Staff Development

‚ÄčThe 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.

Professional learning opportunities are planned for staff, which are grounded in research-proven practice and are aligned with the school's vision and national priorities. The school improvement agenda is communicated to parents and families yearly.  There is a strong commitment by all staff to the improvement agenda and the sharing of best practice to improve student progress.
