Pastoral care and student enhancement

St Bernadette’s believes in forming a collaborative community where freedom to explore is encouraged. Respect for one another is fostered through the celebration of gifts and differences in the tradition of compassion, justice and love. The explicit teaching of values and social skills, the buddies program, the student representative council and the recognition of achievement, empower our students to self-manage and to solve conflicts.

At St Bernadette’s we aim to:

  • respect and care for each other
  • respect each other’s personal space
  • wear our uniform with pride
  • care for our school environment
  • care for our property and the property of others
  • play fairly and safely.

The following strategies contribute to student enhancement at St Bernadette’s:

  • values
  • social skills
  • buddies program
  • co-operative learning skills
  • student representative council
  • merit awards.
