Riversdale School Newsletter Term 1 Week 5

Farewell to Bethany Perkin

Tena Koutou Parents, Caregivers and Whanau.

Hello everyone,

Kia ora e hoa mä.

He aroha whakatō, he aroha ka puta mai.

If kindness is sown, then kindness is what you shall receive

It has been pleasing to see students displaying our theme of kindness throughout the school day. Remember to continue discussing kindness with your child/ren and ways they can display kindness both inside and outside of school.

A huge thank you to everyone who supported with preparation for Athletics Day, especially marking the track! This is a huge job and your support was greatly appreciated.

We were fortunate enough to have great weather for Athletics Day today and it was great to see all students giving it their best.
