“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” ― W.B. Yeats

Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Bethany College, a centre of quality Catholic education for girls from Year 7 to Year 12.

Bethany College had its beginnings in 1993, when the rich traditions of the Sisters of St Joseph and the Sisters of Charity were combined to meet the educational needs of girls in the St George area of Sydney, NSW.

In 2020 the Bethany community is celebrating 131 years since the Sisters of Charity began teaching Catholic children here on the Hurstville Campus.

2020 is 27 years since we were established in 1993. Our recent HSC results resulted in our College being ranked 72nd in the State of NSW (this includes all schools, selective, independent and systemic Catholic schools). This makes Bethany College the one of the top ranked Catholic schools. This places Bethany College as the third top secondary systemic school in the entire Archdiocese of Sydney.

The College community members are enjoying wonderful facilities – including Library, Office and Administration block, state of the art facilities for Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Senior Study Space and Design rooms.

For parents considering applying for enrolment for their daughters, we look forward to answering your enrolment enquiries and welcoming you and your daughter into the Bethany College Community.
