Each year SCIL hosts many hundreds of educators and leaders from around Australia and the world, who come to see a post-industrial model of schooling for themselves at Northern Beaches Christian School in Terrey Hills in Sydney.
Our Snapshot Tours give visitors a taste of the rich learning environment at NBCS; a combination of re-imagined physical space, learner-owned technology, personalised learning, collaboration and innovation.
Snapshot Tours run for 1.5 hours. RSVP is essential.
Due to high demand, we request that no more than 3 people per school participate on a tour. For larger groups, please consider a full ‘Immersion Day’ where we take your team behind the scenes and into the change journey itself.

The Zone – The shared Stage 3 (Years 5-6) learning area has had a significant redevelopment. This is a prime example of reconfiguring and transforming an inherited or existing space to facilitate open plan learning. There are LCD screens, walls that you can write on, big square bean bags, lime green sofas and a wide set of stairs that are used as a gathering area and as working space.
Community Sports Centre – As a result of the BER grant, NBCS has been able to create an indoor sports centre, with multi-use basketball court, gym, outdoor seating and learning areas with a great view of the beach volleyball court, and a multimedia research centre specifically for primary – a bookless, wired and wi-fi zone. Underneath the Community Sports Centre we are also developing a new TAS area set against the beautiful bushland backdrop.
Rhythm & Blues – Specialised learning space for Music focused on cultivating student communities of practice
