Principal's Welcome


Welcome to Kapunda High School, an exceptional school steeped in a strong academic culture, rich traditions and long history of providing world-class education for generations of young people, stretching back over 100 years.  

We are a unique school, founded on the generosity of Entrepreneur and Philanthropist Sir Sidney Kidman and set in a learning environment where every student can achieve, grow and thrive.

Based in an idyllic country-setting, our school provides a wide range of learning programs and facilities which prepare our students to lead successful futures and lives.

Our learning programs are innovative, inclusive and entrepreneurial. Some Curriculum areas we specialise in include: Academic pathways, Trade skills & pathways, Arts and Agricultural programs.

We build strong and collaborative school & industry partnerships to give our students real-world experience and prepare them for a successful future in a career they aspire to. Many of our graduates have gone on to achieve excellence and fulfilment in their chosen field.   

We offer a rich Curriculum including physical and practical learning programs and provide strong student support through our Learning Hub and Student Wellbeing Centre. Sports and success in regional sporting competitions also form part of the fabric of our school.  

Our School House system recognises and rewards students for excelling in their studies and modelling our school values.         

The quality education of our young people is perhaps the largest investment that our society can make and this is central to our mission.   

I look forward to welcoming and working in partnership with you.
