Kilbreda College

Kilbreda College

VIC, Melbourne Southern Suburbs & Western Port









Kilbreda College has been educating young women in the Brigidine tradition for over 116 years. With a rich Catholic heritage and a strong commitment to the college motto of Strength and Kindliness, students have every opportunity to become women of hope and compassion with a commitment to justice and the courage to speak out and respond to the needs of others.

Together, staff and students form a collaborative, learning-focused community that strives for continuous growth through perseverance and effort. We recognise and value the uniqueness of each individual and our programs are underpinned by the belief that every student can learn and achieve success.

Through exposure to a rigorous learning environment, an extensive co-curricular program and a deep commitment to social justice, our mission is to inspire our students to pursue academic excellence, express their creativity and embrace opportunities for leadership and service.

We are committed to providing the knowledge, skills and experiences that today’s students need to thrive in tomorrow’s world. Our wellbeing, leadership and learning programs develop students’ problem solving, communication, decision making and information literacy skills. Students are taught to show initiative, apply their knowledge to unfamiliar situations and think critically. These skills, along with the ability to work both independently and collaboratively, provide them with the skills needed to thrive both today and in the future.

We encourage and provide many opportunities for students to undertake science, technology and mathematics subjects as well as STEM-based competitions and activities. In digital technologies, students are provided with opportunities to be involved in programming/coding, game and web design, 3D printing, animation, movie making and robotics.

Our unique BRIDGES program is an interdisciplinary, experiential and project-based learning program that Year 9 students undertake one day per fortnight. Four thematic units develop social competencies and resilience, creative and critical thinking while broadening student understanding of their role as both local and global citizens.

Our recently completed, state-of-the-art, 400-seat auditorium has further enhanced learning opportunities for students, with a wide range of uses in theatrical and musical performance, as well as for seminars and other presentations.

Our comprehensive co-curricular program provides many opportunities for students to pursue their interests, further develop their knowledge and skills and discover hidden talents. Students are encouraged to take up and actively participate in the rich co-curricular program offered at Kilbreda College.

Opportunities are offered in the areas of Debating, Public Speaking, Writing, Drama, Music, Robotics, Science, Visual Arts, Leadership, Social Justice and Democracy, Outdoor Education and Sport.

  • Student Leadership
