We would like to say a huge "thank you" to everyone for donating and taking part. The event raised a lot of money for the school.
The endless commitment and enthusiasm of our wonderful PTA meant that were able to purchase 30 new iPads for the children to use. There will always be an important place in the classroom for pen and paper, but it is reassuring to know that Riverhead Infants' is keeping up to date with the latest technology giving the children a wonderful start to a “well rounded” education.
The Riverhead Carnival
Thank you to everyone who helped at the Riverhead Carnival. The combined Riverhead and Amherst stall raised an amazing £687 which was shared between both schools.
Our Wonderful PTA
Thank you to our wonderful PTA who purchased a license for every child in the school to access the Collins Big Cat E-books online library during lockdown. Class teachers allocated two books each week according to the child's colour band. The resource was a great addition to the home learning and benefitted the children enormously.
The PTA also donated money for the new books in the classrooms. Again, every child benefitted from these lovely books.
