We trust that you had a lovely holiday with your loved ones. We are looking forward to a busy yet exciting term.
“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]
