Canteen Closed

Canteen will no longer be operating for the time being. Please ensure your child/ren bring lunch and snacks with them to school each day.

CCTV In Use at Both Campuses

Effective this year, we now have CCTV cameras operating in all areas of our College, at both campuses and on our buses.

We believe the safety of our students, staff, parents and facilities is of utmost importance and feel the addition of cameras at Officer (and NWS since prior to 2019) will be beneficial.

Drink Bottles

Please ensure your child/ren bring their own drink bottles to school with their name CLEARLY labelled, as the bubblers are not in use due to Covid-19. 

Thank you for your cooperation.

School Banking

Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding coronavirus, the School Banking program will remain on hold. 

 

In the meantime, here are some handy online resources for parents who wish to maintain momentum with their child’s financial education: 

  • Start Smart: these resources have been created to improve children’s money management skills, and is aligned to the Australian Curriculum and the National Consumer Financial Literacy Framework.
  • The Beanstalk: offers videos and fun activities for children to learn about money.

2021 Sibling Enrolments

Families, it’s time to think about Early Years enrolments for 2021 (3 and 4 Year Old Kinder and Prep classes). As siblings of existing students are priority enrolments, it's important that we know and account for all incoming siblings in these foundational classes of the college. Once your child is enrolled in Prep, there is no need to re-enrol as the enrolment is automatically retained each year until graduation.

 

Families of the college are priority enrolments for the Early Learning Centre. If your child turns 3 or 4 next year, complete this Google Form to update us with your intention to enrol. Secure your place before the public intake begins.

 

Please call 03 9796 0100 or contact me directly to discuss your child’s enrolment for next year by email: enrolments@heritagecollege.vic.edu.au.

Uniform in Secondary

It is of vital importance proper uniform is worn each day. It not only shows respect for the college, but it also shows respect for one’s self.

 

We have seen some students arriving at school with mixing and matching sports and formal, as well as wearing non-uniform elements. Thank you for your continued vigilance in sending your child in proper uniform each day. If your child is out of uniform for any reason, please send a written note for your child's homeroom teacher.
