this horrible school ruined my life forever, the teachers treat me with so much disrespect and say im going no where in life. they have also touched me inappropriately on my gentals, lester whenuaroa has traumatised many children by grabbing and flirting with young children. do not go to this horrible school please, and dont get sucked into their shit
On the outside it looks like the perfect school, but what people don’t see is the horrible bullying that goes on inside and no one nose before it’s to late. I was bullied by majority of my year and by the time I left I was depressed and then later that year I had an eating disorder. I had always been a happy kid nothing bad ever happens to me till I went to that school. Also if you haven’t been going to that school since year 1 people will gang up on you. I had a racist teacher , another teacher that bullied students, even some parents bullying in sports teams. I would never recommend this school to anyone! I know I am not alone in this view of this school , I know off many other students leaving for the same reason as I did , and now I’m at a new school that was rated worse that Bethlehem collage everyone has been nothing but kind to me , such a big difference between these to school and there is such a better vibe at this school than that one. Send you child here if you want there life to be ruined.
I have had an amazing experience at Bethlehem Collage. I have had so many opportunities that I would never had though if before. For example we competed in a global competition in Hawaii. We traveled to the South Island to play Jazz in the Jazz festival. We study things that are really relevant while still having fun. The students are good once you get to know them. The teachers are amazing. They’re all really friendly but you’ll find a few of them are really friendly and are really funny and a joy to be around even after school has finished. We have an amazing Performance Arts Centre where we do school productions once every two years. It’s just an all round great place to be. I’d happily do another year there
Teachers are only concerned with the higher grade students and frown upon the 1st 15. Accuse students of things with no proof they have not done. Will not let students take some academic classes because some students are taking classes that require less academics and are more practical because the academic deans find that they shouldn’t be taking a academic class when some students are taking less academic classes when the students are trying to keep their options open. Teachers do not respect students if they are not top grading students and do not offer the time to the non top grading students. Students get bullied by the teachers verbally if the teacher does and does not agree with what students have said. Bethlehem college teachers are the let down of the school. The teachers contradict the foundation and meaning of the school bethlehem college. So much more to list but the message has been put across that the teachers of Bethlehem College, especially in secondary school area and more importantly the secondary school deans and the leadership team of the secondary school absolutely lets down the school. I do not recommend this school purely that the teachers have corrupted the education system. For an example only the higher grading students can attend the more academic classes so that the pass rate is higher in the academic areas. Again I do not recommend this school.
Some teacher are very rude to students and do not treat them fairly. Management is bad, people are punished for wrong reasons and unnecessary rules are being put in place. Things that need to be focused on are pushed to the side for other unneeded things. The school needs to step up and be equal around all aspects. Stop being so uptight and treat the older students like adults not children
