A message from Killara High School's first Principal:
“Our School has opened with an enrolment of 480 pupils in three forms and fourteen classes. The appreciation shown by the children of the modern buildings and pleasant grounds is a firm foundation on which they will now create a prestige school based on their enthusiasm, their academic ability and the commendable send of community responsibility.
The School Council recently elected by the pupils is now discussing, among other matters of school government, the selection of a badge and motto…..
I am confident that this – the first message I am privileged to write for the school journal – will be the precursor of many, each expressing more pleasure in the achievements and progress of our Killara High School.”
