Downlands College 2023 Report
Stephen Koch, Principal

Downlands College is an independent, Catholic, coeducational day and boarding school with a long tradition of heart-centred and values-based education.  Situated in the regional city of Toowoomba at the centre of a prosperous rural community, Downlands provides a full range of facilities often only found in large cities.  The College is nestled in 38 hectares of landscaped grounds, with historic buildings and modern facilities, including a performing arts centre; dance, drama and film studios; indoor sports centre; a flourishing Rural Centre; seven ovals; and a heated 50 metre outdoor pool.

Downlands College acknowledges and embraces the diverse heritage, cultures and backgrounds of our students, staff and broader school community.  The development of strong, life-giving relationships forms the cornerstone of a Downlands education, and our unique MSC heritage ensures that the Downlands journey is intertwined with an ‘education of the heart’.  A focus on relationships allows our core values of love, courage, compassion, understanding and humility to be woven through all our interactions.

The Downlands College Indigenous program includes 90 students in 2023, comprising of day and boarding students from Prep to Year 12.  The students are supported and educated via pathways to attain formally recognised qualifications when they graduate from School.

Downlands College continues to provide increasing opportunities for all Downlands students, staff and families to access and celebrate Indigenous culture and acknowledge Indigenous history.  These aims have been facilitated through the inclusion of Indigenous perspectives into the teaching and learning curriculum.  Downlands College continues to celebrate school events involving the AIEF Scholarship Students.
