Golf Program
In 2016 we initiated the Rivervale PS Golf Program.
With funding provided by Golf WA we have had the wonderful support of professional golfer, Mostyn Farmer.
Mr Farmer has worked with 45 students on golf skills and etiquettes.
The funding has also enabled us to purchase SNAG equipment 
The golf program has been directly linked to the Health and Physical Education curriculum.
All children K – 6 are engaged in the West Australian Curriculum for literacy. We have a focus in Letters and Sounds, Talk for Writing and use PM Benchmark for regular reading and comprehension assessment. We have built a wonderful speech and language partnership with the Speech Therapy team from ECU.
All teachers have been trained to use First Steps Numeracy strategies directly linked to the WA Curriculum. Regular assessment ensures that children are engaged in numeracy at level and then provided with teaching and learning adjustments to move them to the next level.
Rivervale has employed a science specialist teacher since 2012. This key learning area is a highlight for many students who love the stimulating and hands on approach to learning.
2016 saw the introduction of the Digital Technologies and coding programs.

Who is Tod?
TOD (Treat Others Decently) is our school mascot and represents our whole school values program. TOD the bear visits at Class assemblies and can often be seen encouraging our Kindy and Pre Primary students in their classrooms to value each other.
At Rivervale Primary the TOD theme changes fortnightly and then becomes the focus for the next assembly. Some of the values cover include : positive classrooms, fairness, respect, negotiating, inclusivity, playing games well, good manners, good listeners and many many more.
Come to a Friday assembly and you might even get a big bear hug!
