“I am excited to be given the opportunity to establish and grow this school, alongside the families of Alkimos”, said Mr. Chisholm.

“Northshore will embrace the culture of the area, helping to shape a bright and positive future for our children and the wider community.

“I look forward to working closely with parents to build a school that delivers on all aspects of education; from academic success to sports prowess, accomplishment in the arts and second-to-none pastoral care.

 “Above all, because we know that students learn best when they are happy, I am keen to craft a school environment in which students actually love being and growing,” Mr. Chisholm said.

With Broderick Architects appointed, buildings designed and ground works underway, the school will be ready for its first intake of students in 2017.

“We are pleased to be able to serve a new community in the Northern Beaches,” said Mr. Lee.

“A large amount of thought that has gone into creating optimal learning spaces, it will be exciting to see Stage 1, encompassing the Early Learning Centre and first Primary School buildings, come to life,” he said.

Enrolments for the school are now open. For more information, phone 1300 388 905 or visit
