What does Kalianna offer my child?
Our school provides a secure learning environment where your child can flourish and develop their skills alongside peers who share similar academic levels.
Do you offer after school care and school holiday program?
In 2018, Kalianna School was fortunate to receive state government funding, enabling us to offer an Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) program to our students and families. This program is expertly managed by Lifely, and we invite you to contact Sally Bush at 5442 1311 for additional details on enrolment.
Can my child catch a bus to school?
Certainly. To arrange transportation for your child, kindly complete a bus travel form and schedule a consultation with our bus coordinator, Sarah Whytock to coordinate the pickup and drop-off times and location.
What do I need to buy my child for class?
Rest assured that all essential learning materials will be provided to your child and you're not required to provide these.
Can my child attend Kalianna and another school? (Dual enrolment)
Certainly, we would be happy to discuss this further during the enrollment process at Kalianna. Please note that this is a service that we can provide.

Do you offer any financial assistance?
The Department offers financial assistance through the Camps, Sports and Excursion Fund (CSEF) to families who hold healthcare cards. This funding can be used to cover expenses associated with any camps, sports, or excursions that your child may participate in. Additionally, State Schools Relief (SSR) may be able to provide support with uniform costs. If you are interested in exploring your eligibility for this assistance, please speak with our office staff for further guidance.
