Our Past propels our Future

"We do not teach subjects, we teach children. Our focus is to introduce them to a Christian worldview where God is in charge, directing us about how to live."  Rev. Joe Westlake – College founder

Heathdale flower About

We opened our doors in 1982, after years of preparation by Reverend Joe Westlake and a group of dedicated Christian parents. These parents wanted their children taught on the basis of a Christian worldview, where teachers would see them as a parent does; as individuals, each with their own unique, God-given potential. The purpose, mission, values and quality statements of our College were born out of this foundational belief. 

We owe our founding families a deep debt of gratitude. We honour those who faithfully heard and responded to the call from God to establish our College. We thank God for His continued and gracious guidance, encouragement and provision in the growth and development of the College over many years.

Investing in the Future

The acknowledgement and appreciation of our history propels us forward to grow and invest in our College. By the grace of God, our Board and Staff are constantly striving in all areas to develop and invest in:

  • The development of our students through the curriculum, subjects and programs which provide opportunities for each student according to his or her God-given gifts and talents
  • The development of our teachers and staff through personal development training, to equip them to support, guide and meet the needs of our students and the College
  • Infrastructure to enable learning and teaching with state of the art facilities
  • Developing opportunities and programs for students to serve God locally and globally

College Logo

Within the oval ground there are three elements which remind us that the college is part of the total education of the child in cooperation with the home and the church.

The leaf within the oval is emblematic of the growing child sheltered within the protection of a caring environment.

The white ground suggests the light in which the plant grows. The source of this light is the revelation of God as found in the Bible.

The 'h' (for Heathdale) on the right forms a shape reminiscent of a stone tablet, a symbol of the revelation God gave to Moses. It also represents both a path leading through the darkness to the light and a door opening to give entrance into the light.

The lettering forms a lacework of interconnected forms, a reminder that we live in a community of mutual dependence.

The College colours are symbolic also:

  • Red is suggestive of the atonement and is thus appropriately surrounding the whole.
  • White is the colour of purity and holiness which is the goal of Christian living.
  • Blue is the colour of sovereignty and is a reminder that we are all, parents, teachers and students, subjects of Christ's royal authority.
