Our school

From 2017, Kepnock State High School is an Independent Public School. This gives us greater autonomy and flexibility in relation to our core business and allows us to pursue greater levels of innovation and excellence for our clients.


Situated within Bundaberg’s coastal strip, Kepnock High offers a comprehensive curriculum that caters for the full range of students including those with tertiary aspirations, vocational training needs and general personal and employability skills and development.

Through our school vision for ‘a creative, confident and resilient community of learners prepared for the future’, we recognise that while students’ needs are diverse they all need the ability to deal with new and changing situations. Hence, learning opportunities are tailored to address these varying needs.

Our core values are direct but significant: Learning, Responsibility and Respect. Accepting opportunities to learn and working to the best of one’s ability at all times is a great foundation for the future. The values around respect and responsibility are cornerstones for how we view ourselves and others in our school and wider community. Our unique PE@K (Positive Experiences at Kepnock) program builds on these core values to ensure students develop the personal and social skills necessary to be productive and supportive citizens of our world.

Our motto ‘Success is Earned’ is reflected in our belief that every child can achieve success. Through respectful and supportive relationships between parents, teachers and students, every child is encouraged to be the very best they can be.​​​​​
