Our Community

Nicholson Network

Riva Primary School is a proud member of the Nicholson Network, an alliance of seventeen local Public Schools who work together in partnership to deliver great opportunities for our students, staff and schools.

The Nicholson Network comprises Canning Vale College, Harrisdale Secondary College and Piara Waters Senior High School as well as Aspiri, Bletchley Park, Canning Vale, Caladenia, Campbell, Excelsior, Forrest Crescent, Harrisdale, North Harrisdale, Piara Waters, Ranford, Riva, Southern Grove and Treeby Primary schools.

The vision of the Nicholson Network is to ensure excellence in leadership, pedagogy and connectedness of practice. In short, it’s schools working together to maximise impact for students in every classroom in the Network.

The children at Riva Primary School benefit from the professional capacity building and support for our teaching, leadership and support staff. Students further benefit through Network initiatives and enrichment opportunities in the arts, health and physical education, and ensuring seamless and connected transitions and practices across our schools and partner secondary schools.

The Nicholson Network Strategic Plan details our agreed focus for our combined efforts over the coming years.
