Welcome to Caloundra City Private School

A warm welcome to CCPS. A place where the education program is future focused, personalised and focused on preparing students for success in life after school.

Mr Leon van Niekerk

We know that searching for the right school for your child is a process of much deliberation. A process, that as a parent, means asking the questions – Who will my young person become? Who do I trust to work with me to secure only the best for my young person?

With this in mind, we are proud to say that at Caloundra City Private School we have committed, knowledgeable and caring staff onboard who want to partner with you as parents and carers to guide your child to reach their full potential. 

Our vision is to create learning opportunities that are memorable and foster deep understanding. These engaging learning opportunities will also create an environment that ultimately develops a person that is well rounded in character, has developed the aptitude for lifelong learning and who is resilient enough to overcome the challenges and engage with the opportunities that 21st century life brings to them.

We also understand that life at school is more than just learning academia and therefore we have developed a holistic approach to student development. One where learning life skills through outdoor education, school camps, cultural immersions and participating in sport is just as important.

Our school parents are our partners and together we work to establish meaningful opportunities for engagement where the focus is placed on all students’ wellbeing, education progress, their connection and service to the community, and advancements in their growth in character.

Caloundra City Private School is also committed to continuously developing new opportunities and different pathways for all students to excel. As students pursue various pathways through the curriculum and co-curricular offerings, they will learn the art of self-efficacy and taking courageous action by living out the Schools’ values of Excellence, Integrity, Learning Respect and Inclusiveness.

Our aim is to ensure our graduates are best placed to thrive well into the 21st century. Our strategic direction for Caloundra City Private School places a core focus on the following aspects:

  • Wellbeing and Positive Education leveraging the PERMAH and PEEC frameworks
  • Quality Teaching and Learning with a focus on STEAM, project-based learning, digital literacy and entrepreneurship
  • Community, inclusive of students, parents, teachers, local and international community
  • Future focused education program that develops transferable skills, lifelong learning and readiness for the world of work of the 21st century

I invite you to come and visit our school for yourself, meet our friendly staff, see the beautiful surroundings, and experience our passion for delivering a great schooling experience for your child.

Yours in education,

Mr Leon van Niekerk
