Our History

Our History

Stemming from a history of worker’s education and evening colleges, Riverina Community College was founded as Riverina Evening College in 1982 before being renamed Regional Evening College in 1985 under the NSW Board of Adult Education

Courses were taught throughout the Riverina, locations including Gundagai, Junee, Coolamon, Deniliquin, Wagga Wagga, Hay and Coleambally. Since 1990, the College’s name was changed to Riverina Community College Inc. and operated as an association. During this time, classes were taught at various schools within the Riverina before moving to a permanent location (our current location) in 1992. Since the move, the college has been able to focus on the delivery of Vocational Education and Training (VET), the expansion of lifestyle and leisure courses and quality programs for our community. In 2003 the college became a not-for-profit organisation and company under the name Riverina Community college Limited.

In the last ten years the college has changed and evolved its focus. Business and Administration functions have been centralised to our Wagga Wagga office however the college has expanded its geographical reach across a wider range of services. We have also expanded our community partnerships and recently moved to the point where we are planning our first nationwide and online courses.
