Riverside Secondary School
Grade 8 Shadow Days at RSS
On December 12th  and 13th, Riverside S.S. held its annual Grade 8 Shadow Days.  Students from Eastwood, Forest Glade, Parkview, Hetherington, Princess Elizabeth and Dr. D. Suzuki visited the school to get a taste of what things will be like next September when they become Riverside students.  The day started off with a tour of the school and the many classes we have to offer at Riverside.  The students were then treated to a delicious lunch in the cafeteria and then spent some time seeing what “Lunch-time” at RSS is all about.  During period 3, students were able to join a class and get a feel of what it will be like sitting in that desk next year.  At the end of the visit, the grade 11 Leadership and Peer Support Class held a Spirit assembly for the Grade 8 students with a video from Grade 9 Day. The Leadership students were the tour guides for our Grade 8 students for the both days and we appreciate their assistance and showing their Rebel Spirit.  All Grade 8 students also received a Rebel lanyard and a #RebelNation t-shirt.  Special thanks to Mr. Rankin and his Leadership class, Mr. Parungao our student success teacher, Mr. Piskovic our guidance Head, Mrs. Cooney our Guidance Secretary, Fernanda and our fantastic Cafeteria staff and our principal, Ms. Edwards for making this event possible.​
