Riverside ESC has established relationships with the following schools that enable a highly-supported transition program for students moving on to year 7 and beyond. Transition is an important and successful component on your child's learning journey, building a bridge from the safety and familiarity of well established relationships at Riverside to the unknown of high school.
The following supporting information has been made available from one or more of the above schools:
Within available resources, transition to other schools is also supported to the fullest extent possible.
When your child reaches Year 6, be sure to let the Deputy Principal or your child's teacher know as soon as possible of your preferred high school destination so that the appropriate measures and assistance can be provided.
