Auckland has now joined the rest of NZ at Alert Level 1.

At Alert Level 1 school operates as normal. We do our best to keep everyone safe and well by:

  • promoting personal space

  • encouraging frequent hand washing

  • asking families to keep any children with cold/flu type symptoms at home

Parents are welcome on school grounds during Alert Level 1.

We are really hoping that Term 4 will be a complete term of at school learning.

Thank you Riverhills whanau. Be safe. Be kind.

Hygiene @ School

We are spending time making sure that all children at school know the correct technique for hand-washing.

All of our classes are watching this short video as part of their learning, and some students have taken up the challenge to make their own video about how to wash you hands to prevent the spread of germs.

Grandparents Day

Thank you to all of our wonderful grandparents who came along and shared stories with our tamariki.

Te Tuhi Art Gallery Trips

All of our classes went to visit Te Tuhi Art Gallery during March. They took part in an educator led session 'Stories of the Pacific', which focused on how artists tell their stories through symbols. After viewing some examples our students were guided through the process of creating their own tapa cloth stories.
