Kingston State College

As Kingston State College celebrates 41 years since our official opening, we are proud of the excellent standard of secondary schooling across our two dynamic campuses – a 7 to 12 State High School and our Re-Engagement Centre – Kingston Learning College.  This Re-Engagement Campus has gained an excellent reputation for success, using a quarterly model of enrolment and offering students the opportunity to complete one to three subjects and vocational educational training to transition from Years 9 to 12 and onto further pathways.

 
Our College is located in the suburb of Kingston in Logan City south of Brisbane and features a natural woodland environment.  The demographic make-up of our students include:


• A high population of immigrants whose first language is not English, including 35% of students from Pacific Islander background;
• 11% of students from Indigenous background;
• Refugee students from Africa and the Middle East;
• High population of students in Special Education and “in care” situations


From 2018 – 2021 the College’s Strategic Plan will focus on the core priorities of Reading and Writing: Teacher Capacity; a revised Whole School Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Plan; and Student Wellbeing and Community Engagement.  These priorities are underpinned by excellent teaching and learning practice aligned to our School Vision ‘Nothing Left to Chance’ and pedagogical framework, the New Art and Science of Teaching (ASOT).


Aligned with the Department of Education and Training Policy platform Advancing Queensland and Advancing Education, Kingston State College’s key partnerships including Universities, local and State Governments, Business and Industry have gone from strength to strength over the past year.  Our two most recent partners include entry to the Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy (QMEA) and MOQ Digital.  This is in line with the College’s future orientated strategies which respond to the global climate in which we exist.


2018 continues to be an exciting and innovative time for Kingston State College as part of a network of 250 Independent Public Schools across the State.  It is the expectation that as a network we contribute to positive change and challenge ourselves to be the best through innovation, trialling and sharing of good practice, both locally and across the State.

 
Our story for 2018 will be a year dedicated to enhancing student learning and opportunities across Academic Performance, the Arts and Sporting programs.  Such innovative curriculum has included Coding and Robotics for all year 7s and 8s in a specially resourced centre.


A further milestone for the College has been the commencement of the ACE Academic Program for high performing students and the commencement of the Rugby Union and Touch Academy and the Academy for Music Excellence.  The interest in these Academies has boosted our year 7 enrolment to be the best in the past ten years.


What we do know is that the skills we deliver at Kingston State College over the next ten years will need to prepare students to be innovative global citizens who can navigate the challenges and opportunities they will encounter in their working lives throughout the 21st Century.
