Facilities: Killester is located in beautiful grounds and has a range of modern buildings and facilities that cater for the academic, physical, social and spiritual needs of young women.
Curriculum: Students study a common core of subjects from Years 7 to 9 that includes many offerings in major learning areas as well as Religious Education. Year 10 introduces some choice in subjects studied. A wide range of VCE Units 1 to 4 is also available within these same broad areas.
Extra-curricular activities: Girls are encouraged to develop their potential by voluntary participation in a variety of sporting, cultural, academic, community and religious activities. Excursions are considered an integral part of each year’s curriculum and include orientation and outdoor education experiences and retreats.
Student welfare programs: The religious education program and home-room groupings provide the opportunity for girls to learn and grow in a warm, challenging environment that respects the individual.
