Netball Gala Day

With great excitement we made our way out to Jamison Park at Penrith on Tuesday 22 August, 2017 to spend a fun-filled day playing netball, umpiring, coaching and supporting our teams! We had eight teams take the court and once again our children played exceptionally well, representing St Bernadette’s in a positive manner. They displayed true sportsmanship by congratulating their opponents and thanking the umpires at the conclusion of each game.


Congratulations to all the Year 5 and Year 6 children on their outstanding CAPTIVATE performance on Monday night - 4 September. The children looked amazing and performed beautifully. It was a wonderful experience to be part of a combined choir of over 300 children as well as to perform in our small cluster group of 70 children.
