Riva Revue

Friday 1st December 2023

What is it?

The Riva Revue is our Open Night and Concert all in one, and celebrates the amazing achievement and work of our students during this year at Riva Primary School.

Who is it for?

Riva Revue is for all students in Pre-primary to Year 6. Kindergarten students, due to sharing classrooms, are preparing their own open days and performances, and have scheduled these. All families and students are of course welcome to come in on the “main” day, of Friday 1st December 2023.

Open Classrooms – all students PP – Year 6, from 4.00pm – 5.00pm

Our classrooms are open. During this time, please accompany your child/ren to their classroom, where they will show you their work from throughout the year, maybe engage you in a favourite activity, challenge you to a game, or together, create something. Look, discover, learn and celebrate their year. You may stay for as little or as long as you like, but be sure to leave enough time, as the classroom doors need to close at 5.00pm, to get ready for the Concert. During this time, head down to the oval, for students to join their class group, and parents and friends to find a good viewing spot.

In addition to visiting your child’s classroom, come for a browse at:

  • The gallery of student art on display in our Art Room (Blue Block);
  • The amazing Science projects and work on display in the Science Lab (Blue Block).. and
  • Have a go with some of our skill and game sessions, with our Health and Physical Education specialist, Mr Batt – look for the set-up on the grassed area beside the library.


Community Concert – featuring performances from all PP – Year 6 students.

Students need to be on the oval (Novelli Reserve) seated in their classroom groups and ready for the concert to start at 5.15pm. The classroom seating will be marked, and staff will assist in guiding.

Parents, families, friends and community find a spot near the Riva PS Amphitheatre, and pull up a rug, picnic blanket, or some camping chairs, and get ready for the Concert (it’s bring your own seats). The map shows the designated areas for seating (all BYO), with the area at the front reserved for those on rugs/ blankets / ground, and then those bringing chairs to sit behind.

From 5.15pm, it’s all eyes on stage.
