ITC School Open Day and Tour Guide 2022

It’s a big decision trying to work out which school your child will attend for primary or secondary school.  When ITC was deciding on schools we found the best way was to attend an open day.  You get to meet teachers, students and other parents.  You also tour the facilities and can make comparisons.  If you are deciding on a school ITC highly recommends you attend an open day.

Riverview is committed to helping every student develop their highest potential, whether it be in academic life, sports or creative and performing arts. We are proud to foster an environment that encourages students to discover and develop their unique talents.
