Heritage College Perth is a small school with a big difference. Our caring environment allows students to be treated as individuals, and their needs to be identified and met. We aim to provide high quality education and to support parents in their role of raising their children. We promote Godly values of honesty, diligence, excellence, respect and discipline.
Thanks to the support of our community of parents and friends, our College has developed and matured into a unique environment for students to learn and grow.
We were very privileged this past week to have had a visit by Shirley Fisher, a professional West Australian artist best known for her seascapes and landscapes in soft pastel, especially her pictures of Rottnest. This tied in with our school camp where students had the opportunity to photograph images suited for their own project.
The 7-10 students enjoyed an art incursion on Wednesday 11/11/2015 as part of their current painting project on Australian seascapes from earliest examples to contemporary. Shirley Fisher explained her work and techniques and demonstrated the whole process using her own photo taken south of Cape Leeuwin. She then assisted students to apply the technique in the classroom and shared her expertise.
Students made an excellent and enthusiastic start and clearly enjoyed the inspiring experience. We hope to share their artworks when they have had time to complete them.

In 2009 I was lucky enough to enrol my daughter, who has a disability, in Heritage College Perth. She had been bullied and was shy but now through the help and support of the school she has been able to reach her full potential. At the time I enrolled my daughter we were not Christadelphians but the love and support that they have showed us and the christian truth that they live in their day-to-day lives have brought us to God.”

Heritage has been a wonderful environment for our daughter who has been at Heritage since its commencement in 2006. The positive teaching staff, environment and friendships she has developed have been of great benefit to help her reach her goals and potential.”

We are so blessed to have a school like Heritage College to send our children to every day. Our children have been able to really flourish in a Godly environment. It is also wonderful that we as parents are able to have input into this school each and every day. The principal and teachers are always ready to have a chat if you feel you need to speak to them. Our children feel safe coming to HCP and as it is a small school the families get to know each other well and hold similar values.”
