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. Catholic Education Office Cairns

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.

Last Wednesday we celebrated the formal commencement of the year with our Opening College Mass. As part of our mass we also formally inducted the student leaders for 2015. For these students, this officially marks the beginning of their formal leadership role at Mount St Bernard College. They have been elected by their peers and staff because of the leadership qualities they display. We prayed that they will be able to carry out their duties to the best of their ability, demonstrating quality leadership and commitment throughout 2015. For these students – in their role as school leaders – we can best describe leadership by the 4 C’s – Character, Credibility, Courage and Communication…

Growing up is about learning and having fun and finding the balance between both pastimes. Fun embraces all these things: enjoyment, amusement, or light-hearted pleasure. Make your learning fun. The first Student Free Weekend will be Friday 27th February from 3.30pm, returning Sunday 1st March.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, Miss Nicola Edwards, as Music Teacher at Mt St Bernard College for 2015. MSB has purchased thirteen new African Drums as well as smaller percussion instruments to start a drumming circle at the school. Every Friday lunchtime at 1:00pm all staff and students are welcome to come down to the Music Room (just near the Main Hall) to make rhythms with me in our weekly social drumming circle. All are welcome and no experience is necessary! Year 7s are studying African Music and are enjoying trying out the new drums during Music classes this term.

Choir practice has started again and will continue to be every Tuesday during second lunch break at approx. 12:50pm in the Chapel. A new repertoire of music will be taught and all students are most welcome to join myself and Mrs Riber on Tuesdays. I look forward to showcasing our talented musical students in front of the school and community in 2015.
