We invite interested parents (and prospective students) to come along to our information evening 6pm 26 March to find out what makes our program different. You will hear from students who have been through the program and find out all details regarding the application process.

A Gifted and Talented class in Year 7 and 8

At Riverside, we have a long established Gifted & Talented class. This class is provided with an enriched curriculum that caters to the particular needs of Gifted & Talented students. The class members are extended in all subjects to encourage higher order thinking, creativity and inquiry-based learning. 

Core subject extension classes in Year 9 and 10

There is a Gifted and Talented class in each core subject. There is also the opportunity to choose special elective subjects such as Philosophy, and students take part in Macquarie University’s Big History Project as part of Elective History.
