Our School History →


"Our education is based on sound traditional values, servant leadership and a collaborative effort that embraces a love of learning in a diverse and real world environment."


Rivonia Primary education's core business is that of academics. We offer a progressive CAPS based curriculum, enhanced, enriched and innovated by the latest developments in technology.

Our students are encouraged to pursue excellence in all aspects of their academic, sporting and cultural experience at the school, and have gone on to represent us proudly with outstanding results in their high school careers.

Our education is based on sound traditional values, servant leadership and a collaborative effort that embraces a love of learning in a diverse and real world environment.


Rivonia Primary students are encouraged to participate in a comprehensive and inclusive range of activities offered on both a competitive and non-competitive level.

Our objective is that our students, through these opportunities, are balanced and not solely focused in one area of development.

Rivonia Primary believes that sport plays a major role in building long term personal and social values necessary to achieve success.

Arts and Culture

The drama department is now known as Musical Theatre. It offers the choice of the three disciplines: singing, dancing and acting, and the children either specialize in one of their choice or participate in all three.

Environmental And Social Awareness

"Our learners are encouraged to appreciate the diversity and challenges faced daily in our society, and the world at large"
