Welcome to Burgoyne House 2017-18

The new school year is off to a great start!  We have been to the movies, had pizza parties, birthday celebrations, go-karting and a grand trip to Niagara Falls!  Here are some photos of our year so far!

Burgoyne House 2015-2016

Hello! My name is Kelsey Cirone and I’m happy to introduce the Burgoyne House website!

As the new Assistant Head of House for Burgoyne, I will be updating this website with photos, videos, and updates from the dorm. Mrs. Karen Thacker, the Burgoyne Housemaster, and I have been lucky to have spent almost two months with our 28 boarders (14 boys and 14 girls) who have come to Ridley College from different countries all around the world!

The dorm is going well with each boarder settling into our routines and getting to know each other. We have been exploring the topics of cooperation and friendship in our house meetings and have enjoyed some social time as well! We have had a lot of fun in the dorm, as well as on our Sunday trips – we have been to the movies, the zoo and bowling (photos of these events coming soon). I’m hoping that this website will give you more insight into life as a Burgoyne boarding student 🙂

Sunday Trips

The Burgoyne House is fortunate enough to attend weekly outings together every Sunday. So far, we have had the opportunity to go bowling, to the movies, Go-Karting, and to the Toronto Zoo! Here are some of the photos that were taken on these trips.

Photo Review – Another Great Year!

2013 – 2014 Was a terrific year here in Burgoyne House!  It just seemed to go so fast!  No sooner were we unpacking and meeting each other and off to camp, then it was Christmas and March Break and off to summer holidays!  I have enjoyed getting to know each and every boarder and as always, as I say good-bye, I know I will miss them, especially those who will not be returning.  I do look forward to our returning boarders, whether they are coming back to the dorm or on to grade nine at Ridley!  Best wishes everyone – have a wonderful summer and I will see you in the fall!  Enjoy the photos of our year and I hope they provide you with great memories of the fun we had!
