Student-led Conferences

RidgeView School holds student-led conferences twice a year in Terms 1 and 3. This term student-led conferences will be held on Tuesday 21 August and Wednesday 22 August. This is a wonderful opportunity for your child to share his or her progress, learning and next steps. Please look out for a booking form to be emailed to you. 

Movie Night

The FORS group has organised a showing of the movie Coco. This will take place on Thursday 16 August. The doors open at 5.30pm and the movie starts at 6.00pm. There is no charge for the movie, but FORS will selling yummy goodies such as popcorn, lollies, ice blocks and sausages for $2 each. Pick up time is 8.00pm. This is a family movie and we encourage families to come along and support this event.


There will be notice coming home today asking for the number of people in your family who will be attending to help with numbers for catering.

Year 6s Visit to AJHS

Last Thursday our Year 6s had the opportunity to spend a day at Albany Junior High School. The idea is that they meet some of the teachers, familiarise themselves with the campus and have a taste of the type of learning they will be doing in Year 7. A side benefit of this day is that everyone has a lot of fun. I heard all about dance classes and setting hands and classrooms alight. Thank you to AJHS for organising and hosting this event - it certainly goes a long way towards helping our Year 6s transition to the school.

Visit by AJHS Principal

Stephen Kendall-Jones, the principal of AJHS, will be visiting RidgeView School on Thursday 23 August at 6.30pm to meet with parents of Year 6 students. He will talk about AJHS and answer any of your questions. Parents who attended last year found the evening to be very informative and helpful. Please diarise this date.

Thank you

The students and staff of RidgeView would like to thank Roseanne and Mike Bush for their wonderful donation of a set of Imaginz building and creating pieces. This is a wonderful resource that promises hours of fun for our children.
