About our School

Learning to learn, learning to live

At Riverlands we believe:

  • Children should acquire excellence in Literacy and Numeracy skills at or above their chronological age.
  • Children should be exposed to a wide variety of activities and be encouraged to have a go and to develop the confidence to succeed.
  • Our school has a family friendly atmosphere.
  • As parents and caregivers you are a valuable part of School. We welcome your involvement in our school and look forward to developing a strong partnership with you, where we all work together to make your child’s schooling a positive experience. Helping support your child's learning by building a good relationship with your child's teacher, finding out how your child is going and working together to support their learning is important at School.

The School has a supportive Board of Trustees, an active Parent Support Group (Friends Of The School, FOTS), enthusiastic and capable staff and we look forward to working with you in our unique environment.
