River Valley High School (RVHS) is a SAP secondary school in Singapore.

History

Beginnings

Founded in 1956, River Valley High School (RV) was the first Chinese secondary school set up by the government. Initially known as the Singapore Government Chinese Middle School when it occupied the premises of Seng Poh Primary School, it was renamed Queenstown Government Chinese Middle School when it moved to Strathmore Avenue.

Ascendance

It admitted its first batch of English stream pupils when it was selected as one of the nine Special Assistance Plan (SAP) schools in 1979. It shifted from River Valley to West Coast in December 1986. Due to the smaller school campus at the West Coast site, the school became a double session school. It reverted to a single session school in 1993 after adding new blocks to the West Coast site. It was among the first six schools in Singapore to assume the ascendance to autonomous status in 1994.

21st Century

Starting from 2006, the school will offer the River Valley Integrated Programme (RVIP), where pupils do not take the GCE 'O' Level Examinations and go on straight to prepare for the GCE 'A' Levels Examinations.

Leadership

Since its establishment, River Valley High School has had seven principals, including the current one. They are:
*Mr Sun Yat Sun 孙一尘 (1956-1960)
*Mr Lim Hui Eng 林惠瀛 (1960-1962)
*Mr Wong Cheong Chie 王昌稚 (1962-1964)
*Mr Wong Bing Chie 王炳绩 (1964-1974)
*Mdm Leong Fan Chin 梁环清 (1974-1993)
*Mr Tham Tuck Meng 谭德明 (1993-2003)
*Ms Ek Soo Ben 易素雯 (2003-)

The current Vice-Principals are:
*Mr Chua Kah Sheng
*Mdm So Kah Lay
*Ms Chuang

RV recognises strong leaders who had helped chart the directions for the school's future. Mdm Leong was the first of the leaders who put the school firmly on the excellence track. The school has a special fund named after her to help needy pupils. Mr Tham Tuck Meng (Principal), Miss Ek Soo Ben (Principal and Vice Principal) and Mr Martin Koh (Vice Principal) were also instrumental in achieving excellence for RV. All three principals were presented the RV Award of Excellence (Leadership), the highest award that the school presents that recognises excellence in leadership.

chool Song

The River Valley High School school song is one of the few Chinese school songs still present in Singapore.

It represents the heritage of the school and the aspirations of the founders' hopes in educating the next generation. Student are reminded to bring glory to the school through excellence in both academics and behaviour.

The school song is written in literary chinese, giving a poetic touch to the school song. The lyrics are written in verses of four characters, a parallel to chinese idioms. However the last phrase is not in tandem with the rest of the song. The last phrase is made up of 2 lines of 6 characters each, making it irregular in accordance to traditional Chinese literary rules.

The River Valley High School Song:

海云漫漫碧波荡荡

赤道绿洲有我学堂

春风化雨桃李成行

立德立功化愚化顽

愿我学子勿忘勿忘

他日我校光芒万丈

愿我学子勿忘勿忘

他日我校光芒万丈

与日月争光兮

与天地共久长

It is from this song that the school motto, 立德立功 化愚化顽, came about.

Location

trathmore Avenue

Jalan Kuala

West Coast Road

The school was housed at along West Coast Road from 1986 to 2004. The campus was taken over from a previous junior college, after an extension to the facilities by an auditorium, a special function rooms block and a new classroom block. The auditorium was able to house over 2000 students at any one time and was the centrepiece of events held within the school. A smaller multi-purpose hall on top of the canteen supplemented the multi-purpose hall as another gathering location for the students.

The school garden is in the heart of the school, and is an integral part of the aesthetics of the school. Group pictures are often taken at the garden (other than formal shots which are usually taken outside the school archives or the car porch infornt of the auditorium).

The school directly faced the Pandan Reservoir, the running track around the perimeter of the reservoir offered an ideal location for the school to hold its runs and Physical Education sessions. It had 3 basketball courts and a football field complete with a gymnasium.

The School building was selected for upgrading under the Ministry of Education's PRIME program in 2004.

Commonwealth

When the campus at West Coast road was selected for PRIME in 2004, the school shifted its location to a temporary holding school in Commonwealth. It operated at the location from 2005 to the middle of 2006. In the middle of 2006, the school announced its RVIP programme and was allocated a brand new building in Boon Lay for that purpose. The school then shifted its location again to Malan Road at the former Saint Andrew's Junior College, a larger campus so that the school could house its larger student body till the new building in Boon Lay is completed.

Malan Road

The school is now situated in a holding site at the former Saint Andrew's Junior College campus at Malan Road. It will be situated there for a few years until the construction of their permanent compound in Boon Lay is completed.

Boon Lay

The school will relocate to a new campus situated in Boon Lay. The construction of this new campus will take approximately about 4-5 years, and will be ready in the year 2010. The Boon Lay compound will be large enough to house six cohorts of students. (due to the RVIP Programme)

The groundbreaking ceremony for the new campus took place on 16th January 2008.

chool crest

Red: symbolises radiance, progress and vitality
Blue: symbolises steadfastness, graciousness and serenity
White: symbolises purity and receptiveness to innovation

chool Uniform

The school uniform is unique to River Valley High School, one of the most outstanding and identifiable uniform designs in Singapore. The uniform is all white, with a school logo at the front left chest that reads RV in red and blue - the school colours.

