Having attended CCPS for nine years before my graduation, I can say I am proud to have grown up in the CCPS family.  I have had the opportunity to travel on exchange to Japan and Scotland, which were both truly the experience of a lifetime. I also had the chance as a House Captain to lead Mclean house to their first ever championship.

I am grateful for the small class sizes and brilliant teachers, without which I would not have been able to achieve an OP1. Thanks to the dedication of the teaching staff, I am now studying Engineering at The University of Queensland.

Cieran Kent – Graduating Student

One 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 School, which 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.

Natarsha Turner – School Parent

Our sincere thanks to everyone at CCPS for the fabulous job you have done in getting our kids learning from home. The work that has gone on behind the scenes from IT gurus, all staff (principal, teachers, administration etc.) to get everything operational must have been enormous.  For teachers who have had to prepare and present a whole new way of learning – thank you.  It is a testament to everyone at CCPS how smoothly (from a parents perspective), the process has been. 

We have tried to impress upon the kids that we should take the opportunity to embrace the challenges we are facing at the moment and try to find innovative and new ways of adjusting to what is the new “normal”.  We could not have done this without CCPS doing the same.

Rob and Heather Hartigan – School Parents

I have been at CCPS since Year 3. I am grateful to the School for giving me many opportunities such as international volunteering and leadership roles. However, I am most grateful for its support of my passion for Music which has allowed me to attend CCPS and Griffith Conservatorium for Music since Year 9.

Although Music may not be the path I follow after School, it has given me a love of playing and performing that will forever be a part of my life. Thanks to the inspiring Teachers, I additionally have a passion for Maths and Science which I will most likely pursue at University. Although my path is yet unclear I am lucky to have many options as a result of attending CCPS.        

Hannah Stuart – Graduating Student

When we came to Caloundra City Private School, we had problems speaking and listening English 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.

Bino and Nyui Hasegawa – Japanese Students

‘Being new to the area, we chose CCPS from online research and virtual tours with various staff. The last 5 months has shown us it has been a great decision for our kids schooling. It’s a great school with friendly staff and a strong community feel. Being a smaller school allows high level of recognition and interaction with our kids. The staff are very welcoming and the facilities and grounds are modern and promote a high standard. We are looking forward to watching our kids grow and develop at CCPS throughout their schooling years.’

Alyssia and Will
