Kind Hearts Blankets

Jessica from Peggy Pearl was very busy over the holidays sewing our knitted squares together.  She has finished 3 blankets BUT still has 3 to go. Don't they look amazing.

Kind Hearts Knitting

Lots of people were extremely busy during lock down knitting for Kind Hearts. Today I have 179 squares to drop off!  That is a huge amount.

A particular mention to Connor and Erica Aberdeen's Grandma Dorothy who has worked so hard to create these pieces.

The squares are made into blankets for children in the PN Hospital. Each blanket is made up of 35 squares and takes 4 - 5 hours to sew together by an organisation called Peggy Purl.

Kind Hearts Club

The Poutama and Pounamu Atawhai Kind Hearts Club runs on a Friday afternoon.

The children made more Love Letters for Starship Hospital. 

We did our first baking for Kind Hearts last week and boy was it fun.....and....yummy! The children all got to try a piece of Superwine Slice before it was delivered.

I am feeling extremely proud of Riverdale School, and community, for receiving the March award for Kind Hearts.  Check us out!

Twilight@Riverdale Community Night

What a night! Twilight@Riverdale was a huge success as we had so many of our community join us.


Our face painters were extremely busy creating all sorts of creatures.


And, we managed to create a new school mural for our swimming pool wall.  

A special mention to Mrs Kenyon, Constable AJ, NZ Fire Service, Lynden Noakes, Damien Mulcahy, Feekery Painters & Decorators, Maxwells Line 4 Square and all the Riverdale Teachers for making this night so perfect.

Thanks from Neonatal Ward
