Principal's welcome

Dear Parent, carers and community members,                          

Welcome to Kuranda District State College’s website where you will find an abundance of information and resources showcasing the learning opportunities that the great staff at Kuranda District State College provide your child. We have approximately 330 students enrolled at the College and this number is predicted to grow to over 400 students in the next couple of years.
Being a small P – 12 College we offer a seamless education through the different phases of schooling in the Queensland education system. Although small, we provide big learning and extra-curricular opportunities for all of our students.
We are committed to ensuring that our students have exceptional and unique learning opportunities that will stand them in good stead for when they leave the College to either attend university, TAFE, engage in an apprenticeship or move directly into employment.
Throughout their schooling at Kuranda District State College, students will be taught the Australian Curriculum ensuring that they have opportunities to be engage in rich learning experiences across all of the different learning areas of the Australian Curriculum.
We are committed to ensuring an environment that this conducive to learning and ensuring students experience success with their schooling. Complementing the curriculum offerings, we believe in supporting students by developing their social-emotional capability through our social-emotional learning program and explicitly teaching positive behaviours through our College-wide Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) approach.
I welcome and encourage parent and community engagement with the school. We have an amazing P & C committee who are very involved in the school and we appreciate their support and contributions through a number of initiatives.
I trust you will find the resources on our website informative and useful. If you have any questions or queries about your child’s education or enrolling your child at our College, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Yours in education
Steven Moore
College Principal
