About Kalianna

Kalianna School is a specialist school situated in Bendigo North catering for students aged 5 to 18 years (Prep to Year 12). The school was established in 1963.

 

Students enrolled at our school travel across many shires to attend, including the Mt Alexander, Loddon and Greater Bendigo Shires.

 

The school curriculum is based on the Victorian Curriculum providing Vocational Education and Training (VET) and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) programs for students in their later years.

Our school motto is to ‘Unite and Inspire’ and our school values of ‘Creative, Inclusive and Positive’ provide the benchmark for all actions that take place in our school community.

 

Since the appointment of Principal Peter Bush, the vision of the school has been to ensure students, when leaving the school, are active and productive members of society and have a desire to continue learning.  Since his appointment the school has become a regional resource for other schools and special needs providers in the wider Bendigo region. To achieve this, the school has undergone major restructure and delivery of its educational programs and has formed important partnerships with other organisations.
