Central to our school is the child who is supported and nurtured to achieve personal excellence. As a school community we are committed to our vision and continue to strive to educate our students for their future.
Here at St. Bernadette’s, staff are ‘Alive in the Spirit’, working in a collaborative manner, sharing the vision, encouraging professional interchange, collaboration and networking with other schools. Staff, children and parents are encouraged to foster openness and trust as we ‘Shape our Future’.
At St. Bernadette’s we believe that teaching is a relational activity - it’s about people and their interactions. We seek to cultivate a sense of belonging, co-operation and compassion. We strive to draw students, parents, staff and the parish priest into an essential partnership that promotes growth of every individual and the health of the whole community.

The Heritage bus service operating from Heatherdale to The Basin each morning and afternoon means that the school is within reach of many families in Melbourne’s outer eastern suburbs.
