Welcome To Kearnan College, Manjimup

I wish to extend a warm welcome to your family on behalf of our school community.


Kearnan College is a co-educational school catering for students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12. The College was founded by the Sisters of St Joseph in 1925 and has a rich history of providing quality education in the Manjimup area for almost 100 years. The school motto of ‘Seek Truth’ guides our actions and decisions. As a community we seek truth in our relationships, our endeavours and in our care for the environment.


At Kearnan College our students are at the centre of all that we do. We have a strong commitment to providing a safe and harmonious school environment where successful relationships thrive. Our strength lies in the close partnerships between students, staff, parents and the wider community which is highly valued by us all. We promote and develop positive and respectful relationships. Pastoral care is central to life at Kearnan College and is recognised by all within the wider community as a valued feature of our college.


We endeavour to educate our students to develop their knowledge, skills and attitudes to become life-long learners. At Kearnan College our staff aim to prepare young people for the world and the future, so the staff continually look for opportunities to extend learning beyond the classroom, to local resources in the wider community with authentic experiences. Staff work together to create a culture that enables children to be creative, to collaborate, to confidently express themselves, to follow their passions and curiosity and to be organised and resilient learners. We have high expectations that our students work hard, care for each other and contribute to making Kearnan College an outstanding place of learning.


We warmly welcome prospective families at Kearnan College. The best way to choose a school is to see it in action on an ordinary school day. I would be pleased to arrange a personal tour and discuss your child’s educational needs.


Being Principal at Kearnan College brings me much joy and many opportunities for learning and developing relationships. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
