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.
The following information and links are provided for the benefit of the whole school community. While we endeavour to keep this webpage up to date your willingness to notify the school of outdated items, link issues and possible sites for inclusion will be appreciated.
The Community Living and Participation Grants are managed by National Disability Services WA (NDS WA) and supported by Lotterywest.
Applications are made on behalf of individuals or groups of individuals by either:
An unincorporated community group that has a bank account in its name and holds regular meetings; or
An incorporated not for profit organisation.
The Community Aids and Equipment Program (CAEP) of the Disability and Services Commission (DSC) provides an equitable, accessible and consistent state-wide scheme for the provision of equipment and home modifications to benefit people with a long-term disability living at home in the community.
Young people, regardless of whether they have a disability or not, enjoy their sporting experiences in the same way. There are physical, mental and emotional benefits for children with disability who participate in physical activity. These include but are not limited to, promotion of fitness, increased self-esteem and a great confidence boost.
