We value positive relationships with parents and carers to help develop better social and emotional skills in children. We know that when children are engaged with their learning, they attend school more regularly, leading to better long term outcomes.

For parenting and counselling services, visit the Family Support page, and for direction and clarity on regulations, processes and procedures at our school, read the Sydney Catholic School policies.

Bethany College Hurstville provides a variety of ways for parents and carers to engage in the college community. In addition to the college’s newsletter, the website, email, text messages and the Compass parent portal are all means of communication used to keep parents informed of important news and college events.

Parents & Friends
The college warmly invites all parents and friends of Bethany to attend the Parents & Friends (P and F) meetings held early in each term. The P and F are active in organising social events for Bethany families and various fundraising activities. Please contact the college office for further details.

Cafe Bethany
The canteen encourages and actively promotes healthy food choices for students. Our canteen is open each day from 7:30am to serve breakfast, recess and lunch. We offer a wide variety of hot and cold food with a selection of snacks. Daily specials are advertised in the student daily notices accessed via Compass.
