Every child is different and so is his or her learning journey

Our approach to learning puts the growth of each individual child at the heart of schooling. Schools in the Diocese of Parramatta are places of wonder, exploration and endless possibilities. Bede Polding welcomes and truly values each student in our diverse and multicultural learning community.

Each child’s unique strengths and needs guide the design of the learning opportunities we provide to our students.

After all, learning how to learn is equally important as what we learn!

It provides opportunities for students to grow in faith and understanding, to deepen their knowledge of Jesus Christ, to experience a sense of awe and wonder in God and to act in a just and morally responsible manner in everyday life.
