Why choose St Bernadette's School?

Choosing the right education for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.

At St Bernadette's we understand the unique gifts of each and every child and the importance of building knowledge, skills and resilience to enable our students to be active participants in their future world.  We do this through providing opportunities for children to use their natural inquisitiveness to become problem solvers and innovators.  We lay the groundwork for future learning by providing the foundation knowledge that will help students to progress to more complicated concepts and tasks as they move through their learning journey.
