Respect and Understanding

Southern River College’s motto, ‘Respect and Understanding’ is the foundation for the core values which are promoted across the College and to the broader community. ‘Respect and Understanding’ reflects our intentions to develop a supportive and inclusive environment for all students.


The College has developed and profiled our unique ‘4R’s:

  • Relationships
  • Respect for Oneself
  • Respect for Others
  • Respect for the Environment

The 4R’s are symbolic of the values which we believe our students can take with them on their journey through life. These are clearly articulated throughout the College community by students and staff as we work together on a daily basis.

Southern River College Excels

Our school has a rich history, this being our 39th year in operation. We are school that is on the move and growing rapidly with increase participation in our many and varied programs in: Minerals and Energy, Academic, Technology, Trades, Music, Netball and Soccer.

We have much to celebrate. Last year our students enjoyed great success with our Year 12 graduating class both at the individual student level and as a cohort.  For our efforts in 2014 we were again presented with a Top Public School Award.  The following is a snapshot of our success:

A Top Public School Award from Curriculum Council. 

  • 100% of students graduated with a Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) six years in a row now!!!
  • Attainment was an outstanding  94%
  • Certificate of Excellence
  • Attainment recognises that students who leave Southern River College regardless of WACE or VET actually leave with attaining some sort of certification or achievement recognition of their efforts after 12 Years of schooling. 

These results are an outstanding testament to the dedicated staff and talented students at Southern River College.

In 2015 – Southern River College in partnership with the Civil Construction Federation will operate its first Certificate II course in Civil Construction, allowing our students exposure to some of the most exciting career pathways in Western Australian. We will continue our work with Chevron and Toll Australia creating opportunities for our students in the Oil and Gas industry, along with Logistics and Transport. In partnership with Polytechnics West, students now have the opportunity to undertake Electrotechnology completing a Certificate II.

Our Academic students in the College will be enriched through extension courses in Maths, Science, Robotics and Engineering through Curtin University, promoting studies in the STEM areas.

Southern River College is now operating as one of four schools across the state, an Autism Extension Program for high functioning Autistic students.

The College is a recognised Teacher Development School for transition and Mathematics in partnership with Huntingdale Primary School.

Southern River College is rich in history and will be working on celebrating its 40th year of operation in 2016. Come and celebrate with us as we continue to inspire tomorrow’s future today.
