Careers and Transition

Read our Careers Newletters below.

There are important transition times during which Riverside staff provide excellent support for students.

Before High School

Positive relationships and excitement in learning is established with our local students through the Primary Links program. Local primary schools select year 4 or 5 students to attend a learning program in visual arts, science, music or media with our gifted and talented students.

This enables potential students to familiarise themselves with the school and to build connections with our current students.

Starting High School

With an Orientation Day in the December prior to starting Year 7 and a very welcoming peer support program using Year 10 students, our new Year 7's are able to settle in quickly to their new learning environment.

We start the year with knowledge of the students strengths with teachers from Primary schools and Riverside working collaboratively and sharing information.

Learning Coaches

Starting Senior School

Students are supported to choose senior subjects through one to one subject counselling with the careers teacher, deputies and specialist teachers. 

Year 12 begins with a 3 day camp at which students learn time management skills to balance school, work, social and family commitments and also to enjoy the final year of their schooling. Also students write a letter of gratitude to their support group members which may include parents, family or friends. At Riverside we believe that working together as a community of learners  will students achieve their personal best.

Starting life after school

Career guidance

An important part of going to high school is thinking about what you will do when you leave. At Riverside approximately 90% of our students go on to tertiary study. Our dedicated careers centre has information about tertiary and other educational opportunities. Students are encouraged to discuss their future study and career aspirations with the Careers Adviser. 

Activities include a continuous individual release work experience program available to all Year 10, 11 and 12 students. Our students are given the opportunity to attend Careers events and Expo’s. Our students also participate in a variety of special industry events including the Property Council of Australia, “Girls in Property”.  

At school visiting speakers talk on various subjects including Cadetships, Entrepreneurship and Women in Technology.  The ‘Going to University’ lecture series is an annual event, where major universities visit the school and talk with senior students about post school study options at their universities.  

If there is something you would like to study that we don’t offer we can provide assistance on how to study HSC subjects with external providers while completing your HSC at RGHS.
