Ridgeway Preparatory Outreach Programme

Our children contributed whole-heartedly to our drive to collect food and donations during Mandela Month which was in turn donated to Mukovha wa Bale creche.

The school expressed their heartfelt gratitude to the Ridgeway Prep community for their generosity.

From the Principal’s desk Dear parents, We have once again come to the end of yet another busy, but fruitful term. The drop to level 2 saw an increase of students returning to school.

Parents have been anxious about the lack of physical contact and play time during school hours, due to the Covid lockdown period. Think of a child’s development much like a brick wall. If there are bricks missing in the foundations, the likelihood is that the wall will, at some point, wobble and fall down. We see this time and time…
