Our essential message to you and your son is to stay in touch with the College.  We are here for your son and your family.  If you have any questions please call ring our reception 9582 5999 or send an email as you would under normal operations for the College.

St Bede’s families have always presented as spiritual, optimistic and life-giving people.  Remind your son strongly, and often, that this phase of his life will pass and we will all have the opportunity to engage in a very meaningful life in the future.  Should you feel that your son is needing additional support beyond the regular class work, then please feel free to contact our Pastoral Team, which may include our College Counsellors, depending on the circumstances.
