Strength and Kindliness

Founded in 1904, Kilbreda College has been educating young women in the Brigidine tradition for 115 years. With a rich Catholic heritage and strong commitment to the College motto of Strength and Kindliness, Kilbreda students have every opportunity to become women of hope and compassion with a personal commitment to justice and the courage to speak out and respond to the needs of others.

Principal Ms Nicole Mangelsdorf joined the Kilbreda College community at the start of 2016, bringing with her eighteen years of leadership experience in Victorian Catholic secondary schools.

“Together, staff and students at Kilbreda form a collaborative, learning focused community that strives for continuous growth through perseverance and effort. We recognise and value the diversity and unique gifts of our students and encourage and support them to develop into confident and articulate young women. Through exposure to a rigorous learning environment, an extensive co-curricular program and a deep commitment to social justice, our mission is to inspire our students to pursue academic excellence, express their creativity and embrace opportunities for leadership and service.

“We are committed to providing the knowledge, skills and experiences today’s students need to thrive in tomorrow’s world. Rapid changes in technology call for a very different skillset to that of the past. When our students graduate, we want them to leave with a well-developed and transferable skill set and be resilient, critical thinkers, who are flexible and adaptable,” said Ms Mangelsdorf.

Optimal wellbeing and learning are enabled at Kilbreda through an environment that is safe, inclusive and respectful. An extensive transition program supports a smooth and enjoyable transition into the Kilbreda College community. Wellbeing programs across the year levels complement the learning and teaching program in supporting students’ spiritual, academic, social, emotional and physical development.

Unique to Kilbreda is their Year 9 Bridges program, which students undertake one day per fortnight. Over the year, four thematic, interdisciplinary and inquiry-based units are completed. These are designed to develop social competencies and resilience, creative and critical thinking while broadening student understanding of their role as both local and global citizens.

With passionate and skilled teachers, extensive academic and co-curricular opportunities every Kilbreda girl is able to flourish!
