History of Killara High School

Welcome to Killara High School's Archive page

We respectfully acknowledge that this school is located on the Country of the Dharug and Guringai peoples, who are the traditional custodians and leaders of this land.

We recognise the strength, resilience and capacity of Aboriginal Peoples and their relationship with the land on which we learn and lead.

We acknowledge and respect continuing Aboriginal culture and its contribution to the life of this community and region.

We celebrate the ongoing influence that community can have on young leaders today.

We would also like to pay respect to our elders past, present and emerging, and extend that respect to all Aboriginal peoples present.

The Beginnings

“The school acknowledges and celebrates it’s heritage in Public Education through it’s links with the former North Sydney Technical High School (and their predecessor schools), from which came Killara High School’s founding Principal, Mr T.E. Hornibrook and the first collection of the Lion Library.”
