It’s an exciting year for Riverside Private School, formerly known as Swakopmund School of Excellence.

According to the principal, Mr Ernst Olivier, their focus for this year is to develop a new school logo, uniform and prospectus.

Currently, the private school accommodates 170 learners from grade 0 to 8, along with 16 teachers, two secretaries and three institutional workers.

“Thus far we’ve hosted a Civvies Day once a month, as a means to raise funds for the school. We hosted our Big Walk in May, parent evenings for the various grades, Day of the African Child, as well as a Read-a-Thon in June, where the learners dressed up as their favourite book characters.”

Riverside will be hosting a fun run on 7 September in Swakopmund and is calling on the entire coastal community to join in on the fun.

“We will also be hosting a sports day on 18 October as a fundraiser for the school.”

Olivier says they will be adding grade 9 to the school next year. “As principal my vision is to create an affordable private school with excellent academic results.”

Riverside currently teaches the Namibian syllabus, with about 15 to 20 learners in a class, and two classes per grade.

“Enrolment is now open for next year. We’re still sorting out our identity but with Riverside Private, we would like to give something different to the community, including excellent academic standards, small classes and individual attention and support to each learner. We will endeavour to provide students with opportunities to develop physically, emotionally and socially, and to offer a vibrant and enjoyable education that will equip them to face all lifelong challenges.”
