Student services and support programs

 
What is it that makes Kawana Waters State College such a special place? Words such as caring, compassionate, warm and friendly only begin to touch on the real sense of what it means to be a part of Kawana Waters State College.
 
 
Kawana Waters State College is a place where each student's individuality is valued and nurtured, where each student is encouraged to aspire and achieve their goals. It is a place where students can be comfortable and happy, feel safe and welcome, yet be challenged and inspired. It is a place where everyone is valued and respected for the unique skills and talents that they bring.
 
 
Kawana Waters State College promotes and enjoys a unique culture of belonging and inclusion for all our students. Our core values of RESPECT, EXCELLENCE, DIVERSITY and ENJOYMENT are a focus in all areas of school life, both inside and outside the classroom, as well as in the way our students actively engage in our local community.
For all students to feel safe, supported and encouraged we have a network of support personnel who provide individualised care. You can contact the team through the Head of Department Odette Martin on the Secondary Campus (54369388) to discuss your concerns/hopes/fears regarding your child’s social/emotional development.
