Meet our Principal

ELISABETH LENDERS

I want to share with you some of the work we have been doing at the College over the past 18 months, in reviewing our plans and programs and thinking about our future.

Using an independent researcher, we sought feedback from a number of current and future families about their reasons for choosing Kingswood College as the education partner for their children. Lengthy interviews were held individually and in groups, and the feedback confirmed clearly for us that the values and priorities we are committed to are strongly shared by our whole community.

The overarching message from our community was loud and clear: the sense of belonging – and as a result, we implemented the ‘Belong’ focus for our branding, and have received very strong affirmation for this both in and beyond the College community. In discussing what it means to commit to a Kingswood College education, we speak with prospective families about a package, rather than a single point of difference. There are ten key parts to this, and I want to share them with you.

These ten key parts form the hallmarks of what make a Kingswood College education a gift that lasts a lifetime. Collectively, they live out our commitment to a broad, holistic, student-centred education of the mind, body, heart and spirit in a community setting, designed to help our young people become their best selves and make a positive difference in the world. The size of our community, as well as its nature, helps us all to feel that we belong.

Our Vision

‘To be a world-class school known for our innovation, engagement and collaboration; where our students’ potential soars because we nurture and challenge them to know themselves and achieve their personal best as global citizens.’
