At Richmond Vale Academy, each of us has a voice of our own. That is why, this section is dedicated to the personal experiences of each of us in RVA.
Each post will transport you into the eyes of one of our students, so you can experience through their words what life is like in the academy. Likewise, you will know their fears, emotions, joys and sorrows, from the moment they took the decision to join our programs until the graduation day of the climate change activist program or fighting poverty program. So, we invite you to live these personal experiences with us and be part of the things we do in RVA to make this planet a more beautiful place to live in.
