Girls ‘strong in faith, intellect, character’

A CENTRE of quality Catholic education for girls from Year 7 to Year 12, Bethany College had its beginnings in 1993 when the rich traditions of the Sisters of St Joseph and the Sisters of Charity were combined to meet the educational needs of girls in the St George area.
Principal Robyn Rodwell said staff prided themselves on establishing a warm and welcoming atmosphere where they strived for each girl to feel safe, happy and confident.

She said this, in turn, provided the best learning environment for each girl to grow, with encouragement to set goals to achieve their best in the classroom, in extracurricular activities and in their relationships.
“With a focus on collaboration and continual personal growth, Bethany girls have achieved outstanding HSC results with our College consistently ranked inside the top 100 schools across the State,” Ms Rodwell said.
“Students enjoy a wonderful, modern environment, including a collaborative library space, state-of-the-art facilities for visual arts, dance, music, drama, design subjects and a commercial kitchen as well as multimedia equipment.
“At Bethany, we strive to have young girls develop into young women who are strong in faith, intellect and character and who are always inspired to achieve their personal best.”
Formally acknowledged for the work it does in developing gifted and talented students, Bethany College is also accredited as a Newman Selective Gifted Education Program school over its success at providing a whole-school gifted education program embedded across the curriculum within a nurturing Catholic environment.
