Welcome to Heathmont College, I am proud to introduce our school to you.

Students are at the centre of all that we do here at Heathmont College. We aim to foster student development and growth through a focus on student engagement, empowerment and learning in order to support students to achieve their very best in all that they do.

During these uncertain times, it is vitally important that schools focus on supporting students to develop strategies to navigate the unknowns in the world around them and to build resilience in order to manage uncertainty and challenge. As a lead school in the Maroondah Positive Education Network, Heathmont College aims to do exactly this through developing growth mindsets in our students and our staff and leveraging this to enhance resilience across the school by focusing on student and staff strengths. By developing student skills in managing adversity, we empower them to lead their best lives.

Principals Report

Today marks the end of the first semester of learning for 2024 and it has been a great way to finish off the term. It was wonderful to see the college community spirit in action today at lunchtime with two key fundraising activities being held to raise awareness and funds for both the RSPCA and Cancer Research. These two events have been almost entirely student driven and supported by a great team of staff. I would especially like to shout out to the staff who willingly allowed themselves to be ‘soaked’ or to shave their heads for a good cause. I know the students very much appreciated their efforts and the amount of funds raised as a result is nothing short of impressive. Look out for articles about the fun that was had later in this edition of the Gazette as well as on our Facebook page and other social media accounts. 

Across the term, we have seen many wonderful student and staff achievements with sporting teams winning many matches and competitions, debating teams being triumphant over much larger schools with more resources, many of our instrumental music students performing for friends and family in our new Performing Arts Centre and staff receiving awards for their studies in education.

“Acknowledgment of Country” by students at Heathmont College

Hello and Wominjeka.

Wominjeka means ‘Welcome’ in Woiwurrung language of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation.

On behalf of Heathmont College, we would like to note that since the dawn of time, the sacred land on which our school is situated Always Was and Always Will Be Wurundjeri land. We would like to pay our respects to the traditional custodians who are guardians of this land, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, and we acknowledge their Ancestors, Elders, Youth and Children; past, present and those of the future within their community.

We recognise the many diverse and ongoing living cultures of all First Nations people of Australia. It’s with appreciation we see their perseverance, strength and value their deep continuing spiritual connection to Country, Community, Animals, Skies, Stars and Waterways, as they belong to the oldest living culture in the world. The Heathmont College community is dedicated to embracing First Nation’s history and cultures by fostering respectful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people built on co-operation and trust. We all come from different places though we must work together on this shared learning journey to enrich our understandings and celebrate First Nation’s people and their cultures.

This land was never ceded, it Always Was and Always Will Be Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander land.
