A school like Riebeek is a place of dreams. When the girls walk through the school gate, they bring with them hopes and goals. These dreams are nurtured by a passionate staff, dynamic leadership and a full programme. 
Dream making is evident in the hostel offering week-day accommodation, packages for exam times and a day care facility; the appointment of sports co-ordinator, Mr Selwyn Seale, intern, Miss Olwethu Mxoli, Riebeek Old Girl and a News24 Mandela of the Future and Miss Sanelisiwe Klass, Staff Development Seminars by Mr August and Dr Ally of NMU and Miss Nerine Looke, Riebeek’s consulting psychologist, on Cultural Competence and Sensitivity Empowerment, well being and team-building; and the Class of 2018’s 100% pass rate: Sinovuyo Madlavu with 7 distinctions and Kyla Van Deventer and Valentina Longari with 6 distinctions each realised their dreams.
Riebeek’s mission statement has proved timeless: “To prepare our learners to meet the challenges of a changing world by providing relevant education of a high standard and instilling sound values in a stimulating and happy environment.” 
Mrs Kieran Stear, principal of Riebeek, said, “Education faces challenges. We need to be steadfast in pursuing our mission with the right blend of a sense of belonging, tradition and transformation. I have a dream of our school maintaining its reputation as a prestige school. We live in negative times. That should not make us angry, but should inspire bold dreams.”
Eleanor Roosevelt said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” The school has beautiful dreams and a wonderful future because, when a million dreams converge on the school each year, Riebeek embraces the opportunities to design the world according to the dreams of the girls who pass through her doors. Since 1877, Riebeek prides itself as being the maker of designer dreams.
