Mrs Rivka Aminoff, Principal
Over the past few years, Rivka has recognized a growing need in the community for a program that addresses the issues facing Olim teen girls. The focus of her studies and research has been to develop a program to build self-esteem and life-skills in girls who might otherwise be struggling. Rivka has a Masters in Educational Leadership, as well as experience teaching and working with high-school students; both in mainstream schools and in programs for youth at risk.
