Riyan Minaee

(OR2020)

Riyan’s education at the College began as a hope of his mother’s and came to fruition through the advocacy of Old Boys. He started as a shy young man, who became emboldened by the call to be a ‘man for others’. Throughout his time at the College, Riyan led by example, making an impact among his friends and peers at Gonzaga House and graduating, in the words of his Head of House, as “a man of depth… [whose] sensitivity, honesty and generosity allow him to connect easily with others.” Riyan continues to pursue his passions and is now studying Engineering at the University of NSW.

“[Being at Riverview has] had a really big impact on who I am as a person – there’s [a] sense of pride… that you are a boy at Riverview… and without financial burden, I felt less of a burden to my family… [for this] I’d like to thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
