  • History of School:

     

    Riversdale Presbyterian School is located in the small village of Riversdale south of  Trinidad situated in the Williamsville zone between the infamous Piparo Village and Hardbargain Village.

    The school was established in 1930, the previous building on the present location (Guaracara/Tabaquite Road) was constructed in 1939. However over the years it was plagued by major infrastructural problems and intermittent repairs were unable to solve the school’s severe structural deterioration. As a result, an intensive report was sent to the Minister of Parliament Mr. Surujrattan Rambachan in 2010-2011.

    His prompt intervention was responsible for the production of a new brand pre-engineered building that was completed in September 2011. The school now consists of eight (8) classrooms that are not air conditioned but are cooled by fans, an air conditioned administrative section, a hall cooled by fans and air conditioned units in the Music, Library and Information Technology rooms. There is also an air conditioned sick bay and staff room. These specialized rooms are yet to be equipped with the necessary resources. However, in August of 2014 the music room was equipped with a sixteen (16) pan ensemble. Pupils are now instructed in playing the pan every Tuesday by an appointed music instructor.  The room however is still to be sound proofed. The new construction inspires a positive attitude towards growth and development of our staff, students and all other stakeholders.
