Major Dafna leaves a lasting impression on students

Our Senior School hosted Dafna, a survivor of the Be’eri Massacre and a dedicated member of the Israeli Air Force. Her resilience and determination left a lasting impression on our students. Major Dafna emphasised the resilience of the Israeli people and their commitment to rebuilding, urging us to play a crucial role in keeping their stories alive. Thank you to the United Israel Appeal for bringing Dafna to share her story.

Kindergarten 100 Days of Learning!

Today was an incredibly exciting day in our Kindergarten class as they celebrated 100 days of learning! We are bursting with pride for our youngest Junior School students and all they have achieved in their first 100 days of primary school education. They had a blast dressing up as 100-year-old versions of themselves, enjoyed activities centered around the number 100 and decorated biscuits.
Seeing these little learners grow and excel in Kindergarten has been such a joy! Mazal Tov, Masada College Kindergarten!

Senior School Athletics Carnival

We enjoyed another fabulous Senior School Athletics Carnival! The perfect winter’s day blessed us with ideal conditions and our students’ enthusiasm and high levels of participation were fantastic. With the active involvement of our dedicated staff and exceptional House Captains, along with our talented athletes and an amazing venue, we couldn’t be more fortunate!

Welcome Mrs Gunasekara

Masada College is thrilled to announce the appointment of Mrs Karen Gunasekara as the new Head of Junior School. Well known in the Masada community, Karen taught at the College between 2016 and 2019. With extensive experience in leading and educating across a range of school contexts both in Australia and in the United Kingdom, Karen is a highly respected educator.

Karen’s passion for driving whole school improvement is evident through her commitment to ongoing learning, as she embarks on completing ‘The National Flagship’ program at the Association of Independent Schools (AIS). She is dedicated to growing as a leader and inspiring leadership in others.

My philosophy centers around inclusion, empowerment and positive relationships where the dignity and rights of all are respected. I am committed to making a positive contribution to Masada College Junior School and ensuring that each child’s experience of their early years and primary education is a distinct and meaningful time in their life, not simply a journey into adulthood.”
