Welcome to the Killarney Heights Public School website. Killarney Heights Public School is situated in a safe and quiet suburb in northern Sydney which is surrounded by national parks. The school has well manicured grounds, excellent facilities and large playing areas for the students. We are a dynamic and growing school currently catering for a student population of almost 700.
The school has a unique French/English bilingual program which has recently been awarded the Label Franc’Education by the French government. This is an official world-wide accreditation which recognises our bilingual program as genuine excellence. Killarney Heights Public School is the first school in Australia to receive this award and one of only 25 schools in the world. According to the principles of total bilingualism, students have two qualified teachers; an Australian teacher, and for half the day every day, a native French speaking teacher.
Our teachers are highly qualified and committed to quality education. A strong professional learning community ensures teachers are equipped to teach the skills, knowledge and literacies essential for 21st Century learning. Our school is committed to providing rich programs to develop skills in critical thinking, problem solving, communication, collaboration and technology to enable all students to reach their full potential educationally, socially and emotionally. Our staff ensure that all students find school a secure, happy and challenging adventure. If you would like more information on our school priorities please read our Strategic School Plan below:
The school has a very active Parent and Citizens' Association who support the school to update facilities, and purchase the latest technology and resources. We value parents as partners in their children’s learning and encourage participation by parents in all aspects of school life.
I am proud to be the Acting Principal of this unique primary school in northern Sydney and would be happy to meet with you to discuss our programs and wonderful educational opportunities.
