Principals Message

Welcome to St Bede’s! Our school is blessed with a beautiful campus, tight-knit community and excellent teachers dedicated to the highest standards of education. Our focus is on developing the character, talents and potential of each young person in our care. Staff at St. Bede’s foster and develop creativity and collaboration with the goal of achieving excellence in learning. We work together to build ongoing systemic improvement and a culture of trust, respect and integrity. Pride in our school and the profession of teaching is highly valued and enables us to offer quality education for the children of the Braidwood community. Students at St. Bede’s School are encouraged to identify their educational passions and to see themselves as successful learners. We currently have seven classes (individual Year levels) from Kindergarten to Year 6.

The school leadership team includes Ms Amy Doszpot (Assistant Principal) and Ms Shaye Cooper (Acting Religious Education Coordinator). Together with the teaching staff and administrative and classroom support staff we strive to provide best educational practices within the Catholic tradition for every child who attends our school.

We warmly welcome you to our community. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
