HillSide Christian College is currently governed by a Board under the current chairmanship of Mr Devon Wynne. The Board establishes the strategic directions of the College, administration on specific matters from time to time and endorses College plans and activities as well as providing governance arrangements for the College.
Ordinary Board meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month.
The A.G.M. is held in March by the Association (Church Elders), which oversees whole Church and College operations.
I have been an educator for over 30 years and enjoy my role in assisting students to develop their potential both academically and spiritually. I am blessed to have served HillSide since 2009. I really enjoy working here.
I commenced teacher training in the late eighties at WACAE (now ECU) and achieved a B.A. (Primary Education). During my teacher training, I took time away from my studies and worked in a behaviour management centre. This was invaluable because it gave me an insight into child development and the practicalities of teaching.
Upon completion of my degree, I worked for three years in remote Aboriginal schools. I returned to Perth and taught in a government primary school. In 1998, I received my first promotion to the role of Principal of a country school. I was then successfully appointed to a Deputy Principal’s position in Perth. In 2008, I resigned from the government, and travelled to England where I worked as a teacher in London. I then returned to Australia, and completed a Master of Education in educational leadership in 2009.
Working at HillSide has been a pleasure. It is a role that I cherish and take very seriously. If I can lead children into a deeper relationship with God, help them to grow in all aspects of learning, support staff to work effectively together, and serve the College community, I will be very pleased.
Deputy Principal (Secondary)
I have been involved with Christian education for more than 34 years and I have held various positions across five different Christian schools over these years. As a teacher, I have been blessed to learn from my peers and those in leadership, and I still do.
I have been Deputy Principal of primary, Deputy of a primary and secondary school and Principal of a primary school. My position here at HillSide is a blessing to me as I am able to use my experience and skills gained over many years to contribute towards the growth as I am lead by God each day.
I hold a Diploma of Primary Teaching and a Graduate Diploma in Christian Educational Studies. Prior to taking up my first teaching position in 1984, I have held various positions within the workforce, however, the position I enjoyed the most was being a member of the Western Australian Police Force.
HillSide is a College that makes a strong stand for Christ in the education sector and I feel privileged to be called to serve the staff, families and students at a time such as this, in this place.
Deputy Principal (Primary)
I have been at HillSide since 1999 (with the exception of a few years off to have my daughter). I first came to HillSide, then known as Forrestfield Christian Primary School, as a practice teacher in my last year of teaching at Edith Cowan University. I instantly felt at home and fell in love, with not only the beautiful natural surroundings, but also with the Christ-centred community of staff and families.
I hold a Bachelor of Education (Primary) with a specialisation in children with special needs. I am hugely passionate about Christian education and in building Christ-centred Christian communities. I love teaching and I am constantly amazed at how children learn, develop and grow. I love seeing God work in the lives of people in our school and love celebrating students’ accomplishments and spiritual growth. I believe all children can learn and that each child is created with unique gifts and talents.
During my time at HillSide, I have taught in various positions across the Early Childhood and Primary. I have also been the SAER and Curriculum coordinator and I am currently privileged to be in the Deputy Principal position. Working at HillSide is an absolute pleasure – it is not just a workplace, but a family, and one I am honoured to be in.
