    What a fantastic Sports Day last week!
    The vibe was lively - music, enthusiastic students, parents cheering, staff encouraging and the smell of delicious Lions Club sausages wafting across the oval!
    Students and staff proudly wore river colours adding to the vibrancy of the day. A big thank you to the Lions Club for cooking sausages and providing icy cold drinks. Rory’s School lunches also provided food, drinks and ice creams for everyone. A huge thank you to staff, students and parents who helped make the day a success.
    Congratulations to Gawler River for being the overall winners of our second sports day at Riverbanks College.

    Jess Warmington I just filled this online form out.

    Missed this! Great... what's the vaccine for???

    I have not received any information about this at all any my son gets quite anxious about needles. Riverbanks College B-12 I only happened to log onto FB to find out about this - emails really need to be sent out not using social media.

    Very disappointing Was this the only way parents/caregivers were informed? If so poor communication.
