River Valley Primary School is located 20 kms north of Bunbury and caters for 70 students.
River Valley Primary School is proud to be an Independent Public School in 2015.
It has a purpose built Kindy/ Pre Primary centre in the main building. Our specialized team of early childhood teachers and education assistants provide innovative and engaging programs integrating the Early Years Learning Framework with the Western Australian Curriculum. The school has a strong focus on literacy and numeracy and early intervention and extension for identified students.
Our positive and challenging teaching programs allow all students to develop the necessary knowledge and skills to become confident independent learners. Multi aged grouping is a feature of the school allowing for extension and remediation for students. We offer a diverse range of subjects including music, visual arts, physical education and Indonesian which are taught by specialist teachers. River Valley students consistently earn entrance into Bunbury Senior High School and Australind Senior High School's academic and arts extension programs.
The Bluearth Program is embedded in our school and promotes cooperation and teamwork among students.
Staff and students participate in a 'Positive Behaviour Program'. Recognition is given to those who display Excellence, Responsibility, Respect and Care inside and outside the classroom.
Students are taught in modern classrooms. Pre primary and Kindy students have their own outdoor play area. Students have access to the community oval and tennis courts and basketball courts.
The school is fully air-conditioned, providing a pleasant learning environment all year round.
The school opened in 1999 as a result of the amalgamation of the former Roelands Primary School (est. 1903) and Burekup Primary School (est. 1913). The school has maintained its rural background and has a strong sense of community and community involvement. Set near the Ferguson Valley in a unique rural setting, on the South West Highway makes it a desirable location to live.
Students, staff and the community embrace the school ethos of 'Learning for Life Together'.
