From the Assistant Principal

I wanted to start with something students may see as a little thing, but getting the little things right enables us to do amazing things. I want to bring to your attention the College uniform and ask that you have a conversation with your daughter if one is needed. 

College Uniform

The College uniform is designed to present a positive image of the College to the wider community. I believe the uniform should foster a sense of pride in the way it is worn inside the school and outside in public. It displays a level of support and respect for the College. I encourage our families to do a uniform audit this weekend and attend to any adjustments that may be needed to your child’s uniform, particularly the length of tunics and skirts. These must be worn at the length of the middle knee or below. 

 

Tell Them From Me Survey

Over the last few weeks Bethany College has been participating in an online survey – Tell Them From Me (TTFM). The survey provides us with valuable feedback on what our community thinks about many aspects of school life.

If you are yet to complete the survey, your feedback would be greatly appreciated. The information you provide will be used to maintain our commitment to working together in partnership to further improve student learning and wellbeing at Bethany. 

The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete and you are able to access the parent survey on your computer or mobile device by using the following URL: http://tellthemfromme.com/yx68w

 

Parent/Student/Teacher Interviews

Parent/Student/Teacher interviews will be held at Bethany College for Years 7-10 on Thursday 24 June and Friday 25 June. You will be able to access the Compass booking system from 2.30pm on Thursday 17 June. Bookings will close at 11.00am on Wednesday June 23. 

 

Upcoming Events

Finally, just a reminder about a few events coming up next week. On Tuesday June 15 we have the Year 8 and 9 Study Skills evening and on Wednesday June 16 we have our Dance Showcase. The Dance Showcase is a ticketed event for the families of our Dance students.
