Parents in the Classroom

Parents are always welcomed as helpers both in the classroom and out of it and will be directed to appropriate tasks by the class teacher. Please note agreement is to be signed by each regular parent helper to ensure confidentiality. If you would like more information please speak to a member of the Senior Management Team.

 
Lunchroom


 

We operate a lunch service on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays; this is operated by an independent contractor (Stacey Johnson), and adheres to the Healthy Eating Guidelines introduced by the Ministries of Health and Education in 2008.  Lunches are pre-ordered.  Please use an envelope on which to write the child’s name, room number, and order; place the cash inside, seal, ask your child to  “post” it in the mailbox by the hall before 9.00am.  Lunches are delivered to classrooms just before lunchtime.  No credit or “casual” purchasing is allowed.  A full menu with prices is available from the Office or click here.


Healthy Food Guidelines at Riverview School
After consulting the community and working to adhere to the information coming to us from the Ministries of Education and Health we now have healthy food guidelines in place. Please click here to read more about the guidelines.

Stationery

A list of the required stationery will be given at enrolment, or at the beginning of the school year. At the beginning of each year the school will provide a stationery sales service to parents/caregivers, to allow them to purchase pre-packed stationery for their child/ren. We recommend this option. These pre-packed boxes will contain the stationery your child will need. Stationery is purchased in bulk at the start of the school year, and the discounts gained are passed on in the price charged to the children. Please name all items.

Purchase of Stationery pre-packs can be made at the school office:

Parent Contribution 

This is a voluntary contribution, which the Board of Trustees strongly urges all families to make to the school.  As we are a Decile 7 school, the Operations Grant made by the Government does not fully cover resources such as new library books, art and craft supplies, sports equipment, and photocopying.  As the voluntary contribution is classed as a tax-deductible donation, a receipt will be issued.  The voluntary contribution is $180 per year for one child, $340 for two children, or $500 for three or more children.  This can be paid either in one payment, or term by term, or month by month.   

We accept payment by EFTPOS, cash, cheque, or internet banking (Bank Account: 12-3091-0132140-00 [include child’s name & year level (e.g. J Smith Y5)]).  For children starting part-way through the year, the donation will be reduced proportionately.  

If you wish to discuss this donation in more detail, please contact the Principal or one of the Board of Trustees.

Lost Property

Please clearly name all your children’s clothing; it is only lost if it is not named.  All misplaced clothing is held on a rack outside Room 4 (and locked away at night).  All unclaimed lost property is regularly sent to the local opportunity shop, or sold at the Bazaar in Term 3.
