Principal’s Message

Mdm Choy Photo New.jpegA very warm welcome to River Valley High School!

The River Valley High education and experience is an enriching and exciting one. As a Special Assistance Plan (SAP) and Autonomous Status (AS) school that offers a 6-year Integrated Programme, we provide a holistic education that is academically robust, with a strong focus on character development, strengthening resilience and well-being. During their time with us, our students will develop dispositions, skills, values and knowledge that will help them flourish both in school and in the world beyond school.

Our RV Integrated Programme (RV IP) offers a balanced education curriculum that develops every student's interests and talents across the areas of academics, CCA and leadership. It focuses on nurturing our students’ curiosity, passion and joy for learning, engaging them with interesting and intellectually stimulating lessons and learning experiences. At RVHS, we believe that learning must come alive for our students, where they are continually provided with authentic learning experiences. Students apply critical and innovative thinking through meaningful and purposeful learning projects both within the school as well as in the community. Most notably, our Construct, Integrate, Differentiate (CID) curriculum empowers our secondary students to be empathetic, innovative and critical thinkers who are interested in understanding and solving real-world problems.


We believe strongly that our students have the capacity and potential for leadership and through our various student development programmes, our students will develop into strong leaders with integrity and honour, compassion and kindness, the heart of service and desire to be positive change-makers. These include the Personal Leadership Programme, Values-in-Action Programme, RV Model United Nation (RVMUN) and Youth. Leverage Educate Actuate Develop (Y.LEAD),our annual leadership seminar. Our bicultural learning environment also provides our students with the fluency and skills to understand, appreciate and navigate the different cultural contexts, and regional and global perspectives.

Our RVians embody the 立化 spirit by not just doing well, but also doing good by contributing back to society as leaders in their own right. This is the essence of what it means to be an RVian, a 立化人 – one who is humble to learn yet confident in the self, rooted in tradition and heritage while constantly seeking to innovate, and proactively pursuing their dreams while staying resilient to challenges. The nurturing of the 立化人 is made possible by a strong RV culture – one where there is a strong sense of school belonging, trust and connectedness, and where lifelong friendships are forged. This is an RV home of hope and joy made possible by a caring community of dedicated staff, passionate alumni, and supportive parents and partners.

We look forward to celebrating RV 66 and beyond!

立化的综合课程致力于推展心智合一的全人教育,通过我校的“均衡教育课程”让学生在个别领域,如学研中心、课程辅助活动以及领导方面发挥所长,拓展兴趣与潜力。课程也提供实况学习空间,激发学生的好奇心、学习热情,感受学习乐趣,能学以致用。不论是学校或社区活动,学生皆能发挥慎思明辨,创新求异的精神。学生批判性思维能力的体现有赖于我校旗舰课程——“格物致知课程”(CID)。通过“格物致知学习法”,学生掌握良好与正确的学习态度、思维技能和整合构建知识的能力,解决生活问题、探讨世界课题。

我们坚信,立化学生具备领导能力和潜力。通过我校的各项学生领袖品格拓展与能力培训课程,如:个人领导能力培训课程、“德育在于行动(VIA)”、立化模拟联合国大会 (RVMUN)、青年领袖研讨会(Y.LEAD)以及常年领袖研讨会等,学生茁壮成长,具备诚信正直、同情心、同理心,并积极成为行动者,为社会为国家谋福利。立化身为一所特选中学,富有浓郁的双文化学习氛围,让学生能欣赏双文化的不同与魅力,驾驭跨文化交流技能,促进对跨文化的理解,在不同文化领域中游刃有余。

立化一向秉持着为国家为社会服务的大我精神。立化人谦恭自信,勇于追梦;根植传统但懂得创新求异,虽面对挑战仍坚韧不屈。立化是一个温暖的大家庭,立化学子在六年的学习生涯中建立了深厚的友谊,也已身为立化人为荣。立化人对母校有很强的归属感和荣誉感,时时关心母校发展,体现出浓浓的立化情感。

立化的成功归功于敬业的教职员对学生的悉心栽培、校友对母校的关心、家长和合作伙伴的支持。

祝愿立化继续“与日月争光兮,与天地共久长”。

期待立化66!
