The Environment Indigenous Education Practical Christianity
The College is blessed to provide its members with a beautiful yet modern campus that seeks to enhance and protect the natural landscape. Students are encouraged to respect, care for and protect the natural environment. The College aims to instil in students the desire to be responsible and proactive protectors of the natural environment; to educate students to conserve natural resources and embrace sustainability to effectively benefit our campus and community; to encourage community members to actively repair environmental damage through rejuvenation practices and to provide ongoing opportunities for students and the community to participate in environmental programs on and off campus.
Rivermount College is committed to building a community that shares pride in its Australian heritage and embraces a future built on unity and harmony. Through the actions and attitudes of our community it is the vision of our founders that whilst we cannot change history, we can strive for reconciliation and commit to improving social justice and equity for the Indigenous people, the original inhabitants of this country. Reconciliation between the Indigenous and non-Indigenous people of this nation is strengthened through the education of today’s youth and for this purpose the College aims to integrate and embed Indigenous education across the Kindy to Year 12 curriculum.
Central to the College Mission is its Christian purpose. Rivermount College provides a non-denominational and inclusive Christian community that welcomes families from varying walks of life and from an array of religious affiliations. It is the aim of the College to develop in students a genuine and practical Christian worldview and faith that equips them to live authentic Christian lives. The College aims to be an extension of the home to assist parents to give their children a well-balanced education and upbringing. The successful applicant will need to demonstrate their capacity to support this fundamental aspect of the College mission.