Girls' Uniform

Girls wear a pinafore that is uncommon in other schools. The pinafore is single piece, with short sleeves and a belt. This differs greatly from other schools which adopts pinafore as a uniform for girls, which have uniforms that are sleeveless with or without a shirt inside. This makes the River Valley High School girl's uniform unique, making them one of the most identifiable in Singapore. Some girls choose to wear shorts underneath.

The belt is affixed at the waist level. It used to be a separate piece from the uniform, but since 2003, it had been sewn on to the uniform at the back, due to concerns over school image when girls take off their belts out of school and allowing the uniform to look baggy.

The girls are also issued with a blue skirt, currently used as casual wear, with their own CCA T-shirt or the standard PE T-shirt. From year 4 onwards, girls wear uniforms of a new design as required for the RVIP programme. It consists of a white top with a blue skirt.

Boys' Uniform

Boys in River Valley High School wears a uniform that consists of a bush-jacket and a pair of shorts, for students up to Year 3. From Year 4 onwards, boys wear uniforms of a new design as required for the RVIP programme.

The uniform also contains 6 pockets; 3 on the bush-jacket, 2 on the front of the shorts and one at the left breast. The letters 'RV' are present on the left chest pocket.

In the 1970s and 1980s when River Valley High School conducted pre-university classes, the Pre-University boys wore long pants to differentiate them from secondary school boys. With the introduction of the RVIP programme, students from Years 4-6 are required to purchase uniforms of a new design, consisting of a white top with a white long pants. They are required to put on a collar pin to differentiate themselves from other secondary schools.

Metal Buttons

River Valley High School uniforms takes on a unique feature of traditional Chinese schools. It uses metal buttons instead of normal plastic ones. The metal buttons consists of 2 parts, the button and the ring. The button is a mushroom-shaped piece that consists of a shield and a tail that has a ring at the bottom. There is an inscription of the words 立化 in calligraphic writing on the surface of the shield. The button is removable from the uniform.

River Valley High School is one of the few schools left with such a design of buttons. The buttons are removable. However, since 2004, the buttons have been changed to plastic button and sewn on the clothes itself. Nevertheless the inscriptions still remains on the buttons to retain the school identity which is much displayed by the school's one-of-a-kind uniform girls use 5 metal buttons for the uniforms (3 for the front and 2 for the shoulder flaps) and boys use 6 or 7 metal buttons (4 or 5 for the front and 2 for the shoulder flaps) as their uniform is untucked and longer.

Insignias

River Valley High School also has another unique feature of traditional Chinese schools - the two shoulder flaps. Traditional Chinese schools award ranks to the students according to their achievement and seniority, and these shoulder flaps, like military uniforms, are used to hold rank slides that denotes their ranks. Since the abolition of this system, the shoulder flaps serves no major purposes, but instead is reminiscent of its roots as a traditional Chinese school; an identity among the Chinese schools.

In recent years, however, the shoulder flaps have found new uses to hold insignias - rings made of cloth material with different colours. The insignias identify key appointment holders in the school, with each colour denoting a type of appointment that they hold:

*Yellow - Class Chairperson
*Blue - CCA President / CCA Vice-President
*Green - Student Councilor
*Red - Student Councilor, Executive Council (EX-CO)
*Green over Red - Vice-President of Student Council
*Red over Green - President of Student Council

This makes key appointment holders understand and identify themselves as leaders of the school. This also allows the Secondary One students to better know who they can look for help with.

Collar Pins

Students of the school also wear collar pins on the left collar. The collar pin usually consists of 2 pins, one of which is the school pin and the other is their CCA pin. This helps the students identify themselves strongly as a member of the school and their CCA. One can easily identify which CCA a particular student belongs to by just looking at the collar pin. Performing arts groups, being the niche of the school, have another unique feature to the collar pin - a tail at the back of the pin. Some CCAs do not have a collar pin.

The school collar pin is worn above the CCA collar pin (with the exception of NCC and NPCC as their CCA pin contains the national crest and thus have to be placed above the school pin).

Student councillors, class leaders and CCA leaders have the appropriate wording 'Student Council', 'Class Leader' or 'CCA Leader' inscribed on their school collar pin.

chool Culture

River Valley High School has had a culture unique to itself for the past 2 decades. Graduates from River Valley High School is often viewed as having a special trait that identifies them as alumnis of the school.

Chinese Culture

River Valley High School, being a Special Assistance Plan school, have a very strong Chinese environment. Chinese language, culture and history is often emphasized in River Valley High School. All students are compulsory offering Higher Chinese through their 4 years, Chinese culture lessons in lower secondary with an option for Chinese Literature in upper secondary. All students and staff of River Valley High School are fully competent in both English and Chinese. This special trait of River Valley High School is expressed in many ways, examples being the national pledge is recited in both English and Chinese, and speeches during major events are given in English, and then repeated in Chinese.

