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.

I invite you to visit or contact our school and talk with our leadership team about an educational partnership that will launch your childwell into the future with a strong academic foundation based on Christian values. In the words of our school motto; Let your light shine!”

10 IDMT stage combatIT & GRAPHICS - 10 IDMT
The year 10s this term have been busy with film editing. A few volunteers bravely stepped forward to learn stage combat and choreograph their own short fight. The editing and sound effects were put together by the Year 10s with pleasing results. The photo to the right is part of Episode 2 of 3 being filmed this semester.

Enrolments for year 7 and 8 are over half full, room for about 25 more in these two new classes. The decision has been made to expand slowly, to have 210 to 220 students next year, not 250. Some will miss out because of this, so you need to contact us soon if you wish to be included.

Rural Fire Service experienceFar Nth Qld Rural Fire Service Volunteers from the Tablelands Lakes District, along with students from Mount St Bernard College, Herberton, and employees from Tablelands Regional Council and Dept of Energy and Resource Management completed an exercise in Irvinebank on Saturday 14th June 2014 as part of a state wide operation called ”Operation Cool Burn”. 13 vehicles and 54 personnel were deployed to test their operations at a large scale bush fire incident. Training included, Incident Management Control, 4WD skills, Relay pumping, First Aid, Burn over, navigation and finally a live fire exercise.

In conjunction with the Rural Fire Service Queensland, Mount St Bernard College has been offering a Certificate II in Public Safety-Fire Operations for three years. The Innisfail Area office of the Rural Fire Service provides trainers to the college for this vital course.

Rural Fire Service experienceCollege principal Br Bill Tynan said “Mount St Bernard College is very pleased with the schools continued involvement in these exercises and very proud to be part of operations to save houses in late 2012. Each experience like these help students to learn from the Rural Fire Service and grasp the practical meaning of service.” Student Seiji Gabey from Yorke Island in the Torres Strait said “As there is no fire department on Yorke Island I can help at home with the knowledge I gain from this event and training at school. I’ll be able to apply this knowledge back home in the Torres Strait.” Jim Maitie from Moa Island in the Torres Strait said “I feel very confident and really enjoy doing this course and the training exercise was great.”
