Our school’s pedagogy reflects the overarching principles and approach to learning outlined in the Sydney Catholic Schools’ Statement on Authentic Learning. By connecting to the real world of students’ lives, authentic learning enables students to become lifelong learners who contribute to society and the wider world as active and discerning citizens. Authentic learning is central to our work as Catholic educators because it promotes the continual growth and wellbeing of the whole person; spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.

At Bethlehem College Ashfield we empower our students to become independent, creative thinkers and confident young women ready to take their place in the world.

The college’s framework for learning, underpinned by the research of John Hattie and Dylan William, has a particular focus on making learning visible. We see ourselves as a community of learners.

‘Growing Learners: every teacher, every student, every lesson.’
