Captains’ Message

Welcome to the Killara High School website.

Having grown up as active and enthusiastic students at Killara High School, we have always been encouraged to do our best, get involved and make the most of opportunities. It is this aspect of the Killara culture which motivates students and strengthens our community and we feel privileged to be able to serve this ‘great school close to home’ as the 2019 school captains.

Killara’s various leadership opportunities in the Arts, Social Justice, SRC and Sports allow students to grow individually, encourage school spirit, raise awareness and develop relationships with other communities including charitable foundations. Some of our own leadership experiences include visiting state parliament, engaging with local community members and starting student welfare programmes. Other extra-curricular opportunities at Killara range from sports knockout competitions to a multitude of arts ensembles, clubs and activities allowing students to build relationships and memorable experiences. We would both agree that our own participation in these programs and the relationships and memories we have created, have very much enriched our school experience.

If you happen to see either of us at any of the upcoming tours or open days, we are always keen to talk about our school community.
