Welcome to Caloundra City Private School

Caloundra City Private School is located within the beautiful natural environment at Pelican Waters near Pumicestone Passage, Sunshine Coast. Pelican Waters and South Caloundra offer exciting prospects for managed population growth and regional development. Our vibrant young school is well positioned to service this community with all of the benefits Independent Schooling in Queensland offers for girls and boys. As our children learn and grow we anticipate that they will be the wonderful future of this magnificent region which is the Sunshine Coast.

Our Classroom Learning Environment is carefully designed to be high, light and airy, catching the best of the Sunshine Coast’s northerly aspect. Combined with these innovative room designs, the school has invested in contemporary eLearning equipment, including individual devices for each student, and complementary software allowing twenty four hour access to learning resources.

Testimonials

Molly Rava

Student

I have been attending Caloundra City Private School for eight years. Since then this school has opened up a variety of different opportunities. In 2017 I was given the opportunity to travel to Canada for 6 weeks, which was a truly life changing experience. In year 10 the opportunity of completing a Duke of Edinburgh award was put forth. With an open spirit I took it upon myself to complete not only my silver award but I have since gone onto my Gold award. I can proudly say that I have completed the award in June 2018, and this month a certificate will be awarded to me by inspiring people from across Australia. This school has changed my life, before I came to this school I struggled with academics now I’m proud to say that after school I plan to study Bio-medical Science, which will lead to a career in medicine. Overall I really appreciate and thank all of the teachers that have impacted my learning and my parents for sending me to a beautiful school. I know that I’m extremely grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given and I believe that no other school could offer me the one on one learning and opportunities that this school has.

OP1 Student

Having attended CCPS for nine years before my graduation, I can say I am proud to have grown up in the CCPS family.  I have had the opportunity to travel on exchange to Japan and Scotland, which were both truly the experience of a lifetime. I also had the chance as a House Captain to lead Mclean house to their first ever championship.

I am grateful for the small class sizes and brilliant teachers, without which I would not have been able to achieve the School’s first OP1. Thanks to the dedication of the teaching staff, I am now studying Engineering at The University of Queensland.

One of the most important decisions we make as parents is the school we select for our children's education.

We know we have made the right decision sending our three children to Caloundra City Private as this school provides our children with the most up to date education practices in the country.

The teachers have outstanding commitment and show a real and genuine interest in the children. Our whole family benefits from the schools values which are instilled into our children, and above all our children love and enjoy their school life.
