Helping Riverlights shine
At Greater Bank, we’re customer-owned, which means we genuinely care about strengthening the communities we call home. That's why we're proud to be Major Sponsor of Maitland Riverlights Festival, helping local schools light up the Levee like never before!
We asked teachers, kids and parents to get involved and submit their school's best lantern for a chance to walk away with $1,000!
How it worked
Schools were provided with info packs and materials to build a lantern which represented multiple cultures and their school community
Schools then took a snap of the lantern they chose to represent their school as part of the competition. The lantern had to depict the cultural elements that made their school greater, and had to be in the multicultural spirit of Riverlights.
Schools uploaded their school's lantern pic below, and told us a little bit about their lantern, as well as who they are. Our winning schools were Hunter River Community School, Iona Public School and Maitland Public School. Congratulations, guys!
Riverlights is a diverse and colourful celebration of culture through interactive stalls, dance, food, music and arts, and at Greater Bank, we're proud to help bring the Riverlights Festival to life as Major Event Sponsor in 2018.
Riverlights really shines at night, with the popular festival parade and magical lantern flotilla featured on the Hunter River; an unforgettable family experience. Find out more about what to expect from this year's festival via their website below.
