A family that learns together, stays together

STUDENTS at St Andrew's Christian Community School sometimes ask Rebekah Bailey if her family own the school.

They don't, but it is an understandable assumption.

Four members of the Bailey family work at the small school ? Frank (principal), his wife Vivienne (library and office assistant) and Frank and Vivienne's daughters Kate (science teacher) and Rebekah (year seven core teacher).

The youngest member of the family, nine-year-old Stephanie Bailey, is also at the school in Year 4.

And while some families would be at each other's throats, the Baileys said there were more positives than negatives about working with one another.

"There's a lot of support ... and you can come home and nag to the principal to try and get things done quicker," 22-year-old Kate said. "Because we all teach here we bring our work home with us a lot ... so it's kind of like spending all your time here, but it's good."
