed and full of Ridley spirit. The weekend began with the Governors' Dinner on Friday evening. Golden Tigers from the class of 1964 were honored along with Mr. Geordie Hendrie '74 for his years of service as Chairman of the Board. On Saturday morning, some brave souls turned up at Henley Island and participated in the alumni row.



In the afternoon, we witnessed a historic event as runners arrived on campus to complete the Charter Run. The 125KM journey began in the wee hours of Saturday and Ridleians participated in 10KM legs throughout the day from Wycliffe College in Toronto until they reached Ridley College. Ridley College has a deep-rooted connection with Wycliffe College. It was at an organizational meeting in September, 1888 in the Principal's study at Wycliffe that a school for boys, to be named Bishop Ridley College, was founded. Please click here to view photos from each leg of the race! 



On Saturday evening members of the Ridley family put on their best black and orange outfits and danced the night away at the 125 Bash! It was a wonderful event and we hope all who attended enjoyed themselves!
