Principal's welcome

Principal's welcome

Welcome to Koonung Secondary College. Our 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.

We have clearly defined goals for improvement. These goals are:

  • To maximise every student’s achievement and learning growth across all curriculum areas with a focus on literacy.
  • To create a stimulating learning environment which builds our students’ capacity for deep thinking and to increase the level of student agency and engagement within our community.

I have great confidence that our dedicated teachers, motivated students and supportive parents will continue in a strong partnership which leads to a Professional Learning Community – where every member of the school community continually learns and grows. A walk through our College provides evidence of students and teachers engaging together within a calm and productive working environment. We are extremely excited about the recent budget grant of $6.05 million dollars which will be used to provide updated and modern learning spaces for our community.

Our school motto is 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 through persistence and effort.

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 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.
