Truth, Pride and Friendship

Our Community

Riverside Education Support Centre is part of a broad community that reaches across Mandurah and as far afield as Dwellingup, Pinjarra and Carcoola, although practicality limits enrolment to areas that can be serviced by the School Bus System or private transport.

The role of community is central to all schools, but is perhaps even more important for schools of children who require extra care. We therefore emphasise and encourage the child's whole community, imparting skills and knowledge that needs to be supported and upheld by every contributer to the child's wellbeing.

This emphasis on community is enabled by our community where you will find access to community resources and activities.
