From the Principal

Welcome to Caloundra City Private School

Mrs Sherrie Cuthbert - Principal

It is with pleasure that I welcome you to Caloundra City Private School. Students are at the heart of all we do, which has enabled us to proudly create a positive learning community where students feel safe, happy and valued. These are important elements conducive to learning and we are tremendously proud of our school’s vision to support students' holistic learning and development.

Our vision is to create opportunities and pathways for all students to excel, develop character and learn the ways to become world ready.  Students will learn the art of self-direction and be courageous enough to make a positive difference in their communities, now and into their futures.  They will be authentic and demonstrate responsibility and respect for others.  Our aim is to develop students who are connected, well rounded, kind courteous, confident, creative and engaged young people, who are ready to make a difference. 

Also important to this formula for learning are our dynamic, dedicated and caring teachers whose passion drives them to instil a love of learning in all of our students. They will do their very best to assist all students on their learning journey. 

We believe parents and other family members’ involvement in the life of our students is paramount to their success.  As a school, we want to partner with you to ensure all students embrace life at school with enthusiasm, focus and commitment. 

2021 is an exciting time for refocus and growth. We are in the process of enacting a our Strategic Vision 2021 and Beyond as we refresh and innovate at CCPS with a core focus on:

  • Wellbeing and Positive Education leveraging the PERMAH and PEEC frameworks
  • Quality Teaching and Learning with a focus on STEAM, project-based learning and digital literacy; and
  • Community, inclusive of students, parents and teachers, within our school and beyond

Our School Motto of ‘Excellence, Integrity, Learning’ drives all that we do.

With my very best wishes,

Mrs Sherrie Cuthbert - MEd BEd
