Our mission is to provide a quality education through shared responsibility in a safe supportive environment for all students to meet the challenges of a global society.

We are “Committed to Excellence”, and we work hard to make the site a primary source for timely information for all users, and a main gateway for improved communication between parents, teachers, students and other members of our community. Our goal and responsibility is to help each student develop an enthusiasm for learning, a respect for self and others, and the skills to become a creative independent thinker and problem solver.


Rivers Elementary School is pleased to announce that our grant application has been approved with the Teacher Idea Fund for Nature-based pedagogy and mental health at our school for the amount of $112,000.
We are excited to partner with Brandon University, The Manitoba Gov’t, our school, and community to make this project work. 
With this grant we will expand our focus on land-based learning, implementing The Mamahtawisiwin framework and improving student mental health. 
We intend to incorporate outdoor education principles into daily learning within the school and infusing it with Indigenous ways of knowing and doing.
Current research states that outdoor learning can help to improve student achievement while helping to support positive mental health.
