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.

During my time as an educator and school Principal, I have seen many young students focus on their learning and time at school in many different ways. To a large extent, children will focus on learning in areas that interest them the most; often this will be additional to the classroom learning of core knowledge.

Having attended CCPS from its foundation year to my graduation in 2014, 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.
It's a real privilege to work at this school. The teachers I work with are all so dedicated, caring, professional and hard working.
The families at our school are positive and supportive and they make up a fantastic school community. I've been able to teach children of different ages in the Junior School and I've thoroughly enjoyed every year I've been here.
Our school values of excellence, integrity and learning are visible every day. Teachers are constantly looking for new and exciting ways to implement curriculum changes and keep learning exciting and diverse. Each student here works towards personal and academic goals and every day we discuss values like tolerance, understanding, honesty and lifelong learning.
