Student Health Wellbeing And Engagement Leader Jobs Vacancy in Kambrya College Jobs Details:
Kambrya College has established itself as a leading government school in Berwick, which lies in the rapidly growing south east corridor of metropolitan Melbourne. When the College first opened its doors in 2002, it was known as Berwick South Secondary College. It began with a cohort of 97 Year 7 students and 15 staff in that year. By 2017 the College has experienced extraordinary growth, with an enrolment of over 1,500 students and more than 150 staff members in 2017. In 2003 the College changed its name to Kambrya College. Like ‘Canberra’, the word ‘Kambrya’ also means ‘meeting place’ in the local indigenous language of the Wurundjeri people. “Maximising the potential of each student” is our living motto.
Kambrya College prides itself on being a school with high expectations of all students and all staff. The College offers quality pathways for students wishing to pursue academic or vocational pathways. Excellent VCE results continue to be achieved. Having achieved a VCE Median Study Score of 30 in 2015, we rank in the top 20% of government schools in Victoria. The College also offers an outstanding range of accredited vocational certificate studies in Hospitality, Sport and Recreation, Plumbing, Hair and Beauty Services to compliment the VCAL program. Destination data shows that almost every student leaves the College with a valuable qualification.
Kambrya College celebrates diversity. Students and staff originate from 47 different countries.

Our new International Program for foreign students, together with the Intensive English Language Program, is growing rapidly.

Cultural visits and exchange programs take place with our sister schools each year.
There are many exciting projects in the pipeline. A Select Entry Accelerated Program for gifted and high achieving students was introduced in 2015. This program continues to develop strongly. Work is being undertaken to establish 21st Century Learning Skills and to become a more Asia Literate school.
