Kristy Kendall (Principal, Toorak College)
Toorak College has been achieving excellence and inspiring students since 1874. The school is dedicated to the holistic development of students, and nurtures and supports their interests and growth across academic, wellbeing, leadership, social justice and co-curricular areas, allowing them to thrive and achieve their personal best.
From our unique seaside campus we provide students with a world-class education. We welcome girls and boys from ELC (Early Learning Centre) to Year 4, with a girls-only approach to learning from Year 5 onwards. Toorak College is also a boarding school, providing high-quality full-stay and short-stay boarding facilities for both local and international female students. All students have the very best quality teaching coupled with access to the resources they need to achieve their best in whatever field they choose.
Toorak College graduates are spirited, well-rounded and resilient. As adults, they continue to strive for their personal best and pursue their passions with confidence.
The school in Old Mornington Road, Mt Eliza, has an annual turnover of about $23 million. It employs 210 people, 80% of whom live locally. In late 2017 Toorak College had 838 students.
“Toorak College is proud to support and work alongside the Committee for Greater Frankston. We’re passionate about nurturing curious minds and creating world-ready graduates. This region has so much to offer and with even more job opportunities, particularly in the health, science and technology fields, our students will feel inspired for the next challenge that awaits them.” – Principal Kristy Kendall
