Over $875 was raised and more than 600 cup cakes were donated.

Mrs Schwass our Jump Jam coordinator is extremely happy as it means she can purchase the new Jump Jam DVD with updated routines for all the children to enjoy.

‘Church on the Hill’ Carpark Now Closed

For many years Richmond School parents/whānau/staff have been very fortunate the Trinity ‘Church on the Hill’ allowed us to use their carpark before school and after school. People can appreciate this is private property.

The church has made the decision, in consultation with the Richmond School Board of Trustees, that this is no longer a viable option due to the large numbers of cars in the carpark area along with the foot traffic at busy times (before school and after school). Recently there have been a number of ‘close calls’ involving children. Pedestrian safety in this area is paramount.

From Monday 7th August 2017 onwards the Richmond School parents/whānau/staff will NOT be able to use the carpark before school and at the end of the school day. Please respect the church’s decision (one the Richmond School Board supports).
