What we offer at St Bernadette’s Primary
A culture of care and achievement
At St Bernadette's, we aim for excellence in teaching and learning and to provide our students with a variety of opportunities to experience personal excellence as they grow and develop in our care. We emphasise:
- providing for the 'whole' person - spiritually, socially, physically, emotionally, culturally and intellectually, based on the Gospel values
- opportunities to experience success and learning at an individual level
- helping students understand their faith in an environment of prayer, support, celebration and belonging.
Opportunities to grow and shine
We recognise that part of our duty as educators is to prepare the leaders of tomorrow, giving them the skills they need to be compassionate, confident and capable. This is the focus of our student leadership program, and in addition, the wide variety of extracurricular activities on offer such as public speaking and debating, drama, music and a range of sports.
Our students are encouraged to develop a range of interests and abilities in order to receive a balanced holistic education.Learn More
