Information for New Primary 1 Parents

Last Thursday, 7th June, we held two induction meetings for parents with children starting in Primary 1, at Riverbank, after the summer holidays. During these two sessions we showed a PowerPoint which had useful information and dates to remember included in it. I have been asked to display the information on the website. Unfortunately, the file is too large to place on the website so I have cherry-picked the most important information and listed it below.
