A Passion

For the Arts

The Riebie Culture Team is cooking up a perfect storm! With keeping their finger on the pulse on what is hot and happening, they ensure that we excel in every cultural field we take on.


We are active and excel in the following activities:

    • Choir
    • Revue
    • Eisteddfod
    • Public Speaking


In 2018, our Senior Choir wins the Informal Division of Sing in Harmonie and is named the school with the greatest and best entertainment value. They also get Cum Laude at Super 12.


The Riebies Junior Revue was on everyone's lips after a video clip of our own "John Travolta" was shared on social media. They were the only Junior Revue group to come to Lefra's finals. A great achievement. They made everyone's feet itch to sing and dance.


During the Eisteddfod performances of 2018, the Riebies are awarded the following awards:

    • 4 Section winners
    • Item winners
    • Prestige winners


Our public speaking Riebies went through to several national competitions' national finals, of which they won first, second and third places.


Be sure to watch the Riebie Cultural Team with all its activities again in 2019, as they are already working hard to make that Riebie flag fly high!

The aim of Riebies for Jesus (R4J) at Van Riebeeckpark Primary is to help children live Christian values as Riebies. We provide learners the opportunity to get "food for the soul" in a school relevant way.


R4J for the Seniors assemble every Monday from 07:00-07:20 in the hall and the Juniors assemble every Tuesday from 07:10-07:30 in the hall. This is an informal gathering. At R4J we all agree: "It's a pleasure to praise the Lord".
