Kingston State College has had an excellent commencement to the 2019 school year following our Year 12 results in 2018 with students attaining 100% QCE. All students achieved between one and four Vocational Education Certificates and 98% gained a first round offer to University or TAFE.
Our story for 2019 will be a year dedicated to enhancing student learning and opportunities across academic performance, the Arts and sporting programs. This year continues to be an exciting and innovative time for Kingston State College with our involvement in the Independent Public Schools' Alliance of 250 State schools across our state.
The three areas of focus as identified by IPS schools and aligned to ACARA general capabilities include, lifting literacy – high order achievement in literacy; critical thinking – self-regulated learning; and wellbeing – personal and social capability. However, our mindset needs to shift to reflect a more dynamic future of work where linear careers will be far less common and young people will need a portfolio of skills and capabilities to navigate the more complex world of work of the 21stCentury.
