Bede Polding College offers an environment where care, guidance, support and respect are promoted with a sense of self-worth and an awareness of the needs of others.


Our College motto, Called to Bring Peace, encourages us to live out the message of the Gospels.

Selecting Bede Polding College will give your child the best opportunity to develop academically, spiritually and socially, and in partnership with our parish and the wider Catholic education community. It involves a commitment to work with the school and support the philosophy, values and aims of Catholic education.

Specifically, joining this community means parents/carers and students are committed to:

  • the development of quality relationships with all members of the school community
  • the Catholic identity and evangelising mission of the school within the Church
  • supporting the school in upholding school policies and procedures
  • involvement by parents and caregivers, where possible, in the life of the school.

 


 

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision.

We encourage parents to organise a time to tour our school, meet our staff and see our learning in action. There are also a number of organised events, such as Open Days, which will also help future parents to get a 'feel' for our school.
