The Riverside Private School family is expanding as they welcome three capable teachers to their school community. Vera Hirle, John-Michael Richter and Alet Schrader all hail from different schools but according to principal Ernest Olivier, they fit in seamlessly at Riverside.
Hirle was previously the principal of Windhoek High School and Schrader once worked alongside Olivier at Namib High School in Swakopmund.
These three teachers will take part in all the exciting events Riverside hopes to offer during the course of 2021.
Schrader’s line of expertise will be the first as Riverside hosts its science fair on 28 June this year.
It’s not all science at Riverside as the annual English Day and Spelling Bee prove that those who prefer words to experiments will also have their time to shine.
All learners from grades two to 10 will have their chance to take part in the Riverside spelling bee on 15 July this year.
It is tradition in many schools across the country to wait with bated breath for the wonderful ideas that the entrepreneurial minds of the school can come up with and Riverside is no exception. Learners can expect to enjoy the best Riverside’s entrepreneurs have to offer on 9 September, roughly a week after schools reopen for the third term.
Riverside rings in the month of October in style this year as their ever-popular Neon Night Fun Run will be hosted on 1 October. “We have changed the route a little and we hope to have some stalls so people don’t just disappear after finishing the run,” Olivier said.
