Welcome to Riverwood Primary School in Knysna

We are an independent, co-educational Primary school, situated in the beautiful Garden Route in Knysna, South Africa. We also have a Pre Primary school called Stepping Stones at the same location.

Our Mission:

  • To provide Primary School and Pre Primary education.
  • To follow a programme which is creative, individualised and child centred.
  • To encourage learners to discover their world through enriched, hands-on learning experiences.
  • To nurture the learners, in order that they may fully develop their own potential.
  • To apply the principles of sound human values, trust, respect and  open communication in all areas of education.
