Principal’s welcome

Principal Llew PaulgerWelcome to the Kelvin Grove State College's website. I hope you enjoy learning a little more about our Prep to Year 12 college where we “pursue excellence with all our might!”
At Kelvin Grove State College we take a holistic approach to developing young people’s learning. Our Junior, Middle and Senior school curriculum is progressive, innovative and caring, but still embraces the core elements of education that have traditionally been essential for success. Over a long period of time, our students have achieved some great academic results and made a valuable contribution to the wider community. We know they will continue to do so in the years to come. It is, and always has been, our people – students, families and staff - who make the difference and are our greatest strength. This makes our college an outstanding place to learn and to work.
Through our Prep to Year 12 learning program students live out the college values (PDF, 152KB) and embrace our motto, "With All Thy Might". Kelvin Grove State College has always focused on creating learning opportunities for our young people to help them to realise their dreams for the future. We have a long-established reputation for academic excellence as well offering our Schools of Excellence in dance (including a classical ballet stream), golf, football and tennis. Our specialised learning programs such as accelerated pathways to universities, particularly to QUT with whom we share a geographic boundary, meet the needs of a wide range of students. In our middle school (Years 6 to 9) we have Academic Achiever classes with a focus on enhanced learning experiences relevant to the key learning areas and P-12 programs that prepare students for the Schools of Excellence courses. Links with industry through apprenticeships and traineeships are available to our senior school students. A snapshot of our sub school programs is available for your information.
We are also proud of our long history of educating so many international students whose participation in the college enriches the learning experiences of all our students. Having one of the first international student programs accredited by Education Queensland International means we have well established, effective support structures for overseas students, both at school and with homestay families. Our learning program caters for students of different backgrounds, abilities and interests.
As you read our website you will be amazed by our rich curriculum and the co-curricular opportunities in place for our students, preparing them to take their place in tomorrow’s world. We marvel at the contribution our students make to our college as their talents and skills grow and develop. Please do not hesitate to make contact with us if you want to know more about our place – Kelvin Grove State College.
