Meridan State College

Meridan State College is located in a western suburb of Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast, within walking distance of the beach. The school is a Prep to Year 12 College, covering all grades from preschool to senior high school.  A dense rainforest separates the buildings of the Primary school from those of the older students and creates a very beautiful and nature-loving atmosphere.

Meridan State College is still relatively young, but has already earned the reputation of a high performance school that attaches great importance to excellence in teaching and high standards of behavior. In terms of content, the focus is on economic and technological subjects as well as sports, music and dance. Outside of the regular classes there is a dance program for which you must first qualify,  with smaller or larger ensembles performing at school events or even taking part in national competitions.

For international students there are opportunities every term for excursions lasting several days. Internationals can travel to Sydney or get to know exciting places like Fraser Island. You can also choose from a three-day trip to the Tangalooma Island Resort on Moreton Island, including snorkeling over a shipwreck and feeding dolphins in the wild.
