Composed in 2013, 立化情 is a song written by Neo Ling Wei Nicholine (Class of 2013) to welcome the new batch of Year 1 freshmen into the RV family. The 35th Student Council decided to leverage on this heartfelt song and came up with the music video production with the intention of bonding the RV family, for the alumni to reminisce the memories we had in RV, and for RVians, past and present, to be proud to be an RVian. 
 
立化情 tells the RV story, an experience unique to RVians. From the perspective of one who was about to complete her journey in RV, reminiscence flows; the friendships forged, memories written and the times spent with fellow peers, things close to our hearts, are common for all yet unique to each individual.

Through this, we hope to build a stronger sense of pride for the school, for all generations of RVians to treasure the friendships forged, our memories and the times that we have spent in RV, 似水流年用难忘,地久天长立化情.

立化情 ♦ 作词作曲:梁伶蔚

回想一起度过的时光
梦想飞翔
成长在立化的土壤
创造了希望
求学之道并不容易
一起努力
因为有了你
创造美好回忆
在立化我不孤单
酸甜苦辣朋友陪伴
立化情是那么地灿烂
在未来记忆相伴
在立化我不孤单
酸甜苦辣朋友陪伴
立化情是那么地灿烂
就在未来记忆相伴
如今追逐各自的理想
不再迷茫
未来的路就在前方
不害怕 不紧张
感怀那些年的努力
庆幸有你
与我同悲喜
让我充满勇气
在立化我不孤单
酸甜苦辣朋友陪伴
立化情是那么地灿烂
在未来记忆相伴
从立化我们扬帆
草木青青海云缦缦
立化情是那么地温暖
这份友情千金不换


青春彼岸

As River Valley High School prepared to celebrate her 60th birthday, a group of young men and women decided to celebrate their fond memories of the school with a song. Titled '青春彼岸' (Qing Chun Bi An), the song was an expression of gratitude to the school as well as a wistful glance at the carefree days of being an RVian in years gone by.

It all started with a string of Alumni events, from an anniversary  dinner in November 2014 to a mass sing-a-long session in April  2015, which allowed us to gather a group of local musical talents  who were RV Alumni. The teacher representative (Mr Yeo Chengrong) then  suggested that the group could produce an original song together.  The song could build on RV’s foundation as a pioneer of the xinyao  movement in Singapore, and it would be an appropriate present to  the school during its 60th anniversary. That idea quickly took hold  and before long, the prototype was produced in December 2015  with the combined song-writing talent of Regine Han and Bevlyn  Khoo. A choir of singers was assembled – Regine Han, Bevlyn Khoo,  Jiu Jian, Edric Hsu, Tay Sia Yeun and Yeo Chengrong. 

During the RV60  celebration dinner, young alumnus Nicholine Neo served as guitarist  and current student, Cai Yu Han was the keyboardist. It was indeed an  apt reflection of the RV spirit of '携手共进' , and a salutation to strong  bonds forged across batches of RVians, drawing much applause  and cheers from the guests that included past principals, teachers  and students along with the guest-of-honour, Acting Minister for  Education (Schools) Mr Ng Chee Meng. 

'青春彼岸' indeed captures the essence of the RV spirit, an  enduring quality that has distinguished the school for the last 60 years!
