Welcome to our website......

Mount St Bernard College offers a quality, Catholic secondary education for young people, male and female, in Years 7 through 12.  At MSB we are proud of our Mercy traditions, while remaining responsive to the contemporary needs of students who seek a faith-based education that will stand them in good stead for the future. 

Our College is a culturally diverse community which provides a holistic education that nurtures the academic, spiritual, emotional, physical, cultural and social development of individual students in a caring, safe and supportive environment. At MSB we recognise the individuality of every one of our students. We seek to help each student become the best person they can be, by providing quality learning and teaching and making available a rich tapestry of sporting,artistic and other co-curricular activities, to help them discover and develop their personal giftedness.

Term 3 has been an exceptionally busy term filled with many opportunities to learn and share new experiences. The students should be congratulated on what has been a term filled with many highlights. The staff must also be recognised for their continual efforts to engage students and provide varying and vast learning opportunities. The list to the side provides just a snap-shot of some of the opportunity’s students have had this term alone.

The learning is not just restricted to the academic needs of the students. Many hours are placed into delivering Social Emotional Learning (SEL) as well as Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) lessons. Mrs Doris Cuda looks after the SEL curriculum with Year 7-10 having a single lesson timetabled each week. A PBS focus for each week is also provided and resourced by Mrs Jenny Rossiter. It is then presented at Monday morning assembly and then students work through activities in Home form each day. Focuses this term have included; Being Organised, Size of a Problem, Following Reasonable Requests, Shame, Cyber Health Check, Blame, Making an Apology, RUOK, Safe Holiday Plans.  I wish all the staff, students and families a safe and refreshing holiday and look forward to Term 4.
