Home / About / A Proud History

Originally founded in 1934 as a Domestic Science School for Girls, Riverside has succeeded in providing a wealth of happy memories and satisfaction for generations of women who want their daughters and granddaughters to become part of their own heritage, to say with pride, "I am a Riversidian."

This is the name affectionately given to past students and staff members who have become part of the Riverside family.

A Riversidian is passionate about public education and the wonderful culture that develops when a school is truly comprehensive, meaning inclusive of all people, their values, abilities and uniqueness. Variety means that all students and staff have an opportunity to mix with many people very different to themselves, providing opportunities to see different perspectives and to be challenged.
