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.

Students at Mount St Bernard College are very fortunate to be provided with so many different activities and experiences and it is great to see students making the most of them. Two highlights over the last 2 weeks have been the Year 10 Expedition program and The Great Wheelbarrow

The 10 Expedition Program last week saw the students hike and kayak over 4 days in the Danbulla and Tinaroo area. The expedition program helps nurture resilience, teamwork, initiative, problem solving and leadership qualities in students. The program is aimed at developing self-reliance and teamwork in a foreign environment. It is a great opportunity for the cohort to connect and continue to build positive relationships. Thank you to Mr Tolley, Mr Mawdsley and other staff that undertook this experience with the students.

The Great Wheelbarrow Race has become an annual event for Mount St Bernard College. The race challenges competitors to push an empty wheelbarrow along the ‘Wheelbarrow Way’ between Mareeba and Chillagoe over three days. In the lead up the team has raised funds for the Cathy Freeman foundation. Congratulations to all students involved and thank you to school staff, Julia Cazita-Mazeaud, Warren Part and Laura Hardess for their support and the guidance they provided to the students.

Next week we recognise Reconciliation Week (27 May – 3 June). At the heart of reconciliation is the relationship between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Mount St Bernard College is proud of its multicultural connections from the various communities from the local, Gulf, Cape, Torres Strait , Northern Territory and Papua New Guinean communities. Within our community we have a great opportunity to learn about each other’s cultures. Through learning and respecting each other’s cultures we can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

A Prayer for Peace Makers
Spirit of God, give us the openness, deep within us to recognise each day all people as made in your image and likeness. Help us to learn from others the ways of being fully alive, at peace with ourselves and with those around us.
Give us the courage to transform those parts of ourselves and our world that separate and create enmity.
Help us to take steps to stop the cycle of violence in our homes, in our neighbourhoods, in our country, in our world.
May we be open to our deepest yearning for a world alive with your justice and truth, to dream of a society where all
are treated with respect, and, with the power of your Spirit, to take steps to bring it about. Amen
