Ryan Luney will attempt to break a Guinness World Record!


Ryan Luney will officially attempt to break the Guinness book of world records for the most fire breathing back flips in a minute. Ryan has been a fantastic to support to Riverside School since he began his placement in J4 in September 2016. He has to beat 6 in a minute all by himself. Come to Riverside fun night to show him your support. Two parents or friends will be required to count the number of fire breathing flips and  give a witness statement as part of our evidence team. The event will start at 1930. Good luck Ryan!!!

Thanks to 1st Antrim Mums and Tots


Massive thanks to 1st Antrim Presbyterian Church Mums and Tots group who donated £300 to our playground appeal from their sponsored walk/push/ride today. Riverside pupils and staff are very grateful for this support.













Riverside Dance Trance

Huge thanks to Real Trance Family for coming in to dance with our pupils and help us make a video to raise awareness for our much needed fundraising for our new playground. Everyone had such a fun day in making it. Thanks to David Kirkpatrick from Blue Peak Productions for your super duper editing skills.

Here's an amazing thought..... If everyone who saw this video around the globe donated £1, the target would be reached no problem. So feel free to share share share.

You can make a donation here... - Our Crowdfunding page has since been closed. Please contact the school if you would still like to make a donation. 

We have had huge support for this project so far and thank each and every one of you that have already contributed.

The video can be seen here….

Riverside would like to thank Mark Allen and all those involved with this fundraising.
