Meet your Heads of House

CHISHOLM – Chris Brand

Chisholm House is where the memories are made. Our students are diverse, with ambitions and talents aplenty, yet within this lies our true strength. A strong House is strong in all areas and is able to rely on the strengths of its individuals to overcome any challenge.  I have the privilege to lead our team of amazing Tutors but I am also our students’ biggest supporter. I’m there to celebrate the highs and I’m there to lift us when things are tough. We stand as one in Chisholm and together we make each other stronger.

FLINDERS – Jo Vanderpol

I hope you are excited to start Year 7. As Head of House I wish to create a House that fosters an optimistic culture and creates the best possible environment for you to flourish.  I oversee the development of student leadership within our House, provide encouragement for House competitions, and am a central point for information relating to Flinders. In 2021, I will be on maternity leave, but Flinders will be in the very capable hands of Mrs Chiu. She will be a great caretaker and hopefully help Flinders win the Trifecta of Swimming, Athletics and House Arts.

LAWRENCE – Lindi Chiu

We are a strong and vibrant house known for our success in all House activities. While we are confident, competitive and determined, Lawrence is characterised by kindness and respect for others as we uphold the School values. I have been the caretaker Head of House for 2020, but will pass on the mantle of leadership to Ms Janelle Mathias next year.  I will be keen to meet all of you and enjoy a bit of friendly House rivalry as we battle for supremacy for the 2021 House shield!

PATERSON – Travis Parker

Paterson is a highly collaborative House that is run by our students, for our students. Students have the opportunity to pursue leadership opportunities throughout their years at TKS and are all highly involved in creating and running House events. We have a strong culture of supporting each other, and we promote a high level of participation in our sporting, artistic and academic pursuits. We have a very dedicated team of Tutors who fully support and encourage all of our students, and I wish to welcome all of our new Year 7s for 2021.
