The school is situated in the City of Mandurah which is one of the fastest growing regions in Australia. Our school caters for students from Kindergarten through to Year 7. This year the school has become an Independent Public School which enables us to set our own future directions to better meet our school community needs. The school has developed a Business Plan which outlines our directions for the next three years.
The school’s motto “Truth, Pride & Friendship” reflects the culture we have established. The school works closely with the Parents and Citizens Association, which we invite you to participate in. The efforts of the P&C have resulted in providing the school with up to date play equipment.
In June 2010 Riverside Primary School received an Excellence in Public Education Award. The award was issued after the Department of Education Expert Review Group assessed the school and wrote “The capacity of the school to support and nurture all students, sometimes through extreme adversity is quite remarkable. The genuine care, trust and mutual respect that exist among the members of the school community are easily observed. Students feel safe and well supported.”
