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.

education or enrolling your child at our College, please don’t hesitate to
