Location Profile

The Kurnai College Statement of Purpose reads:

To build a Learning Community with a global perspective which promotes respect and achievement.

We define a Learning Community as a community where:

  • learning is our focus
  • all members of the College Community accept the responsibility for increasing their own learning
  • all members of the College Community accept the responsibility to assist others to increase their learning

The College’s Four Pillars underpin all aspects of our work. They are: Engagement, Excellence, Work Ethic and Relationships.

The current Strategic Plan focuses on building teacher capacity through Professional Learning Teams, improved data literacy and assessment for learning practices. We also focus on creating positive learning environments through the Positive Behaviour Support framework incorporating a restorative approach that is informed by a knowledge of generational poverty. The College values student, family and teacher voice.

The College has moved to a year level team approach to drive curriculum and pedagogical development. Peer coaching, instructional rounds and growth coaching are all strategies that inform this work. The College will also provide instructional leadership development opportunities for teaching staff over the period of the new plan.

The College has developed a strong ICT network and are building our E-learning capacity at every opportunity.

The College takes a leading role in delivering LOTE with a team of Mandarin teachers and support staff who work across our network at our feeder schools.

We welcome all students to our college and we are particularly proud of our efforts to be a more inclusive learning community. The College has been recognised for its work in forging links with the Koorie community and continues to welcome students from all backgrounds, working with all to achieve success.

The College works hard to connect with our local community to increase the number of Kurnai students in further education and training. The College also administrates two satellite campuses to cater for students at risk (LV FLO) and young parents (KYPP).

The College looks to the future with a sense of optimism and a positive frame of mind. With a stronger focus on our Kurnai identity and of belonging to one College with five campuses, combined with an understanding of, and commitment to, our purpose, we move confidently forward striving to provide the best possible learning opportunities for all members of our Learning Community.
