Staff Development

The teacher is the primary person essentially and fundamentally responsible for the education and welfare of each student. The quality of the spiritual, academic, cultural and sporting programs of the school depends on the dedicated teacher who meets with each student daily to pursue quality education. Teachers at St Bernardine's are:-

  • Professionally competent to teach.
  • Support the Mission and Aims of a Catholic school.
  • Sensitive to the needs of children of all ages.
  • Work as part of a team, in teaching, and in providing for the needs of students in the school setting.
  • Model a personal lifestyle that is consistent with Gospel values.

As Part of modelling for our students about being life long learners the teachers at St Bernardine's will this year be in-serviced in the following areas:-

  • Behaviour management
  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Teaching Religious Education
  • Spirituality and Faith Development
