Dr. Maria Montessori said, “We are the sowers – our children are those who reap. We labor so that future generations will be better and nobler than we are.”

In order to continue to develop and enhance the extensive programming at River Valley School, we are asking you to take part in its growth. With visionary leadership, a talented and committed teaching staff and the energy of our valued volunteers, RVS is on an exciting journey and we need you to come with us!

Currently at an enrolment of 311 students, tuition costs account for only 59% of our annual revenues. Of our remaining income, 25% is derived from government funding and 7% from sponsorships and donations. This 7% is where you come in! While the percentage may seem small, in 2014/15 this amounted to over $400,000. With government funding for private education declining, this percentage will increase and as a not for profit charitable organization, we are relying on your support to ensure that our students continue to experience an education that surpasses that which they would receive elsewhere.

Please contribute today. You will be making an important investment in the programs, projects and students at River Valley School.

Thank you,
Erin Corbett, Head of School
