Our new STEMP building, Wingaru, is the next phase of the College's masterplan, continuing our commitment to contemporary learning spaces that meet the needs of today's world.

To think

Wingaru - which means 'to think' in the Cammeraigal* tongue of our First Nations people of the area - will provide dedicated spaces for the study of STEMP: our specialist learning and wellbeing place for Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) and for several pastoral care Houses at Riverview.

* Riverview is seated on Cammeraigal lands, and we honour the spelling provided to us by local Elders, acknowledging also its various other Anglo-spellings as Cammeraygal, Gamaraigal, Kameraigal and Cameragal.
