Did you know that a new primary school is preparing to open in Kelvin Grove? Compass Independent School offers a unique learning journey for the children as they navigate their daily interactions.



The staff and administration of Compass Independent School have begun moving into their new home in Kelvin Grove, within the QUT Creative Industries Precinct and are awaiting their Non-State Schools Accreditation Board approval. 

Intentionally designed to have a small but multi-age class, the Kelvin Grove site will open in January 2023. For the first year, Compass Independent School has only one class for Prep to Year 5 kids but the school plans to expand to two or three classes as the community grows.

The class will have dedicated teaching teams to help the children discover their potential, skills and habits. The teachers are also trained to impart values like fairness, respect, open-mindedness and self-worth. 

The lessons will follow the Australian Curriculum whilst allowing the children to inquire, create and collaborate. Kids will learn at their comfort level and enjoy the magic of play.

Founder and Teaching Principal, Alicia Gilbert, will conduct family tours for those considering to enrol their children. She will explain the programs and learning spaces, as well as answer the parents’ questions about the new school. The children are enjoined to be with their parents so they can have a first-hand experience of what the school offers.
