AGM 2021


Message from the Chair of Friends Of Riverside School

Dear Parents/guardians,

Friends of Riverside are continuing to meet virtually and talk about ways of fund raising for Riverside School and giving back to our children.

This Christmas we wanted to make sure every child at Riverside has a present to open on Christmas Day. We have been out shopping and have purchased a small gift for every child. We want you to know that these gifts have sat for more than 72 hours and will be distributed to classes in a safe way (hopefully this Thursday) in line with government regulations and school policy.

We have been talking to Santa and he has a special message for everyone which will be shown on the school Facebook page on Wednesday. We hope everyone is keeping well and we wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas.

Christmas wishes,

Samantha Creighton
Vice Chair of Friends of Riverside PTA
