What our students say

Emily Lawler - Student

Student Emily LawlerI love being able to play the clarinet in the Caloundra City Private School band. It is a really fun and rewarding experience! It is great to perform with the band on assemblies and other special occasions. Caloundra City Private School is also a very welcoming school and we have a great technology program where we get our own laptop from Year Five to Year Twelve.

Melissa Lock - Class of 2010

Former Student Melissa LockMy experience here at Caloundra City Private School was incredibly rewarding. Some of my highlights were being vice & school captain as well as my exchange to Canada.

With the small class sizes and great teachers I was able to obtain excellent educational opportunities. Because of this I was successful in achieving the university course I wanted to study at the University of Queensland.

Alex Fowler - 2011 School Captain

During my 5 years at Caloundra City Private School, the opportunities I had were endless. From Leadership opportunities to Student Exchanges I believe that I had chances to be parts of things that have helped me in life after graduating from year 12.

I was fortunate enough to go on a student exchange to Canada in year 11 and made lifelong friends from what can only be described as a life changing experience. From being a Class and House Captain, in year 12 I was the School Captain and thoroughly enjoyed the role of leadership at 'CCPS' and feel that it evolved my communication skills which helped me to decide on a career path.

I am now studying Public Relations (PR) at USC and feel my leadership opportunities and exchange have shaped me into the person I am today. After completing my degree I hope to either become a teacher or become a Public Relations Consultant.

Jennifer Norton - School Captain 2012

Jennifer NortonFocusing on student satisfaction, Caloundra City Private School is a completely unique and caters for each individual program. It allows flexibility in its programs, such as my custom designed timetable which allows for my external music lessons.

With life changing opportunities from Prep to Year 12, CCPS is completely distinctive from other schools in the area. Offering programs such as sports competitions, innovative technology and overseas exchanges, I have been lucky enough to be selected for several once in a lifetime events such as the exchange to Scotland. Such eventful and exclusive programs are unique only to CCPS, and I am lucky enough to have developed not only as a student, but as a person on such programs.

Natarsha Turner - Parent

Natarsha TurnerOne 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.

Bino and Nyui Hasegawa - Japanese Students

Bino and Nyui Hasegawa We came to Caloundra City Private School in November 2011. We had problems speaking and listening English when we came here however after spending time in Australia for a few months, our English skills started improving as well as our school results. This is thanks to the support of our host family and our school teachers at CCPS. The study schedule and many assignments is really hard sometimes but when we remember about that later, we realised that it is a really valuable experience for our future life.  We are so glad that we have been able to meet the expectations of the teachers. We would recommend CCPS and the community to anyone seeking International schooling.
