About Us

College Principal's Welcome

As one of the very few private coeducational schools on Sydney’s North Shore we are very proud of what our College has to offer to our students and their families, with whom, as a community school, we work in very close partnership.

There is no better way to judge a school than to walk through its gates and gauge the attitude of the students and staff. At Masada College we regularly have visitors comment on the positive vibe they feel in walking into our playground and reception area. We hope to have the opportunity to take you for a tour soon and let you experience it for yourself.

However, prior to making a time to come and visit our campus, we hope that our website will provide you with insights into our focus on the whole child, the importance we place on working together with families, our educational approaches, the many co-curricular opportunities we offer students and our belief that each child is a leader.

Leading Learning, our educational package, has aligned all our programs, nurturing our students to reach their maximum potential both in and out of the classroom, and ensuring we raise responsible individual thinkers with a strong sense of social justice and confidence in their ability to determine their own future.

I hope you will take the time to read about these programs on our website. They include Stephen Covey’s Leader in Me®, the Harvard Culture of Thinking and our Raising Responsibility behavioural management system. The principles of each are equally applicable in the home and in the workplace and are recipes for a productive and successful future.

It is not surprising, with all the opportunities they are offered, that our graduates win scholarships and awards and embark on a diverse range of career paths. We always take a great sense of pride in hearing of their involvement in the community and their successes post school.

Being a Jewish Dayschool we enjoy sharing in the many celebrations on our calendar and linking students to their heritage, instilling in them an understanding and pride in who they are and their roots. Our Jewish values and knowledge is interwoven into our curriculum wherever possible and complements and strengthens our Leading Learning programs. Our extensive elective range in Years 9 and 10 enable students to pursue their areas of strength and interest.

Enjoy navigating our website and email us or phone us with any queries you may have. We look forward to having the pleasure of meeting with you in the near future and introducing you to all that Masada College has to offer.
