“Our children are the rock on which our future will be built, our greatest asset as a nation. They will be the leaders of our country, the creators of our national wealth, those who care and protect our people” – Nelson Mandela

Mandela Day 2019

This year for Mandela Day we at Riverside would like to give back to our community.

The gr 000-3 learners would like to collect any clothes, toys (in working condition), blankets and toiletries to donate to the Durbanville Children’s Home.

We humbly ask that you send to school all items that you are able to donate so that we can then deliver these to the home on behalf of Riverside College.

The grade 4 – 6 learners will be reaching out to the residents in the Protea Old Age Home. We ask that each child donate R5 in order for us to buy some treats for the residents to enjoy when our learners visit them as their contribution to the 67 minutes campaign.

Our learners will spend 67 minutes chatting to, playing games with and reciting some of their favourite poetry to these elderly souls, many of whom have no family of their own. [read more]

In assembly this week, our learners received a very inspirational message about a girl who was born without legs. However, this did not stop her from achieving her dreams. She is now a touring aerialist, acrobat and inspirational speaker.

We want our learners to also believe that they can do whatever they want through a positive attitude, hard work and perseverance. We hope that they are now all inspired to study hard and reach their full potential. [read more]

I have been noticing lately how our accent defines us and makes us the unique individuals that we are.  Some accents are “harsh” or “scary” or “intimidating”, and then some accents are “romantic”, like the Italian or French accent.

Accents are not inherited, and you are not born with an accent. Children develop language from the people around them, such as their parents, teachers and from other stimuli they're exposed to, such as television. [read more]
