Chemistry Students at RIA came in early on Thursday morning (although their teachers keep telling them that 6:00 am is not that early) to help celebrate Mole Day. Students hit the kitchen and did their now annual Mole Day baking. They had a great morning and are keeping this new tradition alive and well!!!
Random Island Academy, in partnership with the PBLLC Recreation Association, will be hosting a fall fair at the school on Saturday, Nov. 22. If you are interested in booking a table, please call Sandy at the school or contact Penny Currie.
Work is currently underway on a multi-sportsplex area behind our school. The Walking group partnered with the school to access a grant from Eastern Health which is being used to build a multi-sport green space on the grounds of the school. A big “THANK YOU!” goes out to Eastern Health, Random East Walking group members, and of course the many volunteers who have contributed to this project.
Random Island Academy’s student council members have been busy once again. This time they took on Jamarama Day in support of the Children’s Wish Foundation. Students could make a $2.00 donation and wear their PJ’s to school. As part of the organization, students Katelyn Butt, Amber Hart, and Damian Marsh visited classes to let students know about the event. Congrats to all who took part and to those who donated!!
Over 100 from around the district descended on Random Island Academy for a cross country race on Thursday afternoon. While students got a little damp in the rain, the weather was warm and the course was ideal for running. Thank you to all parents and volunteers who helped out to make this another successful event for our school.
Congratulations to our Senior Girls Volleyball team on winning Silver Medals this past weekend!
This past weekend our Senior Girls hosted a 5 team invitational tournament at our school. There were two teams from Tricentia Academy, a team from Discovery Collegiate, a team from Clarenville High school, and our host team. Our girls went 3-1 in round robin play only losing to the eventual gold medalists from Tricentia Academy. RIA then went on to beat Clarenville in the semi-final while Tricentia defeated Discovery. It was a hard fought championship game but our girls fell short in the final. RIA played hard all weekend and it was a great showing for their first tournament of the year. Great job girls! A big thank you goes out to all the parents and volunteers for all your work this weekend; also, a big thank you goes to Mrs. Smith for all your time and effort that went into coaching and organizing this weekend’s event!

This year we are having a Survivor theme. On Monday each grade must choose a survivor team name and design a flag to put on their door. Each grade is assigned a specific team colour, and this colour can be worn on any day during the week. If someone does not have anything that suits a day, they can wear their team colour and still get counted for participation points. This is always a backup!
