Box Hill North is supported by a connected, passionate and committed School Council who continuously look for new and innovative ways to improve our learning environment.  We are currently in the process of implementing a Master Plan; professionally designed by current parents, with intent to provide our students the best access to a quality educational experience.  Key principles of the Master Plan include:

  • Introduction of a central spine to unite all key spaces of school and kindergarten, providing way finding and clarity
  • Enhancing flow between indoor and outdoor areas with verandahs and decks
  • Integration of verandahs and decks with ramps to address level changes and create play and learning opportunities
  • An array of outdoor areas for a variety of play and learning experiences
  • Open up centralised space to create the ‘heart’ of the school and kindergarten
  • Reconfiguration of corridors and general purpose classrooms to create learning commons and more adaptable learning spaces
  • Connection of indoor and outdoor spaces
  • Redevelopment of main entrance
  • Increase number of general purpose classrooms for future growth
  • Reorientation of administration area to central spine
  • Improvement to building performance by upgrading glazing, insulation, ventilation and lighting

Coming Soon…

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.
