From the Assistant Principal

Our final week for this school year has been one of celebration across the whole school. Our students have been strong and courageous, and they have been supported by our professional, talented and very hard-working members of staff. I warmly want to thank our Bethany educators for giving with such great energy, creativity and purpose in a very difficult and challenging year.

I also want to acknowledge our wonderful students. It has been said many, many times but this has been the most challenging of years.  I’ve been inspired by your diligence, perseverance and courage in 2021. 

As I reflect on all that has taken place at Bethany this year, I also want to acknowledge the wonderful support from parents the College has received along the way. Remote learning, while definitely challenging, forged an even closer working relationship between school and home, assisting our students to achieve strong educational and personal outcomes during a difficult time. Thank you to all parents for your ongoing support and participation in the life of the College.

I started my journey at Bethany 7 months ago and this time has been one of illumination for me. I am left with no doubt that in some way, every member of this community has let their light shine brightly. Some have cast a light for others to follow safely and many have encouraged the light of another to be seen. Thank you to all the students for making this such a wonderful time and place to be. I look forward to working with you in 2022. 

I wish all our staff, students and their families a joyful, peaceful and safe Christmas.
