On Friday 8th September Riverton Primary School staff joined colleagues from the Lower Mid North B-12 Partnership for a day’s professional learning. The topic of the day was ‘Building and Developing Visible Learners’.
This year has seen Visible Learning become a focus for all Staff and Children. Staff have undertaken professional learning in Foundation Day and Feedback Focus. Our Philosophy Statement embeds Mindframes into our Educator practice. Staff view quality teaching as integral to raising outcomes of learning for all children.
It was their squeals of laughter and animated conversation that drew me near. The children were mixing the soil and water, carting it from one side of the path to the other using the wheel barrows. On the surface it was just a group of children having fun. But their learning was much deeper and richer today because of the Nature Play offered at Balaklava Community Children’s Centre.
In 2017, we have sixteen students from Riverton, Burra, Eudunda and Balaklava participating in a Certificate II program, run through the Elizabeth TAFE. The lecturer travels to the high school each Monday to deliver the program, using the facilities of the RDHS Trade Training Centre.
On Friday March 17th, Riverton & District High School held their annual Presentation Ball. The Ball is for year 12 students to dress up in formal attire and be presented to fellow students, family and the community. The theme for this year’s presentation ball was Red & White.
RDHS competed in the Interschool Swimming competition held at Clare in Term 1, after our own swimming carnival. With a team of just 30 compared to other schools, Burra, Eudunda, Clare, Balaklava and Horizon, (some had nearly 50 students participating) we did an excellent job and filled almost every event.
As part of the transition from Primary School to High School, it is important for students to get to know their Home Group teachers and Coordinator well. We do this by having a Year 8 day where we spend the day together and do some getting to know you activities and work together in groups/pairs.
Congratulations to Jaden Burns (Year 12) on receiving a Highly Commended Award for her entry in the 2016 ABC Heywire competition.
