Our College’s motto is Progress with Pride… that all members of the Kingston State College community will Progress with Pride towards their personal best through:
- wide ranging opportunities
- flexible pathways
- lifelong learning
- care and respect
- valuing of individuals.
This reflects the vision of Education Queensland’s strategic plan ‘a creative and clever Queensland focussing on the core values of professionalism, respect, innovation and creativity, diversity and inclusiveness and excellence’.
Celebrating the years since the official opening of Kingston State College in 1978, we are provided with an opportunity to be thankful for our longstanding reputation as one with high expectations and a focus on academic achievement. The College community is very proud of its long history of achievements gained by our students and we continue to promote the ideal of ‘embracing change’ while honouring tradition.
We have promoted and sustained a school culture based on traditional values of pride, respect, responsibility and a strong work ethic. Our expectations are high and we continue to ‘raise the bar’ but the challenges we face locally, nationally and internationally are larger and daily becoming more complex.
Our graduates continue to be successful in their transition from school to employment, traineeships, apprenticeships and further education and training. We are indeed proud that 100% of our students who applied for University or TAFE entry have been successful. Both the high school and Continuing Centre for Secondary Education (CCSE) campuses of Kingston State College are to be congratulated on the significant contributions they have made to the education of Logan youth and adults and for the continued improvement in results in both the vocational sector and the OP1-15 band in the Year 12 Outcomes Report.
Schools need to respond with individuals of talent, skill and determination. Our challenge as professional educators and community leaders is to understand the learning opportunities and challenges and to deliver with clarity, consistency and passion for every child, every day in every classroom.
At Kingston State College, this is our unrelenting focus on a daily basis.
