We as a Staff have discussed and decided that there will be no RVS Talent Quest this year. There are several reasons for this.
The first reason is that many of the opportunities a Talent Quest affords are now being offered in other forums within the school. Some examples of these include Zest Media, the Music Academy (TEMPO and Music Assemblies), the development of the Kidz Shed, the Learning Extension Group (LEGS), growth of the RVS Sports Academy, ZEST and the soon to be released Honours Programme. This aligns with the philosophy of the school, whereby more and more of the individual talents and gifts of our students are being recognised, endorsed and bolstered through our classroom programmes every day, rather than just one-off events.
The second reason is the opportunity being provided through our Proprietor, Elim Christian Centre Blenheim on the 30th of July. This is an event students and parents of RVS are most welcome to enter. More information on this will be given soon and the school contact for this is Jane Fransen.
