Principal's welcome


AndrewWelcome to Koonung Secondary College. Koonung Secondary College is a vibrant and thriving learning community located in Melbourne’s Eastern suburbs, close to public transport, surrounded by parkland and excellent sporting facilities. Our College motto, ‘Excellence through Endeavour’ guides our work and approach in ensuring that every student is provided with the key skills to reach their aspirations and goals. Our College stands by its strong values of excellence, endeavour, respect, resilience, collaboration and resilience.  We pride ourselves upon the high level of support we provide our students, both academically, socially, and emotionally.


Our programs and approach enable our students to develop-

  • Aspiration to achieve academic excellence
  • The ability to think critically and creatively
  • The ability to be adaptable and resilient
  • Respect for self, others and the wider community
  • Strengths in developing the whole person, including sport, leadership, culture and community development

We are a College that consistently focus on self-improvement, including our approaches to improving teaching and learning as well as the physical environment. The College has recently opened a new $6.05 million Middle Years learning space and planning for the renewal and re-development of learning spaces is continuing.

Our students’ VCE results and NAPLAN achievement is consistently strong, and we are proud of the pathways of our students. We have a supportive parent and carer community and exceptional links to community groups to ensure that every student develops holistically in a wide range of endeavours.

I invite you to explore our website to view the range of exciting activities and programs on offer to support the academic, social, and emotional learning of our students. The best way to appreciate our warm and friendly learning environment, our programs and our positive learning culture is to see the College for yourself. I would be delighted to show you and your child around.
