Principal's message


Welcome to Riverside Girls High School.

At Riverside, we specialise in educating and shaping our vibrant, young global citizens in a single-sex learning environment that provides freedom and scope for all to thrive. The quality of learning at Riverside is enhanced by the beauty of the natural environment, with our views spanning Parramatta River towards Sydney Harbour, framed by the historic Gladesville Bridge, providing opportunities for outdoor and co-curricula learning to take place.

At Riverside we nurture kind, independent, confident young women who care about the world and their impact on it.

As principal, I am committed to ongoing improvement in all aspects of school life, underpinned by a holistic wellbeing framework and rich co-curricula opportunities. I will maintain the focus on enhancing the learning culture of high expectations, where every student is given the skills and capabilities to identify and build on their strengths in an environment of innovation and care.

I am passionate about the power of collaboration and student voice in creating a learning environment where students feel valued and confident that they will have their learning and wellbeing needs met and will be inspired to be the best person they can be. I believe in the power of learning. I believe in the dedication, passion and expertise of every teacher that I lead.

I believe that Riverside provides the learning, cultural and sporting opportunities for every girl to strive to be the best she can be. I am proud to be leading a school that is dedicated to nurturing the creativity, communication and adaptibility of our next generation of female leaders.
