The Kooralbyn International School is located in South East Queensland’s Scenic Rim region. Nestled amongst rolling hills and bushland, our small school of approximately 270 students in Grades Prep to 12 provides a unique and memorable schooling experience.
The Kooralbyn International School won’t suit every child; our strict uniform requirements and merit/demerit system are unappealing to many young people. Though, as our students learn the benefits of the school policies they also learn to appreciate and respect them as well as develop an understanding of how the skills they learn in school helps to shape the person they will become in the future. Being a Kooralbyn student isn’t easy, we have very high standards in behaviour, conduct and work expectations. However, when these expectations are recognised by members of the broader community it reinforces our beliefs and boosts student’s self-esteem and self-worth.
All students in Grades 8 to 12 participate in one of our school Mastery Programs all day Friday. These programs cover a wide range of areas including Athletics, Drama, Equestrian, Golf, Performance (Media), Performance (Music), Swimming, Tennis and more. Past students of these programs include Cathy Freeman, Adam Scott and Jason Day. Many of our current students are also competing at state, national and international levels in their chosen fields.
Our boarding house is available to students in Grade 7 to 12 and is offered for the 10 weeks of each Term or mid-week boarding (Monday to Friday) for local children.
