Welcome to Clonard

Clonard College Geelong is a Kildare Education Ministries Catholic school in the Brigidine tradition. Located in Herne Hill, Clonard educates approximately 920 students. The educational experience at Clonard is more than an academic journey. It is an education that nurtures young women to embody our College motto ‘ strength and kindliness’. It is an education where the spirituality of our students is fostered. Our students’ strengths are known, cultivated and celebrated through a broad range of opportunities and extracurricular offerings. 

Everybody is a somebody at Clonard. We place equal importance on care for students’ wellbeing and their academic learning success. A Clonard education gives our young women a sense of social justice and a voice to make a difference in the world. It is an education where the leaders of tomorrow are formed. It is an experience where friendships are formed for life. Our motto ‘Strength and Kindliness’ gives a sense of our mission, and we strive to develop in young women the capacity to understand and contribute to the world.

Clonard College promotes the safety, wellbeing and inclusion of all students.
