Stuart Evans, Principal of the Junior High School
My name is Stuart Evans and I am the Principal of the Junior High School at Riverside. I come from Melbourne, Australia and am married to Rebecca who teaches in the Primary School. Our three children – Liam, Zara and Felicity also attend the school.
Junior High provides an education that is inspiring and challenging for the individual through an engaging, dynamic and innovative curriculum. It motivates our students to reach great heights and explore new initiatives through a variety of projects. These enable students and teachers to participate in exciting pathways which are relevant to the developmental needs of this age group.
The Junior High Curriculum enables students to embrace and enjoy their studies, to make connections between areas of learning, develop higher order thinking and engage in a process of life-long learning. Further, we seek for our students to see relevance in their learning in order that their experience of education be life-worthy.
Junior High students have many opportunities to explore a range of activities through our Skills for Life and Outdoor Pursuits Programmes. They provide our students with specialist instruction and promote higher levels of challenge, enabling students to raise their self esteem and develop their skills in leadership and teamwork.
