Welcome to Riverbend Primary School!
I am extremely proud to be the first Principal of Riverbend Primary School. I am an experienced educator and I am passionate about education and building relationships with students, parents, staff and the wider community. Riverbend PS is located in Communal Drive, Wyndham Vale. We are a new school which opened in 2021. We are very fortunate to have state of the art facilities which include 3 learning neighbourhoods, a gym, library, Art room and STEM room and ample playground space and equipment for our students to enjoy during their break times.
All of our staff are committed to building positive relationships with our students to ensure that they achieve their own personal excellence. Our school values underpin everything that we do. Our platypus mascot (PERRI) helps our students to remember our values. Perri comes from the aboriginal word Perridak, meaning platypus, and is an acronym for our values:
Positivity Excellence Respect Resilience Inclusion
The learning community at Riverbend P.S values diversity, inclusion and high expectations for all students. Our aim is to provide all students with high quality learning experiences and extra-curricular activities that results in excellence for everyone. We endeavour to ensure that our students leave our school as well-rounded, critical and creative thinkers who value lifelong learning and who are resilient, respectful and kind citizens.
I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the Riverbend community.
