This year, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students were invited to submit an artwork based on this years theme Serving Country: Centenary and Beyond. The poster competition is a chance for talented artists aged 13 years and older to be recognised across Australia.
The winning artwork will be used to create the National NAIDOC Poster which will promote NAIDOC week 2014. The students were asked to give their artwork a name and write the hidden meaning and symbolism of their poster. Here are a few examples of the fabulous work Mount St Bernard is producing;

YEAR 9.1 SOCIAL SCIENCE
This term, Ms Trudy's Year 9 Social Science class has been insatiably studying the Industrial Revolution and how it has impacted the modern world. Through the students' thirst for knowledge and understanding coupled with their inquiring minds and evaluation of sources, they each have produced a scrapbook of their journey through the Industrial Revolution.
The class journey through the Industrial Revolution has been one filled with wonder and excitement, with the end result being something each class member should be very proud of. Well done Year 9. Now, let's get cracking on discovering how this great nation of ours became what it is today!
