Principal’s Welcome 2020
A very warm welcome back to all students and families returning for 2020 at Heritage College, Officer and Narre Warren South campus locations. We hope that you have enjoyed the break and had some time to spend with family and friends.
Firstly, we extend our thoughts - and especially prayers - to those who have been affected by the bushfire activity throughout Victoria, NSW and South Australia over the holiday period. We give thanks to the wonderful volunteers of the Fire Services and all emergency services personnel as they perform recovery efforts and support communities on the ground to rebuild. We encourage you to direct your support towards the CFA at this time. If you have a local brigade in your area, you can follow the links to donate directly to support the brigade of your choice here: https://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/about/supporting-cfa.
Turning our thoughts to the coming year, If you attended Registration Day, you will have signed and updated important documentation for your child. If you haven’t received these items, please be sure to send a quick email to email@example.com and one of our friendly staff can ensure that you receive the necessary documents to sign.
Our Heritage College community grows! To accommodate enrolment growth, we welcome many new faces to our teaching faculty and support staff. We will introduce them officially via the newsletter as their biographies are available this year, so keep an eye on the newsletter. Say hello if you see some new faces on campus and make them feel welcome!
This term, we have some whole school announcements to make. These include the redevelopment of the Primary facilities at Officer, and extending the Narre Warren South campus to provide care for children 3-5 Years Old in the new Early Learning Centre and a new canteen provider. More information will be provided as it comes to hand, so be sure to stay up to date with the latest campus news via the newsletter and social media.
As a community, our values of Excellence, Resilience, Respect & Service shape all that we do - in teaching practice, in service delivery, in achieving results. We give thanks and praise to our God for providing so many blessings upon the Heritage College family last year and we look forward to continuing to see God work in a mighty way this year. We also look forward to strong academic results and seeing our student body develop and exhibit the College values in the coming year.
Here’s to a great year ahead in 2020!
Mr Sonny Aiono
