At Alphab-eats we enjoy making healthy foods fun to attract the children’s attention. We offer children a well-balanced menu with healthy snacks that show children eating nutritional meals can also be fun and appetising.

The canteen is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for recess and lunch.

Food Items

Riverside Primary School is a NUT FREE SCHOOL.  We therefore request, that all students DO NOT bring peanut butter sandwiches or any items that contain nut ingredients to school.  In most cases the labels on foods will indicate the presence of nuts.  Please contact the school office for information.

We encourage children to bring water only in their drink bottles.

All classes have a fruit break at approximately 10.00am.  Please pack a piece of fresh fruit to enjoy at this time.

The Riverside Primary School Association

Our School Association consists of parents, staff, community members and our Principal.  Our purpose is to build partnerships within the school community, centring on issues that are aimed at making your child’s school experience a happy and safe one and enabling parents to feel comfortable with having input into their child’s education.

All schools are required to have a School Association as they are referred to in legislation.  In addition to being responsible for approving the school’s budget, strategic plan and ratifying policies, the School Association also relies on its volunteers to run the uniform shop, school banking and numerous fundraisers throughout the year.

We generally meet once a month on Mondays at 7:30pm; dates for these are advertised in the school newsletter.

The association is an important means for parents to have a voice in our school and we welcome your involvement.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

The Uniform Shop

The Riverside Primary School uniform shop stock all your school uniform needs and is open Monday mornings 8.45 – 10.45am during school terms.  Outside of these opening hours, uniform orders can be left at the school office.

Please note:  days and times will sometimes vary; these changes will be advised through the school newsletter.

The uniform shop accepts cash, cheques and eftpos payments.

For further queries, please email or contact the school office on 63273731.
