‘Bethany - A place where individuals matter.’
Bethany is a large co-educational Catholic primary school situated in Werribee North within the western suburbs of Melbourne. Established in 1995, Bethany promotes and values academic excellence and provides a balanced, personalised curriculum with a strong focus on student wellbeing.
The purpose built facilities include four learning centres specifically designed to cater for the developmental needs of the individual. Each centre is spacious, bright and well resourced to meet the needs of the 21st Century learner.
The school strives to create an environment of mutual respect and support among staff, parents and students, and to maintain the flexibility and open-mindedness required to deal with a constantly changing educational environment.
The teaching and learning of the Catholic faith is the primary purpose of St. Andrew’s School. We endeavour to continue the education in faith already begun by the parents in the years prior to commencing formal education. It continues as a partnership with parents and the Catholic community of St Andrew’s Parish.
The sense of community that exists at St. Andrew’s is a strong one. It is exemplified by the willingness of all members (parents, staff, parish priest, pastoral associates and parishioners) to support, encourage and be there for one another.
Our school is characterised by dedicated teaching and administrative staff, caring and responsive family groups, and children who possess a love of learning and sense of fun. Our purpose today is to educate for strong, moral and disciplined individuals who strive for excellence and who develop their intellectual, social and creative talents in order to be effective, responsible citizens.
Our students are from many cultural backgrounds, and we follow the ideal of the Christian community in which each learns and grows in an environment of mutual respect and co-operation.
Our school motto is ‘LIVE, LOVE, LEARN’
