Principal's Welcome

Message from the Principal

Welcome to the Rivermount College website. Captured on these pages is a glimpse of the many opportunities available to students from Kindergarten to Year 12. As a co-educational Christian College we aim to provide a balanced and holistic education for students of all ages and abilities that will encourage a love of life-long learning and provide a solid foundation for their growth and development into adulthood. 

As a school community we pride ourselves on providing a warm and family focused environment. At Rivermount College, we believe that the education of our students is a partnership between the school and the home. This partnership enables the College to provide a stable and consistent environment where students are able to grow – intellectually, physically, spiritually and emotionally – under the guidance and care of their families and a committed group of Christian teachers. 

‘Realising the Potential Within’, is the essence of a Rivermount College education. Each day we strive to encourage all students to embrace challenges and overcome obstacles so that they can achieve their personal best, not only academically but in preparation for their role as active contributors to the future of our nation. Our Educational Aims and Objectives focus on providing students with a supportive learning environment that embraces a pastoral care network of respect, pride and encouragement. The greatest value we share as a community is to facilitate an environment of acceptance and understanding. Our school motto, ‘Perseverance, Integrity and Excellence’ encompasses the standards and values that all students are encouraged to achieve in their daily pursuits. 

I invite you to discover more about our College through the pages of this website. Naturally the full experience can only be truly appreciated by visiting our campus at Yatala. As a school community we have truly been blessed with a unique and natural learning environment. The natural beauty of our surroundings provides a peaceful backdrop to the modern learning facilities and resources available across the Primary and Secondary Schools. 

I encourage you to take the time to visit us and experience for yourself the true spirit of Rivermount College.
