Welcome to our website......

Mount St Bernard College offers a quality, Catholic secondary education for young people, male and female, in Years 7 through 12.  At MSB we are proud of our Mercy traditions, while remaining responsive to the contemporary needs of students who seek a faith-based education that will stand them in good stead for the future. Catholic Education Office Cairns

Our College is a culturally diverse community which provides a holistic education that nurtures the academic, spiritual, emotional, physical, cultural and social development of individual students in a caring, safe and supportive environment. 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.

We have come to an end of a busy term and I am sure the students and staff will make the most of their break. Midterm reports are being compiled at present and will be available on the parent portal early next term. A copy will also be mailed to all families. Students will also receive their own copy in week one next term and will be encouraged to spend some valuable class time with their subject teachers in discussion about their results. Encouragement and commendations where necessary and in depth deliberations on the areas of improvement and how this could be achieved presents a great opportunity for student growth.

Good luck to the 20 students who will be travelling to Brisbane for our first ever Confraternity Cup – school boys rugby league competition. We are looking forward to hearing about their adventure when they return. Plenty of smiling faces at assembly last week when we highlighted all the wonderful achievements of many and discussed the opportunities that are available to all – not just within the classroom but also in the cultural and sporting fields.


Catholic Education Week is an opportunity for all Catholic schools to celebrate and promote their distinctive mission and ethos.  Catholic education strives to make a difference in the lives of those in our schools and in the wider community by challenging young people to live out the message of Jesus and to reach their full potential as compassionate, contributing, life-giving members of society.

Catholic education:

  • Is a faith-based education which places the values of Jesus at its centre
  • Is a high quality, holistic education for 1 in 5 young Queenslanders, educating them to be well-informed, highly skilled and constructive members of the community
  • Values diversity and treats each student with dignity enabling them in turn to promote and respect the dignity of all
  • Nurtures in students a commitment to social justice and a critical social consciousness
  • Prepares students for global responsibilities through stewardship of the earth’s resources
  • Is an integral part of the local and universal Church
  • Occurs in welcoming, inclusive, and connected communities.

Pope Francis has said:
Today, we need a Church capable of walking at people’s side, of doing more than simply listening to them; a Church which accompanies them on their journey.  The whole journey of life is a journey of preparation…to see, to feel, to understand the beauty of what lies ahead, of the homeland towards which we walk.

A number of scholarships are available to students attending Mount St Bernard College.
