Heathdale Christian College VIC


The Executive Principal of Heathdale Christian College is calling for “Expressions of Interest” from experienced Christian educators for the senior leadership position of Head of Melton Campus, situated on the western edge of Melbourne.

Heathdale Christian College is a large, well established and highly regarded school operating over two campuses. The main campus of more than 1200 students is situated in Werribee. The Melton campus was acquired in 2014 and the school is looking for a dynamic, relational, visionary leader to build a strong Christian school in an area that has a rapidly growing, multi-cultural population. Currently, the Melton Campus offers Prep to Year 6 with an enrolment of 100 students. In time, it is expected that the Melton campus will develop into a Kinder to Year 12 School and the current site and buildings at Melton allow for this anticipated growth. So this is a very exciting opportunity for the right person to lead a ‘young’ campus into its next substantial stage of development with the strong support of Heathdale in Werribee.

Preferably no later than the beginning of Term 1, 2018, but a starting date, earlier or later, is negotiable.

The Head of Melton Campus is directly responsible to the Executive Principal of Heathdale Christian College, Ross Grace, and is a member of the Executive Principal’s senior leadership team.

The applicant should be able to demonstrate in their expression of interest that he or she is:

  • A committed and active follower of Jesus Christ.
  • A visionary leader with a heart for and an understanding of Christian Education.
  • An experienced and successful leader, preferably in a Christian environment
  • A relational leader with team building and mentoring skills.
  • A culture builder within the school and the wider community.
  • A very capable educational practitioner with a strong focus on teaching and learning
  • A competent manager in areas such as finance, staffing, planning and policy.

A Position Description is attached.

Please send an “Expression of Interest” - including a resume, reflections on the demonstrated requirements as noted above and the names of three referees (two professional, one pastoral) to the Christian Education National (CEN) Consultant assisting Heathdale Christian College, through the CEN administrator: melinda.storm@cen.edu.au Applications close at 5pm on Friday 11 August 2017.
