Welcome to our website......

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. 

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.

COMMUNITY NEWS 

NAPLAN 2021
In preparation for NAPLAN Online testing in Term 2 (Commencing Wednesday 12th May) the college will be conducting a Coordinated Practice Test on Thursday 25th March, involving all students in Year 7 and 9.

Students will participate in one 45 minute Writing Test, administered through the NAPLAN online Training Environment. The primary intention of this exercise is to expose students to the NAPLAN Online testing platform, building understanding and skill development. In addition, the college can evaluate and refine their practices, in preparation for formal testing in May.

In the lead up, teachers will be supporting students with a range of online testing protocols and skills, within class. This will include a greater emphasis on keyboarding skills and use of online educational tools e.g. digital calculators and test specific applications and digital literacy.

At Mount St Bernard, we encourage all eligible students to participate in NAPLAN Testing, without placing unnecessary pressure around test performance. The focus will remain on effort and persistence, attributes in which underpin our college learning vision.

I have included in our latest newsletter some information surrounding NAPLAN Online to support with both student and parent understanding. If you have any queries or concerns, I encourage you to reach out and contact me at the college.
Mr Matt Brauer

CENTENARY NEWS
The preparations for the Centenary weekend are well under way. Merchandise has been ordered and will be available for purchase from the Centenary website soon. We would like to thank everyone who has donated or loaned us items from their time at Mount St Bernard College. These items are a valuable part of recording and maintaining the history of the College. We are receiving some wonderful stories of students' time at the school and we encourage everyone to visit the website to record a memory or story of their time. Alternatively please email msbcentenary@cns.catholic.edu.au with your story and we can upload it for you. We need to ensure that we capture these stories from our more recent past students as well to maintain an ongoing history of the College.

Bookings for the Centenary weekend are being taken now and numbers are required as soon as possible to allow us to effectively plan and cater for all guests.
