Principal’s welcome

We consciously use the term “Learning for Life” at Kawana Waters State College.
Our focus on developing an innovative and enterprising curriculum underpinned by quality training and professional development is a key priority at our College. Diverse, multiple pathways at exit have been a trademark of Kawana Waters State College and result from a combination of high quality programs and a stable and experienced teaching team.

Nestled between the surf beaches of the beautiful Pacific Ocean and the tranquil waters of the Lake Kawana Rowing Facility, we enjoy a strong partnership and shared facilities with Stockland Park, the premier sporting facility on the Sunshine Coast. Our Programs of Excellence in Football and Aquatics have grown out of this unique partnership.

Our College community enjoys unparalleled State and National representative honours in both Aquatic Pursuits and Football. Opportunities within our two campuses in academic, cultural and sporting are diverse and dynamic across all phases of learning. We have Programs of Excellence in Academia, Aquatics, Arts and Football. The emerging greater Kawana Health and Sports Precinct will create unique educational and industry pathways for our students. Strong partnerships with precinct businesses through the Kawana Chamber of Commerce are paralleled with dynamic educational pathways through Sunshine Coast Institute of TAFE and the University of the Sunshine Coast.

Our engaged and supportive alumni often state that our vibrant International Program had a profound impact on their aspirations. International friendships, International Study Tours and a global perspective projected through our curriculum are the result of a very successful and internationally celebrated International Program that hosts hundreds of International students from Asia, Europe, The Americas and Britain annually. The culture of our College is positively shaped by this exciting program. Kawana Waters P-12 State College is internationally accredited through the Council of International Schools.

The values of our College are clearly articulated and vibrantly endorsed in daily College life. Our College website is designed to positively communicate these values and celebrate College experiences. I encourage you to explore it further at

We welcome you to Kawana Waters State College and look forward to a productive partnership with parents to ensure that the very best outcomes for every student at our College are achieved. Our clearly stated goal to engage our community begins with this partnership.
