About our school

Located in the heart of Bayside, Mentone, directly opposite the Mentone Railway Station, Kilbreda has been proudly educating young women in the Brigidine Tradition for over 118 years. Our College values of Compassion, Courage, Hope, Hospitality, Justice and Wonder, underpin every aspect of College life. At our College, our innovative curriculum acknowledges, celebrates and values the experiences of students as they establish individual identities within our community. They will experience an education that is transformative through a contemporary and comprehensive learning environment that empowers them to be well-informed, independent and critical thinkers in this ever-changing world. Within our students we develop and nurture a growing capacity to engage with empathy in the lives of one another and within and beyond our community. In addition to community programs and partnerships our students are encouraged to partake in an extensive co-curricular program with a commitment to STEM, the Arts, Sport, Living Justice and Sustainability. We recognise that each of our students are unique and are committed to ensuring that they are are known, challenged and supported. With an emphasis on student wellbeing, our tailored programs foster an inclusive, nurturing culture that encourages a sense of pride, purpose and belonging.

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.
