What does the School Council and Riverdale Educational Fundraising Society do at Riverdale School?


The School Council and Educational Fundraising Society is made up of all parents of Riverdale School, with a small but dedicated working group of volunteers who make up the board.

School Council and the Educational Fundraising Society works to provide support - both through volunteers and finances - to improve the education and community provided at Riverdale School.

School Council and the Educational Fundraising Society hosts fundraisers in order to be able to provide this support.

Some of the things offered by means of their support include:

  • Events
    • Welcome BBQ, Harvest Soup Day, Christmas Event, Book Fair, Family Dance, End of Year Fun Day
  • Classroom supplies
    • Classroom libraries, learning tools
  • Library supplies
    • Books, displays
  • Music supplies
    • Instruments
  • Technology
    • iPads, chromebooks, smartboards in all classrooms
  • Field trips – out of school & in school
  • Artist in Residence
  • Physical education activities

Due to this support, the school fees at Riverdale are very minimal, yet our children have access to everything they need to be successful students, and to experience many educational enrichment opportunities.

Please consider volunteering time to one of the events or attending a monthly meeting! Your contributions and involvement are very much appreciated.
