Principal’s welcome


​Welcome to Calamvale Community College (CCC), a P-12 College providing thirteen years of education for your child on a single campus within a supportive framework of high expectation. Our College prides itself in providing a wide range of learning opportunities across the academic, cultural and sporting fields to provide your child with rich and rewarding learning experiences that will lead and support them as they grow from child into adulthood.

A P-12 College provides a unique opportunity for students to grow through their childhood and adolescent years within the nurturing environment of a single community.  The stability and familiarity of that community allows the development of a culture of ‘high challenge’ in learning. We know that high achievement occurs when there is high expectation. We also know that children and adolescents need confidence to accept the challenges that are presented – our community enables both the high expectation and the confidence to accept the challenge and achieve to their highest level.

I am honoured to be College Principal of an institution that provides an individual learning journey for each and every one of our 2,200 students. Our College organisation defies the anonymity that new parents might expect within such a large student population; I can assure you that every student is known and planned for within the learning communities of the Junior School or the Houses of the Secondary School. As a parent with a question about a student, there is a school community leader who is the single point of contact ensuring accessibility when there is a query and that the communication channel is strong.

Our College motto is ‘building on success’ and from that first letter scribed or that first friendship made on the playground, through to the satisfaction of mastering complex problems or conquering a fear and performing on stage to achieving a personal best on the track; we will be there to encourage and celebrate those successes.

Building success is based on our values of respect, responsibility, resilience and initiative; all that we do and expect is inherent in these values. Our community comprises students, parents, extended families, affiliated associations and businesses, all of whom take their responsibility to educate our young people very seriously; we are in partnership as we take this journey through to Year 12 graduation and all the possibilities of what lies beyond.

I invite you to browse through our webpage to discover all that is on offer when you join the Calamvale Community and look forward to providing your child with every opportunity to fulfil their potential at CCC.
