Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the Koonung Secondary College website. Koonung Secondary College has a very strong sense of community and a culture of excellence and inclusion demonstrated by positive interactions between students, parents and staff. Our VCE results are consistently strong and our students have access to and readily participate in a wide range of co-curricular activities and experiences.

The college has recently conducted a school review and have set ourselves clear goals for continued improvement.

These goals are:

  • To maximise every student’s achievement and learning growth across all curriculum areas and year levels and 
  • To create a stimulating learning environment where there are increased opportunities for higher levels of student cognitive engagement.

I have great confidence that our dedicated teachers, motivated and stimulated students and supportive parents will continue our journey to create and sustain a true Professional Learning Community – where every member of the school community continually learns and grows.

Consider our school motto – Excellence through Endeavour. We encourage all members of our community to be aspirational, with an intention to produce a personal best via practice and hard work. This will optimise learning and progress.

As Principal, I will work together with teachers and parents, to instil a “love of learning” in our students. This will enable them to be thoughtful, creative, problem solvers; who are resilient and self-assured citizens with an understanding of self and others both locally and globally.

Thank you for your interest in our College, if we can be of further help, please do not hesitate to contact the College directly. I would like to encourage you to participate in a school tour, which is a wonderful way to meet our students and staff as they work together.
