It’s been an exciting journey for the building project here at Ridley College. Three years ago, we reached out to the Ridley community to consider partnering with us to support the Property Development Fund. We’re delighted to announce that since then, our generous donors have contributed approximately 1.27 million to our new building from our total goal of 1.4 million. We’re also excited to share with you images of the construction lifetime and completed building.
From raising funds to support the project to listening to sledgehammers in the first light of day, we’re looking forward to embracing this new building with our Ridley community and improving campus life across the board.
Our community, residents, students and staff have taken on board this project with great patience and enthusiasm. We would like to extend a thank you toward them for their grace during the construction.
Our mission here at Ridley College is to equip men and women to serve God in a rapidly changing and increasingly complex world. Providing students with quality facilities and learning spaces allows them the opportunity to engage with their education in an efficient and practical way.
Some of the everyday ways the new building will help aid this is through:
‘I’m looking forward to a real entrance to the College that is welcoming and symbolises the significance of Ridley as well as sufficient medium-sized classrooms for classes, meetings and groups work. The lift access for people with a disability is needed and says they are welcome.
The design supports collaborative learning, informal discussion and better community experience. The library is such a pleasant place to study – it really makes you want to work. It makes it easier and more fun for students to engage in their learning.’ – Acting Principal, Tim Foster
God has been gracious toward the College, and we’re excited to continue with the mission and build up servants of Christ. If you would like to attend the Ridley Dedication service, please submit your RSVP by clicking here.
