Meet the Riverside Principal

Our community …

At Riverside our community is everything. Over the coming months we will profile some of the teachers, staff, families, students and volunteers who help to make Riverside the small school with a big heart!

Meet Bronwyn, Riverside Adventist School Principal

Bronwyn Goodwin - Riverside Adventist School Principal

“I can guarantee that your child will receive a quality education at Riverside.”

Taking up the role as Riverside Principal at the start of 2020, Bronwyn’s background in teaching spans 37 years!

For Bronwyn, teaching is much more than just a job and she openly admits it’s something that she finds it hard to switch off from.

“Teaching is God’s calling for me but I make sure I always take time out in the beautiful outdoors, make memories with my family, build Lego, read and game online,” said Bronwyn.

Bronwyn loves that Riverside is a small primary school set on the stunning Ross River.

“At Riverside we aim to make learning practical and relevant so that students learn deeply.”

 “The rain trees, the park lands and the water make it a beautiful environment in which to work and learn both academically and spiritually.”

The teachers at Riverside know their students and support them to learn at their own pace in a fun and flexible environment.

When she’s not focused on all things Riverside, Bronwyn’s family, including her husband of 35 years, three adult children (and a grandchild on the way) are her world.

“God and my family mean everything to me and are my number one priorities, so it’s important to me to also care for myself so I can be around for as long as possible to enjoy them!”

Asked if she has a message for parents considering sending their students to Riverside for a primary school education … Bronwyn is quick to reply!

“The staff love welcoming new students and families into the school community.”  

“At Riverside we support students to love learning and we want parents to know that they will be a precious part of our school family.”

“I can guarantee that your child will receive a quality education at Riverside.”
