Operation Christmas Shoebox

  

Thanks to the Riverdale School Community, Pounamu Atawhai have packed 15 shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child.  This is a worthy cause and we will be able to track the boxes, using a special bar code, to see where in the world they are sent.

A big thank you to everyone who supported this cause.

World Literacy Day - Book Character Day

We were lucky to have visitors from the Community at Riverdale on Friday to help us celebrate World Literacy Day.  
 

 

Children were read to throughout the morning and then took part in a whole school parade so we could share our costumes.  
Check them out!
  

 

  

Once again, these events can't take place without the help and enthusiasm of our wonderful Riverdale School staff.  
Can you recognise them under their crazy masks and wigs??

NED's Mindset Mission

Our children enjoyed NED’s visit this week.
Never give up.
Encourage others.
Do their best.
After selling a staggering number of yoyo's a NED Zone was set up over lunch time.
 


Salvation Army Foodbank

We had a wonderful response to our call for canned food for the Watties "Cans for Good" and Salvation Army Foodbank last week.  We managed to collect over 250 cans.  Thank you to the families who supported this cause.
 



"The Old Town Boys" Band

"The Old Town Boys" band had their first 2 gigs this week.  
The first was as the opening act for the Intermediate Super Arts Band competition and the second at the Monrad Intermediate Assembly.  

Congratulations Cruz, Saul, Matty and Cam.

Kind Hearts Care Packages

A huge thank you to Korbin for making up another 30 Kind Heart packs this week.  He continues to support this worthy cause and it wouldn't be as successful as it is if it wasn't for him.  Korbin has made posters to display around the school in the hope of increasing the number
of donations we receive from our wonderful community.
