Ku-ring-gai High School is a community that values individual worth and the contribution of all its members and we are fortunate to enjoy outstanding community support. Fostering a strong working relationship between students, teachers and parents is at the heart of our ethos, and we firmly believe in promoting mutual respect and an environment that encourages and facilitates achievement.
SRC, Captains and Prefects
The school's Student Representative Council (SRC) consists of a democratically elected group of students from Years 8 to 12. The SRC represents the school with pride and creativity and annually produces a banner statement which reflects their goals and ambitions. The school Captains and Prefects are the leaders of the SRC and are elected by the staff and the senior school. These school leaders have a range of areas of responsibilities including leadership, the environment, school promotion, charity fundraising and promotion of academic studies.
Students involved in the SRC gain excellent leadership qualities that provide them with essential skills in communication, organisation and collaboration.
The SRC gains outstanding experience each year from an annual leadership summit held in North Wahroonga which provides the school with a fresh, positive outlook for the year ahead.
Members of the SRC meet every morning during roll call in order to plan a variety of activities and charity events on behalf of the school.
Previous initiatives include:
North Shore Secondary Partnership
The North Shore Secondary Partnership or NS5 is an innovative partnership between Ku-ring-gai High School, Killara High, Chatswood High and St Ives High School. This partnership aims to enhance and enrich the learning opportunities for students across the five schools whilst celebrating the unique qualities and strengths of each individual school in the partnership.
As part of this regional collaboration, the NS5 have initiated numerous exciting projects in areas such as curriculum sharing, professional networking and mentoring.
As a member of the North Shore Schools Partnership, students at Ku-ring-gai have the opportunity to choose courses that may be offered at another of these schools thereby expanding their curriculum choices.
As a result of the NS5 initiative, students, parents and teachers have experienced a significant change in the thinking and in the opportunities available to enhance the learning opportunities and experiences of young people.
This model of collaboration in the NS5 Partnership, generates innovative thinking, creates learning programs which reflect 21st century thinking and responds to the needs of 21st century learners.
Creative Arts Association
The Creative Arts Association (CAA) supports the school's Creative Arts faculty staff through volunteer, fundraising and promotional activities. Interested parents are encouraged to become involved in school productions, art exhibitions, talent quests, concerts, fundraising events, and performances and exhibitions that display our student talent in the local community. The Creative Arts Association publishes an Annual Creative Arts Events Calendar and Management Plan prior to the commencement of each school year which is freely available to interested parents.
Ku-ring-gai Creative Arts High School is proud to be part of the wider Ku-ring-gai community.
