Riversdale School Newsletter Term 3 Week 3

Welcome to our new student, Sapphira Moncur-Cook

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.

Wheels Wednesday

Wheels Wednesday was a great success with lots of children having fun on their wheels at morning tea and lunch time. It was great to see children showing kindness towards one and other.


Reminder - If children do not bring a helmet they cannot use their wheels. A helmet must be worn for all types of wheels at school.


We will be having another Wheels Wednesday in Week 7 on Wednesday 2 September.


School Disco


A big thank you to Rob for an outstanding disco. We appreciate your generosity providing the students with professional lighting and music.



Lockdown - We will be having a lockdown practice

on Monday.
