Giving students who struggle in mainstream schools the skills to realise their potential

The John Berne School’s priority is to prepare students for a return to mainstream education, for entering trade training or other employment options, and the staff pride themselves in achieving this. The students can present with challenging social, emotional and academic needs which require individualised programs aimed at developing or building on their skills which are behind same-aged peers. Nurturing these students requires staff who exercise enormous patience, unbounded love, provision of intensive support and gentle guidance. These qualities are critical in order to empower students to make the changes needed for success in education and wider society.

Our purpose

The school provides a secure, safe, enriching, and challenging educational environment which gives students in difficulty a second chance and engaging with their families and wider social networks.

Nurturing these students requires staff who exercise enormous patience, unbounded love, provision of intensive support and gentle guidance.

Students are received from across the greater Sydney region, offering them another chance. The low student-to-teacher ratio enables learning processes to be designed to address the individual needs of each student.

We are in the midst of the Australian Mental Health Week which runs from 9th to 17th October. The John Berne School acknowledges the mental health of all the individuals that make up our community, and the importance of supporting each other to be able take care of our own mental health. So let's check in and send love to all those who need it 💯 #AustralianMentalHealth #takecareofyourself #TakeCareOfEachOther❤️🙏🏼 ... See MoreSee Less
