Meet the Kilmore International School Principal


In April 1990, The Kilmore International School opened its doors to four students. Now there are more than 400 students from Year 3–12 who are nurtured and guided to meet the challenge of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB) in the final two years of schooling. Students from around the world choose TKIS for its international education and track record of academic achievement.

Principal, Mr Andrew Taylor, believes an international education equips students to be future-ready and prepares them for university and successful careers wherever they end up.

“The students are guided by the IB which cultivates the attributes needed for living in the 21st century: they strive to be more Reflective and Open-minded; they take Risks ; they approach life in a Caring and Balanced manner; they seek to become Knowledgeable as Inquirers and Thinkers; they are Communicators; and above all, they are Principled and act with Integrity,” says Mr Taylor.

The Kilmore International School has an impressive record of academic success in the IB Program. The school’s inspiring, experienced and highly qualified teachers enjoy an exceptional relationship with their students, many of whom will attend leading global universities.

“Like many of its students and teachers, I was drawn to The Kilmore International School because of its reputation for superior academic results and innovation. Our motto and mission, “Excellentia Academica Persequenda” determines our practice: the pursuit of academic excellence”.

As a boarding school and home to students from around the world, pastoral care lies at its heart. The wellbeing leaders and homeroom teachers know their students very well. They provide a rich variety of co-curricular activities to foster experiential learning and leadership.

Mr Taylor says each year, students are recognised in the Commencement and Prize-giving Ceremony with various school-based leadership and community awards such as: the Mitchell Shire Leadership Award, McEwen Leadership Award, Euroa Electorate Leadership Award, ADF Long Tan leadership Award, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme and Sam De Gabrielle Service Award (CAS). These awards celebrate the nature of service and leadership, seeking to build the connections between individuals and their communities.

“I invite you to visit our school to discover why The Kilmore International School will give you the start you need in life,” says Mr Taylor.
