Canberra Private Schools introduces Downlands College in Toowoomba, for all your education and learning for your childs future, We invite you to explore and learn more about the quality 21st Century education with Downlands College.
Owned and conducted by the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, Downlands is more than just a school. It does more than just teach reading, writing and arithmetic - although the College is widely recognised for the high standard of its teaching in these and many other areas - but that alone is not the reason why so many parents and students are pleased to have chosen Downlands.
Day students at Downlands are drawn mainly from Toowoomba City and some of the close outlying country areas. There are approximately 500 male and female day students at Downlands.
The 240 odd Downlands' Boarders come from a wide catchment area including diverse cultures; within Queensland, other states of Australia and overseas. Downlands was founded with a special commitment to country families and those families with a challenge of distance and remoteness.
It is this commitment that makes Downlands unique with its understanding of remote families and the challenges that these families face in educating their young people. And it is with this in mind that we welcome students from families who live overseas.
Steeped in history, Downlands College is one of the popular school in the Toowoomba area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