This kind of environment inoculates the students in a literary environment, where Chinese is a common medium of communication between the students, and sometimes even between the students and the teachers (during off-lessons hours).

chool Events

RV Cultural Night

Once an event to celebrate half-decade anniversaries, the flagship product of RV's performing arts niche achieved a higher level when it became a bi-annual event for the school to showcase the dazzle and standard of its performing arts groups.

The RV cultural night is usually a 2-day event spanning a weekend during the second term of the schooling year. It features performances put up by the various performing arts groups of the school, and frequently roping in the help of ELDDS and CLDDS to put up theatrical performances such as drama.

The 2 days are usually differentiated by theme, often one being Asian and the other being international. This allows the performing arts groups to experiment with new styles of performances, and also enhances the flexibility of the performing arts groups to be able to adapt to a myriad of themes and styles. The dazzling performances of the groups often impress the public, both in a casual and a professional aspect.

Academics

River Valley High School have always been among the top performers in Singapore in the General Cambridge Examinations 'O' Levels. Its academic niche has always been the sciences and mathematics-related subjects.

Entry Requirements

Traditionally, River Valley High School benchmark its entry cut-off at an aggregate of 258 for the Primary School Leaving Examination. As River Valley High School have no affiliation (despite sharing the same name as River Valley Primary School, there is no affiliation between River Valley High School and River Valley Primary School), its doors are open to all who can make the mark to enter the school. Appeals are accepted, but the entry aggregate is never below 250, the lowest aggregate required to enter a SAP school.

On top of that, one who is interested in enrolling into River Valley High School must offer Higher Chinese at O Levels. River Valley High School only offers Special Stream, hence making Higher Chinese compulsory. This criteria makes RV almost an exclusively Chinese school, with a few exceptions of other races who offer Higher Chinese. [http://app.sis.moe.gov.sg/schinfo/SIS_SearchDtls.asp] "'

Examination Standards

Being a Special Assistant Plan and Autonomous school, the school is able to set its own standards in terms of teaching and testing. The school is adept and well known for teaching a certain topic to a greater depth than that required by the Ministry of Education. This allows the student to understand the topic more thoroughly and thus be able to apply their knowledge in more situations. The examinations in River Valley High School is pitched at a very high standard, challenging the students to think and analyse the situation before being able to come to a conclusion. In RV, this is believed to allow the students to better apply their in-depth knowledge.

Promotion Criteria

There are promotional criteria in RV, combined with a very stringent subject combination selection process. To be promoted from secondary 2 to secondary 3, students must score at least an average GPA [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPA_in_Singapore] grade of 2 in their overall grade, or 55% and above for all subjects. This ensures that the students are fully able to cope with whatever subjects they are offering, and that they will be able to do their best in the national examinations.

For example, to be able to offer all three sciences in upper secondary, one must achieve at least a total GPA grade of 2.5 in lower secondary. This results in restrictions in subject combinations in the school, but ensures that the students are able to do well.

Legacy

For the class of 2004, River Valley High School achieved an average L1R5 score of 9.6, placing it at its height for the past ten years. It earned the school a ranking of 5th in Singapore, behind the Big Four Secondary Schools of Singapore (Raffles Institution, Raffles Girls' School, The Chinese High School and Nanyang Girls' High School in chronological order). That is the last time the Ministry of Education ranked schools according to their academic performance.

River Valley High School Integrated Programme (RVIP)

Starting from 2006, River Valley High School will start offering the 6-year Integrated Programme, allowing its students to take the GCE 'A' level examinations at the end their sixth year in the school. It is also set to offer the Bicultural Studies Programme (Chinese), joining Dunman High School, Hwa Chong Institution and Nanyang Girls' High School. This programme will groom students with a good foundation in Chinese language, history and culture, and an understanding of contemporary China.

Curriculum Framework

The unique features of the RVIP curriculum:

* The RVIP seeks to develop each child holistically and equip him with the requisite ASK: Attitude, Skills and Knowledge. ASK permeates all programmes and is a school-wide effort to encourage the nurturance of good habits of mind, thinking skills and knowledge construction. ASK is not a programme. It is a learning culture, the invisible hand that guides the thinking, planning and implementation of the RVIP curriculum.

* RVIP is delivered through a broad-based and rigorous curriculum, anchored in the design of a process-centred curriculum. This is a pedagogical shift from focusing on content in education to including both content and process. As the pupils learn, they focus their own learning and thinking on why they learn, what they learn and how they learn. At times, they may have to unlearn in order to relearn. Through an inquiry-led process, they seek to form meanings from the various learning opportunities provided in their curriculum.

* As a Special Assistance Plan (SAP) school, we seek to develop all students to be effectively bilingual in English and Chinese as well as nurture a core group to be bicultural in orientation. The move towards a bicultural orientation will provide these students with a strong understanding of China's culture, history and recent developments so that they are in a better position to engage China and the West with confidence.
