The schools have an ongoing commitment to teacher Professional Development in regard to catering for individual differences and providing best practice.
The curriculum is a ‘living document’ open to constant assessment and modification. Regular evaluation and review is vital to ensure the students’ needs are catered for.
We aim to give your child the encouragement to take the initiative and gain the confidence to succeed. With state-of-the-art facilities such as Science Labs, Gymnasiums and Art rooms, the co-curricular programs are an empowering experience for all students.
A broad and innovative range of co-curricular activities is implemented each year to enrich our students and give expression to their creativity. Our school magazines showcase literacy and social creativity; attend one of our drama and you will see spirited and imaginative performances of a high standard; and display depth and vision, communicated with remarkable proficiency.
By challenging each student to explore new thought processes and take creative risks, these programs promote an appreciation of literature, performance and fine arts, foster personal growth, individual expression and self esteem, and give a taste of the possibilities of a creative life.
Students’ self esteem is built through a range of programs including peer-leadership initiatives; public speaking, debating, General and Jewish knowledge challenges, our ‘You Can Do It’ and ‘Connections’ programs, to name but a few.

Both in school and after hours, your child will have the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of sporting activities and programs which include swimming, ball skills, dance skills, athletics, canoeing, gymnastics and sports days.
Enrichment and Extension
Our teaching programs are especially designed to stretch and expand our students’ thinking. Within this setting, we aim to ensure that students benefit from the Jewish tradition of ‘meychayil el chayil – growing from strength to strength’ and are therefore, will be ready to take the next step in learning.
With a dedicated and highly-qualified support team – including Literacy and Numeracy experts, Enrichment and Support Staff and School Psychologists – we aim to help students raise their own expectations of what they can achieve. They learn to continue to strive for excellence.
Students find the Beth Rivkah experience to be one of redefining and extending their personal boundaries – intellectually, physically, spiritually and emotionally.
