Celebrating Excellence: Risecliff Secondary

The “Risecliff Alumni” will be celebrating the School’s 45th year in existence on 15th July 2017.

Risecliff Secondary opened for its first student intake in 1972 under the astute leadership of the late principal, Mr. RD Nobin. He was supported by a dedicated management team comprising experienced and academically qualified staff. They set the standards upon which many of us have tread on our path to success within society, national and global platforms.

Since the schools humble beginnings, discipline, dedication and commitment was non-negotiable. The results of all round participation (including our parents and guardians) can be only discernable from the widespread successes of the Alumni who comprise academics, directors of multinational entities, self-entrepreneurs and management professionals. These achievements have led to the pride and joy we wish to celebrate. The success stories are far too numerous to mention in one article and we wish to disseminate this information as widely as possible to influence and motivate the current and future students within our community.

The organization committee has created a WHATSAPP group (Risecliff Alumni), where former learners have been engaged in posting memoirs of their school-days. This has gained huge momentum over the past few months – it is very heartening to view so many chats where old mates have come together and rekindled old friendships. The buzz is certainly encouraging. We do implore all past learners to join this group and seek out their old school mates and to also be part of the “vibe” that will make the 45th Reunion hugely successful.

The “Friends of Risecliff” Facebook Page was created and is constantly being updated with past memories. This together with various media channels will be the common thread used to keep you posted about the upcoming and future events.

A database was developed during the 40th Reunion and will be updated to cater for future communication needs of the Risecliff Alumni.
