Principal’s Message

Welcome to Rose Valley Elementary School.

Here, we are honoured and grateful to grow, learn and work on the traditional and unceded territory of the Sylix (Okanagan) People.

It is my privilege to serve our RVE family together with parents, staff, students and other community partners. We are a community of learners. At Rose Valley we strive to see each child holistically, focusing on their strengths, passions and needs, while supporting areas of growth. We intentionally construct high-quality learning tasks and experiences that promote the academic, social, and emotional development of the young children we serve. This work is founded in the belief that all students are "our kids" and the understanding that all students can learn at high levels.

I am proud of our dedicated teachers and support staff, who continuously seek to improve their professional practice around enhancing student learning and wellbeing. When this is taken in combination with our beautiful site, we are able to provide learning experiences, whether they be in classroom, or authentic outdoor learning experiences, for every student, every day.

At RVE we are focused on asking questions, exploring identity and developing the skills that will enable our learners to connect with, understand, and take responsibility for the world that we are currently shaping for them. It is my hope that our whole community will join in partnership with us in this endeavor.

I invite you to contact me if you would like more information about our school, its practices and cultural values.​
