Mount St Bernard College offers a quality, Catholic secondary education for young people, male and female, in Years 8 thru 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.

This term, a group of students participated in the Tableland District Interschool Districts Touch Football Competition. There were teams from all schools across the Tablelands District - students from year 8 through to year 12 participated in the MSB Senior team as we didn’t have enough juniors or seniors to field a team in both Junior & Senior competitions. The Senior Competition Grand Final was taken out by MSB, playing against Atherton High’s team who were a year 11’s & 12’s. The final score was MSB 14 to Atherton High 7. Students put in a lot of effort and were committed throughout the season. Maryanne won the Best & fairest Player and Jim received Player of the Series. MSB in conjunction with Herberton tool out the Overall trophy.   By Maryanne & Dennis

As part of the Creative Generation-Excellence Awards in Visual Art, MSB’s very own Melissa and Constance were awarded a Participation Certificate signed by the Minister for Education and Employment, the Hon. John Paul Langbroek MP. A select group of students are selected to encourage and promote excellence in senior visual art from across Queensland.

Siyesha, Tyler, Alexis and Mackenzie have also been recognised for their achievements and are currently exhibiting their work alongside many other young artists from the region, at the Tanks Arts Centre, in gallery 4, Cairns. This will run until the 5th of October and your support would be greatly appreciated.

Constance states that ‘the exhibition was extremely inspiring and enthusiastic, providing me with ideas for future projects. Having my artwork displayed in a gallery like the tanks, was beyond words’.

The Under 14 Herberton Magpies Rugby League team, that many of our boys form the backbone of, have just completed their season undefeated and won the Minor Premiership. This is an impressive feat for our boys and we should all be very proud of them.

On Saturday 6th September the Under 14 team went up against the Atherton Roosters in the Grand Final held at their home ground of Wondecla Oval. In a close match they came out victorious with a 1 point lead to take the match. Final score was 35-34. Player of the match was Richard and Lester was top goal kicker and top try scorer.

We hope to finalise enrolments for 2015 by the end of term 3. Year 10 is nearly full and there are still vacancies for 4 or 5 more in each of years 9, 11 and 12. There are still 25 boarding spaces available across Year 7 & 8.
