About our school

Kilbreda College, in the heart of Mentone, has provided education in the Brigidine Tradition for 119 years. Our motto, Strength and Kindliness, together with our values of Compassion, Courage, Hope, Hospitality, Justice and Wonder, underpin every aspect of College life.

We recognise that each young person is unique and we celebrate and value the experiences of our students as they establish individual identities within the community. We challenge and support our students to grow spiritually, emotionally and socially, to act with a spirit of justice for all and to achieve success in all of their endeavours. We aim to provide our students with an education that is transformative, developing a growing capacity to engage with empathy and respond with love in their lives, with others and beyond our community. With an emphasis on wellbeing, our tailored programs foster an inclusive culture that encourages a sense of pride, purpose and belonging.

Our mission is to inspire and empower our students through an innovative curriculum, which includes our unique multi-disciplinary BRIDGES program designed to Build Resilience, Independence, Dependability and Generosity while pursuing Excellence and developing Self-esteem in our Year 9 students. We also provide extensive co-curricular and leadership opportunities across all learning areas.

Principal's Message

Founded in 1904, Kilbreda College is a Catholic secondary school for girls where Christianity is lived out through core Gospel values and in the Brigidine tradition of Strength and Kindliness. We are a learning focused school where as individuals and as a whole school community we strive for continuous growth with an emphasis on improving learning outcomes.

In partnership with families, we support and encourage our students to achieve excellent individual learning and wellbeing outcomes. We are committed to providing a contemporary, comprehensive, and innovative learning environment that empowers young women to be well-informed, independent and critical thinkers who are confident to embrace an ever changing world. At Kilbreda College, staff and students form a collaborative learning community. In this safe, nurturing and challenging environment, students develop a sense of self-belief, integrity and confidence that will enable them to become part of a generation responsible for bringing positive change to our world. We encourage our students to aspire to be people of hope and compassion with a personal commitment to justice and the courage to respond to the needs of others.

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 celebrate the diversity and unique gifts of our students and encourage and support them to develop into confident and articulate young women.

I invite you to join us for one of our Open Mornings, Talk and Tours our at our annual Open Evening to learn more about our wonderful College.
