Community

At Kilvington, we pride ourselves on our strong sense of community. Our students, staff and parents collaborate to ensure that all our families feel a sense of belonging, connection and support at School.

We view parents as powerful allies in helping educate out students, therefore the development and implementation of community engagement initiatives continues to remain a high priority for School leadership and teachers.

Community events, effective communication, information evenings and regular feedback helps to develop strong links between home and School and thereby empowers parents to be engaged in their child’s learning.

Our active Parents and Friends Association also regularly organised events that involve and engage both the parent and broader community.

Community service is an integral aspect of School life, with all year levels working together to deliver meaningful programs for local and global causes, reflecting the School’s motto – not for our own, but others’ good.

The Kilvington Kelpies running club is open to staff, students (from Year 3) and parents! They meet at the breezeway every Tuesday morning from 7.25am – come rain, hail or sunshine!

Our students are encouraged to develop a community service focus through regular fundraising efforts, and volunteering. This is a particular focus in the Power of 9, Year 9 Curriculum.

This continues after our students leave with an active and dynamic Alumni, the Kilvonians. We are thrilled to see so many former students attending Reunions and other important events, as well as generously supporting fundraising efforts.

Many of our students go on to work in community service roles illustrating the culture of care and love of community at Kilvington.
