Our School

Kalamunda has a rich culture of the arts, with our Gifted and Talented Visual Arts program, Performing Arts programs and a vibrant music program which includes concert bands, orchestra, guitar ensemble, string ensemble and choir along with many contemporary bands and other instrumental ensembles.  Camps and overseas tours have provided students with an opportunity to perform internationally as well as in many local and regional venues and events. Art and music are also complemented by strong dance and drama programs which make use of the excellent 250 seat Performing Arts Centre located next to the school.

Kalamunda graduates are in high demand and this demand reflects the excellent reputation of the school in the arts and academic studies. The school offers an extensive range of courses leading to studies at university and TAFE colleges. Students are nurtured and extended in the school’s Academic Excellence and primary excellence programs, and the school achieved high rates of WA Certificate of Education achievement by students over the years.

Kalamunda has great pride in its Endorsed Outdoor Adventure program and school-based Soccer program.  Annual swimming, athletics and cross country carnivals bring together the whole school community including parents, teachers, and students. Students also have many opportunities to compete in school teams representing many fields of sporting endeavour.

Kalamunda offers a welcoming and supportive environment for all students. A strong and committed student services team, including a Program Coordinators, Year Coordinators, chaplain, nurse and school psychologists, work together to provide support to students and their families in navigating high school.  Our Learning Centre staff provide support to students with specific learning needs.

Being co-located with the Kalamunda Secondary Education Support Centre provides a wonderful opportunity to develop respect, understanding and inclusion for our students.

Where enrolment permits Kalamunda also welcomes international fee paying and exchange students who bring a wonderful multi-cultural dimension to our very Australian school. We also have links with our sister schools in Japan and trips and exchanges to Indonesia, Italy and Japan reflect the strong ties to the countries of the three languages taught at Kalamunda.

Kalamunda is, indeed, the best kept secret in the hills.
