Welcome to Rideau High School!​
News and Information from the Principal

Rideau Memorabilia

We've received a number of inquiries about what will happen to some Rideau memorabilia when the school closes in June.  A number of items will be transferred to Gloucester High School in September in recognition of Rideau's 60 years of excellence in academics, athletics and the arts.  Other items will be archived at the Board Office for safekeeping.  Still some other items will be made available to the public through direct sale or online auction.  Please keep an eye on this website throughout the month of June for more information.

Athletic Wall of Fame Photographs

Over the years, the photographs on our Athletic Wall of Fame have sustained damage due to exposure and age.  Over the past few weeks, we have been creating digital versions of all photos and they are available to those who wish to have a keepsake of their time at Rideau. Watch this site for a list of all available photos.  In the meantime, if you are looking for a specific photo, please contact the school and we'll see if we have it.

Yearbooks For Sale

We have a number of back issues of the Rideau yearbook, Invictus.  Available Years: 1971, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1983, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011. They can be purchased in the main office for $30 each (cash only).​
