Riversdale School Newsletter Term 2 Week 10

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.

We are saddened to hear of the death of Wendy Lobb. Wendy was our beautiful bus driver for the Wendon Bus, that Michael currently drives. Our thoughts and heartfelt sympathy are with Michael and his family at this time.

The Riversdale School Kapa Haka were outstanding when they performed their Waiata at the Pyramid Bridge opening on Friday 26th June. The students made us feel very proud and we received lovely feedback about their performance.

This week all classes had a session with Felicia, from St John, to learn about injury prevention. Junior students learnt about how to recognise dangers, prevent falls, and use appropriate safety equipment. Senior students learnt about types of injuries, exploring risks, and managing injuries.

This afternoon we had our first Community Assembly for the term, and it was outstanding. It was so great to see each class showcase what they have been learning this term at school.

Have a wonderful holiday and we look forward to seeing everyone back on Monday 20th July ready for an action packed term of learning.
