Kalamunda Senior High School is a special place. We enjoy all the benefits a large city like Perth has to offer while being in a quiet, rural environment. This creates a school which is a close knit community into its third generation of hills families. Our staff members live close by, most have educated their children at Kalamunda and we have many staff-members who are former students. It is not surprising then, that one of our values is Community. Our other values of Respect, Resilience and Pride all come together when we work as a community of learners. These values are encompassed in all we do at Kalamunda as we aim towards our vision of Sharing our Forest of Possibilities. The school community developed this vision as it is wonderfully symbolic of our school, whose home is in the forest.
A forest is a special place where trees grow and their roots (our history and traditions) provide a strong foundation to develop and flourish. Trees provide shelter for all who live there and are strong enough to withstand the buffeting of storms. Each year new growth adds to the strength of the forest, just as our school welcomes new students and encourages them to flourish as individuals.
We would love to welcome your family to our home in the forest.
