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 – 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 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!

LAWRENCE – Janelle Mathias

Lawrence House prides itself on fostering positive interactions and creating valuable connections between every member of the House. Students respect one another and are supported and encouraged to always challenge themselves and give their personal best. It is an absolute pleasure to lead Lawrence House and see teamwork, participation and House spirit develop through the activities that take place throughout the course of the year and become such a significant part of each student’s everyday life at The Knox School. Our student’s personal growth and achievements are celebrated and their positive contribution recognised and valued. The unity that exists in our House creates wonderful camaraderie and is pivotal in cultivating a strong sense of House pride and culture. Lawrence House strive to dominate and enjoy sharing in their successes as a one.

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.
