From the Principal

The College commenced in February 2013, housed in portable classrooms. Our permanent building was completed in October 2013 and we commenced full usage of the new building in the 2014 School year.

Alamanda has been established in mini school precincts with Assistant Principals in charge, and separate year level co-ordinators at each level P-9.

The Preparatory mini school operates more like a “small learning community” informally called “The Burrow” stemming from the schools motto. As the children progress through the school, the organisation becomes more formal. We aspire to be a school renowned as a vibrant community that lives by the school’s motto of ‘Dare to be Wise’ in all our thoughts and actions.

Our ultimate aim is to develop with each student, personal qualities and attitudes that will enable students to face the challenges of their future with confidence. Alamanda College is now formally part of the International Baccalaureate Organisation of Schools (PYP – Primary Years Programme).

In 2014 we embarked the development of a rigourous curriculum for our Middle Years Programme. Our College staff and students look forward to the next phase of our College’s journey.

The Secondary College aspiring building will be completed in 2016 and will house our specialist facilities including gymnasium and a fully-equipped theatre — the journey continues.
