Riverside Way Logo riverside way We honour God. We serve generously. We learn enthusiastically. We speak gently. We act responsibly. We live truthfully. We encourage cheerfully. We welcome challenge.

Riverside Adventist School has maintained a tradition of excellence for over 50 years. It is noted for its caring Christian environment, its highly qualified and professional staff and outstanding academic results.

The School is committed to helping every child reach their full potential. To this end, the school has small class sizes with a maximum of 25 students per class. Enrolment is open to all families who have regard for the Christian ethos and the culture of the school.

The school is a member of Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ) and is regulated by the Quality Adventist Schools (QAS) Framework. We proudly teach from the National Curriculum to ensure that our learning is at the forefront of education.

Importantly, the school offers one of the most competitive fee structures of any private school in the Townsville area and provides the students with all their basic stationery and all text books.

Adventist Education exists because we believe in the profound love of Jesus and the hope, peace
and joy that comes from knowing Him, and living with Him and for Him. We want to share this good
news in our early learning services and school communities. We are intentional in everything we
do – from our attitudes, words, and actions to reflect Jesus to our students, young children, families,
and wider community.

Our belief is that students and young children will truly flourish when their spiritual, mental,
physical, and social needs are met. We want to inspire and care holistically for each person –
equipping them with the beliefs, values, and skills to live a life of purpose, hope, joy, and peace as a
global citizen for Christ.
