We are very proud to announce the completion of the building of a student learning shelter
at our Wetland Centre of Excellence. With our wetland about 25 minutes away from school by foot
we have often been challenged by inclement weather impacting our days at the wetland. Now with the building
of an 18 x 24 shelter we have enough room to get out of some of the elements that can make for a challenging
day in the outdoors. Our Grade four students who come for interpretive field trips will not have to run for
their bus when it starts to rain but, now they can rest comfortably inside our new shelter.
We would like to recognize
the unbelievable cooperation of all the partners who made this possible;
Riverdale Municipality, Johann Lok, Ken Tait, Donna Morken for helping us and supporting this project.More
RCI students are developing a local wetland area for students,
the community and visitors to the area. Our school has decided to pursue this
project along Aspen Trail in order to promote sustainability, and appreciation
of and care for the environment. More
A number of new signs have been installed at the Rivers Wetland Centre of Excellence.
These signs were a part of a project undertaken by one the School's Wetland Management classes.
It was in part a part of their legacy that will continue on long
after their graduation from the the collegiate.
2016 graduate Tim Knelsen remarked that he's proud of the part he played in
developing the signs now present at the wetland.
They really add to the wetland's importance to our community and
they show how much our community is a part of our High School.More
