About Kawana Waters State College
Kawana Waters State College is a co-educational Queensland Government State School offering education from Prep to Year 12 on two adjacent campuses, separated by an environmental wetland area. The College is situated on the coastal strip between Mooloolaba and Caloundra on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, approximately 100km north of Brisbane. The College is set between the Pacific Ocean and the world class sports and rowing precincts of Stockland Park and Lake Kawana. Across Lake Kawana, the College forms part of the vibrant and innovative health and business precinct including the soon to be built Sunshine Coast University Hospital which will employ up to 3500 people in allied health and ancillary services. Close partnerships with this precinct, the University of the Sunshine Coast and Education Queensland International mean that academic pathways and international perspectives are abundant at Kawana Waters State College. Kawana Waters State College and on-site Kindergarten strive to make this precinct the educational experience of choice for young people aged 4 to 18 on the Sunshine Coast.
