Kia Ora RVS Community,
There have been a lot of exciting changes happening around the school that are reflective of the hard work that has been operating behind the scenes for some time now.
I'm sure a number of you will have noticed the two new pod buildings that we now have situated outside the school Library. These pods are being used for two purposes:
We have laid down some green matting and will furnish the space with some tables in order that this may be used as a Year 7 - 9 space, as well as an outdoor area for library users.
YEAR 9 CLASSROOM
The new Year 9 classroom has received code of compliance and is now being fully utilised by our Year 9 students. Feedback from students and teachers has been overwhelmingly positive - they love their new space! We thank our proprietors, Elim for their work over the Christmas break to have it finished in good time.
I HAVE MOVED!
I have moved my office from the main building to the Library. This is to allow for construction to take place in the old office, with walls being moved to provide space for a New Entrant classroom. This classroom will be opened mid-year to allow for growth at the junior end of the school, which is very exciting.
The next large building to be constructed is a large double-classroom and it will include changing rooms and toilets. This is going to be situated in front of the current Year 9 classroom towards the eastern side of the school. Construction is set to commence mid-year and is expected to be completed by the end of this year. This classroom will house next year's Year 9 and Year 10 students. There will be more information regarding the layout of the Middle & Senior School soon.
We plan to have the next round of consultation regarding uniform out within the next few weeks. We have made good progress with the Middle/Snr (Y7-13) uniform colours and styles and will be consulting on Junior School (Y0-6) styles and options. This is not a process that the Board of Trustees can rush because of its impact and complexity. We will have a uniform that looks good, is comfortable, hard-wearing, affordable and accessible by the end of the process. Thank you for your patience and feedback to date.
May God continue to bless the families of RVS as the year moves forward. May He continue to build this house, Psalm 127.
Proud Principal of Richmond View School.
