(29 March 2017) Healthy Meals in School Programme (HMSP)

The Health Promotion Board (HPB) has been working closely with schools to promote healthy eating among pupils as part of the holistic development of our children. Since the start of Term II, our school has implemented the HMSP. The food stallholders are selling set meals which include food in the four main groups, i.e. wholegrains, fruit, vegetables and meat (or others). We would like to seek parents’ assistance to encourage your children to eat the vegetables and fruits that come with the set meal. The circular from HPB provides more information. 

(20 March 2017) Welcome and Introduction
We warmly welcome the whole school community back for Term II! The term ahead of us promises to be rich with learning and growth. We are pleased to introduce Mdm Lalithaa Kanesan, our new teacher who has many years of teaching experience. We also welcome Mrs Jaslyn Choo and Mdm Norazah Ibrahim back to Team Riverside!

(20 March 2017) Midday Snack Break

The school has implemented the midday snack break since 9 January 2017. Riverians clearly appreciate and enjoy the snack break as it helps them to sustain their energy level till the end of the school day. Parents are reminded to prepare healthy snacks which are easy for their child to manage during the 10-minute snack break in the classroom. It would be helpful for pupils to have wet wipes with them to clean up after the snack break.

Applied Learning Programme - PlayWorks @ Riverside

PlayWorks is Riverside's original curriculum innovation and Applied Learning Programme to nurture Critical and Inventive Thinking in our Joyful and Productive Learners. PlayWorks engages our Riverians in critical and inventive thinking and collaborative problem solving, using different design materials and tools. There is a signature module at every grade level. Our Riverians also nurture values and build character through their involvement in PlayWorks.
The PlayWorks protocol has five inventive processes (Understand, Plan, Design, Build and Improvise) and three essential processes (Communication, Collaboration and Reflection). The "Sparkling with Character in Purposeful Play" framework spells out the behavioural expectations based on the school's SPARKLE Values. For example, Riverians are expected to demonstrate Perseverance by never giving up and Adaptability by being open-minded and flexible when engaged in PlayWorks.
