THE RIDGE #RIGHTSTUFF ACTION DAY 1 JUNE 2019
Parents, boys and staff spent the day assisting the greater Johannesburg community as part of the Ridge Right Stuff Action Day. The Ridge family spent time at The Johannesburg Zoo, Zoo Lake, Salvazione School, Johannesburg Children’s Home and many other organisations.
GRADE 4’s BUILDING STRUCTURES
The grade 4 boys had to build strong and rigid structures using toothpicks and jelly sweets in science this week. It was a great way to link learning with a little fun and a sugar rush to top of it all.
ALL NEW GRADE 1 PLAYGROUND
The Grade 1 boys headed onto their new playground for the first time this week. There was great excitement and shrieks of laughter could be heard as the boys entered into the beautiful new space.
GRADE 7’s – THE TEMPEST
The Grade 7s began to explore the words and worlds of Shakespeare through his play The Tempest. Discovering strange and powerful characters, passionate themes and gripping action has caught everyone’s attention.
ROBOTICS AT THE RIDGE
The Grade 4 boys learnt to code the EV3 robots. Once the robots were coded the boys had to complete various challenges on different mats.
It gives me great pleasure to report that our very own Kabir Budlender in Grade 6 is the winner of the Vocal Section (Jnrs) of the Johannesburg Festival for the Advancement of Music. This prestigious competition garners entries from all over the greater Johannesburg Metropolitan area and beyond. I am inordinately proud of his achievement (says his singing teacher, Mrs Morrick).
ROCK CLIMBING COMPETITION
The Ridge climbing boys participated in their first bouldering competition at Rock Valley in Centurion last Friday.
