Is it true you won't take a child if you're not physically living in a house in the zone, what if you've got a block of land and waiting for the builders to commence building and currently not living in the zone.

We are thrilled to share the incredible success of our EALD Family Fun Day that wrapped up Term 1!

This event was a wonderful opportunity for families to connect, learn, and enjoy a variety of activities. Thanks to the invaluable contributions from representatives of Playford Communities for Children, SETS and Family Connect Program, Financial Counselling and Emergency Assistance, Community Connexions from Anglicare SA, Newly Arrived Youth Service from AnglicareSA, New and Emerging Communities Program from Uniting Communities, STARRS and the community liaison officers from the Department for Education the afternoon was not only fun but also incredibly informative.

Each organisation provided unique insights and support, making it a truly enriching experience for everyone involved. We can't wait to host more events like this, bringing our community together to learn, grow, and celebrate our diverse cultures.

Towards the end of last term, our Year 6 students had a blast at the West Lakes Aquatics Centre! 🌊

Despite the cooler weather, their enthusiasm for sailing, canoeing, kayaking, and surfing was off the charts! But it wasn't just about fun; they also learned crucial water safety skills like W.E.T.T.T. - Weather, Equipment, Together, Tell, Time - ensuring they stay safe during outdoor water activities. 🚀

Is there any chance of having the morning time extended slightly (8.50) so that the preschool families can come and have a look too? Otherwise that’s a long time for the children to wait before preschool opens. In the afternoon the preschool parents try to get away before school finishes so there is room for school parents to park.

Preschool families are more than welcome to come in up until this time and take a look and / or purchase educational resources... We look forward to seeing you in week 2 πŸ™‚ It will be an exciting time at Riverbanks College B-12
