Principal’s Welcome

Principal’s Welcome

With humble beginnings in 1983, Maryborough Christian Academy has flourished into the sophisticated, market leading co-educational establishment proudly known as Riverside Christian College. I am delighted to be able to extend a warm welcome to our community of families, staff, industry partners and most importantly students.

Nearing 1800 students in 2022, the College has experienced rapid growth and facilities expansion. Our commitment to delivering a ‘Quality Christian Education’ spearheads all decisions to ensure we develop individual talents, interests, and abilities of our students to give them the capability and confidence to succeed in the 21st century underpinned by Christian Values.

Our four sectors, one school advantage means that students can have the very best learning experiences enhanced with flexible options to tailor learning to their needs. Our Junior College, Middle College, Senior College, and Distance Education Faculty cater for rich and diverse learning experiences, all situated on the one campus, resulting in seamless transitions and a long and valuable association with our community. Our exceptional facilities and commitment to stimulating and inclusive learning environments create a firm foundation for high quality education. Coupled with our highly experienced, innovative and dedicated teaching staff who are supported by a multitude of non-teaching professionals, Riverside Christian College is the choice of school regionally, nationally, and internationally.

Being the Principal of Riverside Christian College is an amazing and rewarding job. I am committed to epitomising the College’s 5 Values Well Done Good and Faithful Servant (Matthew 25:23). We want our students, staff, and families to know and love the ‘Riverside Way’ which is underpinned by the values of Excellence (Well), Teamwork (Done), Respect (Good), Faith (Faithful) and Community (Servant). We hope that our students leave with integrity, with confidence and with excellent Christian character when they graduate from the College.

I invite you to contact the College to find out when our next Principal Tour is and opportunities for experiencing our Riverside Way for a Day campaign.

Mrs Michelle Gouge
