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.

I would also like to draw to your attention Parent/Teacher Interviews to be held on Thursday 30th April. Interviews are to be held from 4pm until 6pm including refreshments, in the Convent building courtyard.

I will also be available to discuss QTAC and career information for interested year 12 students and Parents/Carers.

Students in years 7 and 9 will be consolidating skills explicitly taught in Term 1, and experiencing some NAPLAN practice tests early in term 2. NAPLAN testing days are 12-14th May 2015. Please encourage your student to work positively towards achieving well. This is moment-in-time data, and we encourage all students to give their best effort.

This year there will be an extra information report coming home with NAPLAN results—it will detail specific answers your student has given and align them with the state percentage.

Congratulations to all of our Year 11 and 12 students who have been working hard through Exam Block this week. Enjoy a happy and holy Easter break, and I look forward to seeing you refreshed and ready for another hectic term. Many thanks, Janine Conolly   


With Year 7 and 8 students and home form teachers having camp at Camp Tinaroo, the question on the forefront of everyone's mind was "What is Cyclone Nathan going to be doing?". To ensure all of our students were safe, we had the camp dates limited to one night. This meant on the morning of the camp a renewed program was developed and executed. The four instructors led activities with instructors from Barrabadeen Activity Centre. Students had equal opportunity to participate in these activities (Raft building and testing, walk about some of the lake, survival skills and team activities).

Seeing the students at the activities was fantastic, most students participated in a respectful, responsible and safe manner. Thank you also must be directed to catering from a local home cooking business and Schmid's bus service for changing their schedule to help our children be fed appropriately and returned home safely.
