“Heritage College is a learning and loving community, working together to develop excellent, respectful, resilient, service minded citizens who own their learning and have a flourishing relationship with God."
Heritage College, Values statement, 2016
In 2016, the Heritage College community worked together through parent, student and staff surveys to agree on four values that would undergird all student activity in the college. Students at Heritage College are expected to develop and exhibit these values to others: excellence, resilience, respect, and service.
The Positive Behaviour For Learning (PB4L) Policy at Heritage College seeks to embrace all sections of the community through a structured system of behavioural expectations and outcomes. As a guest to Heritage College, you will see these core values displayed throughout the two campuses.
What are the values?
Excellent Heritage College students always give their best in all they do. “What your hand finds to do, do it with all your might...” Ecclesiastes 9:10
Resilient Heritage College students bounce back in tough times. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13
Respectful Heritage College students think about others before themselves. “Do unto others what you would have them do unto you” Luke 6:31
Service minded Heritage College students, find ways to help others around them. “...serve one another humbly in love.” Galatians 5:13
