Beyond the Bell is a collective impact initiative, responding to place-based problems through place-based interventions.
We adopt a collaborative approach to facilitate community driven initiatives.
The goal of Beyond the Bell is to improve educational outcomes in the Great South Coast region of Victoria, Australia, by supporting and empowering young people to achieve their full potential.
To actively work with communities to enable children and young people in South West Victoria to engage in education and successfully transition through key stages of their learning.
All children and young people are connected to education and engaged in their learning.
Beyond the Bell is committed to Reconciliation.
We acknowledge and pay our respects to the First Peoples, traditional custodians of the lands, seas and waters and thank them for their continued hospitality. We also acknowledge and celebrate the continuation of this living culture that has a unique role in the regions we all work in.
We recognise we are on land where First Nations people have gathered and educated their children in their language and traditions of their culture for many thousands of years. We recognise Elders past and present, Elders of other communities, and the emerging leaders of tomorrow and thank them for their wisdom and guidance as we walk together.
