Riverside College breaks ground

BREAKING GROUND: Celebrating the start of construction of the new building at the Riverside College in Burgundy Estate, Plattekloof.

Construction has started on the new school building at Riverside College in Burgundy Estate, Plattekloof, and work is expected to be complete in 2018.

The ground-breaking event was attended by pupils, staff, school dignitaries and visitors.

“With several new developments under construction on Burgundy Estate and about 2 500 residential opportunities predicted to be rolled out over the next decade, construction of the new school premises is well timed,” says founder and director of Riverside College, Elana Edwards.

“Beyond quality private school tuition, our new school premises will provide ample ground to cater for all of our sporting and extra mural activities. We aim to accommodate between 800 and 1 200 pupils in the pre-primary, primary and high schools.”

Established in 2006, Riverside College’s holistic approach to education and its dedicated core of teachers has resulted in the school increasing pupil numbers in recognition. The school has achieved a 100% matric pass rate since the first group of matriculants wrote exams in 2013 and a number of pupils have received academic and sporting accolades.

“Children are our future. Our pupils should be able to explore all possibilities and opportunities to ensure they have the best learning experience. The new school, the first of a chain of schools, will give them this opportunity, and in line with environmental awareness, the school will be built using green building practices,” Edwards says.
