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.
STAGGERED AFTERNOON PICKUP TIMES
We are asking that all parents whose youngest child is in Year 5 or above this year come to school 10 minutes later each afternoon at pick up time. This will allow families with younger children time to take them and leave, and thus ease the congestion in the car park. We would appreciate it if you could explain to your older children that by waiting an extra 10 minutes, the car park will be a safer place for everyone, and there should then be enough parking spaces for everyone.
BUS RUN REVERSALS
Please remember that both Tuesday afternoon and Thursday afternoon are reversed bus runs, meaning that Riverton becomes the first stop and Maddington the last. The reversed times are as follows:
Riverton Leisureplex – 3.45pm Thornlie – Gosnells Hall 4.00pm Gosnells – Rays’ 4.15pm Maddington – Istratoaies’ 4.25pm
Please be at the bus stop at least 5 minutes before these times as traffic conditions vary and we don’t like to leave children unattended.
Tuesday 9th February – Years 7-10 Parent Information Night
On Tuesday 9th February there will be an information night for parents of students in Years 7 – 10, at 7.30pm in the hall. Parents of younger children are also welcome if they are interested to attend. We will be asking staff who teach children in this age group to be there so you can meet them and hear from them.
We will present information on a number of topics relevant to parents of students in years 7-10 including:
Secondary expectations and achievement
Year 7 secondary transition year
Our “No Apologies” love, sex and relationship education programme
This is a great time for you to be informed about your child’s education program, and to ask any questions which you may have.
We look forward to seeing you, God Willing.
Thursday 11th February – 10th Anniversary Committee Meeting
We have a number of people involved in preparing celebrations to mark the completion of our tenth year of operation. If you would like to be a part of the Committee, then you are welcome to come along. Our next meeting will be held on Thursday 11th February at 7.30pm in the hall.
Monday 15th to Friday 26th February – In Term Swimming Years PP-7
All students in Years PP – 7 will be having In Term Swimming lessons from 15th – 26th February 2016, God Willing. Families should have received enrolment forms to fill out – please remember to update their swimming level if they have just completed a level in Vacation Swimming.
If you are unsure of your child’s ability or level, please indicate on the enrolment form so that they can be graded by the In Term Swimming staff.
We are requesting a co-payment to help cover the cost of the pool entry fees and the bus. The Government contributes the cost of the training time itself. If the co-payment will cause your family difficulty, please let us know. Please return your child’s permission form to the classroom teacher as soon as possible.
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.”
