College Principal’s Message

At Essendon Keilor College, we’re passionate about each student’s progress at every age and stage of their unique learning journey. We want them to know how to achieve peak performance now so they can enjoy life and continue to thrive in the world of study and work they graduate into. It’s a world in which emotional intelligence, a growth mindset, creativity, adaptability and an ethical framework matters as much, if not more, as the knowledge and skills brought to any context. That’s why an Essendon Keilor College education is purposeful, personal, positive, practical and principled.

Our continued response to meeting the needs of 21st century learners is generating real excitement across the community. It’s noticeable because it’s making the positive difference we’re after. It’s not just about our new buildings and facilities, the exceptional leaders and teachers we’re hiring, our explicit values driven culture, the programs we’ve launched, or the broad ranging opportunities we provide – it’s about their combined impact. Together they’re powerful and are signaling that something new, something special is happening at EKC.

We invite you to be part of this exciting chapter in our long, successful history; part of the vibrant, dynamic community partnering with us to achieve our purpose: the development of accomplished citizens who contribute, live meaningfully and succeed.

I trust that having browsed this website you’re inspired to visit one of our three wonderful campuses. It’s the best way for you to experience our unique spirit and discover the outstanding, holistic, future-focused education we offer. It will also give you the chance to hear directly from our students about their positive learning experiences at the school.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

College Principal
