Protecting children in our care

Heathdale Christian College has a zero tolerance of child abuse. We have developed a Child Protection Policy, Procedure and a Code of Conduct. All employees, volunteers and contractors working with children in our care must abide by these policies and practices. Our aim is to protect children from abuse and embed a culture of safety. We completely reject any action or behaviour that results in the abuse of a child who is part of our community. As image-bearers of God, we want every student to flourish in all aspects of their life and for all children to feel loved and respected. As we work in partnership together, this responsibility and commitment needs to be owned by all of us.

The College has appointed the Assistant Principals, the Kindergarten Educational Leader and Student Chaplains as the Child Safety Officers.  

If you have any concerns in this area, please make contact to these staff at the link below or by contacting our office.

Parent Partnership

Partnering with parents is a central component of our College. We recognise that, as part of God’s design, family is important and that God gives parents the responsibility to care for, discipline and instruct their children. Within this partnership,our staff act as 'parent delegates' to students when they are in our care.

We endeavour to provide an open, welcoming and safe environment for all. We believe that parents and guardians are valuable contributors in our community and we aim to work in partnership with them in the care and growth of each student.

A mutually respectful relationship is transparent enough to articulate expectations of each other. Our Parent Code of Conduct outlines the way in which the College expects all parents/guardians to conduct themselves when visiting a College campus, participating in College activities and communicating with members of our community. It encompasses students, staff and other parents and guardians.
