If kindness is sown, then kindness is what you shall receive.
The term is flying by, with three weeks left. This week the students listened to a presentation from ‘I am Hope’ about kindness.
The builders have started work on the Archgola in the quad area and we look forward to seeing the finished product. This will be a great area for children to play under on wet days and for classes to work under when needed.
The Riversdale Home and School has kindly donated the cake auction money back to the school to purchase more sandpit toys for the new sandpit.
The shade sails have been put up and look fabulous. Hopefully sand will be delivered next week and the sandpit will be complete and ready for excited children to enjoy.
