WELCOME TO THE 2019 SCHOOL YEAR!
It is great to welcome back familiar faces as well as new students to the College. We are all privileged, whether it be as staff, students or family, to be a part of the Mount St Bernard College community, its Mercy traditions, cultural diversity and drive to attain optimal learning and wellbeing for each individual student.
We especially welcome sixty new students and twenty four new families along with new staff members, Mr Matthew Brauer, Deputy Principal - Curriculum & Administration, Ms Emily Kiss, Ms Julie Oswell, Mrs Mary Walz & Ms Sharna Fitzpatrick - Teachers, Ms Stefanie Henebery - College Nurse, Ms Liezel Joubert, Mr Brandon McKay and Mr Tohe Wanoa - International Gap Year Boarding Supervisors & Ms Tiarni Potts - Teacher in Practice.
Despite the rain and some interrupted travel plans the year has started very well. This week we celebrated our Commencement Mass. During the Mass we acknowledged that all are called to leadership by their actions but some also take on additional responsibility with recognised additional roles. We congratulate Eliza Lyall & Elizabeth Wong - College Captains and Alexa - Rose Ellis & Shawntella Maiap - College Vice Captains. Our latest newsletter has more great photos.
