Shortly afterward, we invited the Road Safety Officer from Swindon Borough Council who showed a hard hitting video and gave valuable and potentially life-saving advice on road safety.
Gail McVicar from Swindon Gay Pride also came into school and she gave an informative and interesting talk to KS4 pupils on gender issues. The talk was well received by all.
The last visitor of the year was the Mayor of Swindon, who arrived in a chauffeur driven limousine adorned in all his mayoral regalia. The pupils presented him with a cake for his birthday and sang a heart-warming rendering of, ‘Happy Birthday Mr. Mayor’. Mr. Mayor left clutching his cupcake in the back of his limousine! The Mayor was so impressed by Riverside pupils, that Year 11 have been invited to join him for tea in the Mayor’s Parlour after Christmas.
