After both Masses we will be offering Morning Tea for a donation, to help cover the costs of the Immersion. We would love the chance to chat and share a cuppa and a treat so please feel welcome to come along.

Work Experience Week last week saw Stage 5 students get a look into the future, and make a positive step into seeing what type of career they might embark on after school. For some, they got to work out what they would definitely not want to end up doing, which is also a positive step. Here are some snaps of 3 of our students, from Left to Right:
Karim got his hands dirty at Guildford Autos, working as a mechanic;
Michael, worked at Apostle Paul Bookstore at Rockdale, and Jakob worked with his uncle at Rapidworks, where they are in the process of building a Childcare Centre.
It takes courage and trust to put yourself into an unfamiliar environment and engage with new people, and we are very proud of our students for rising to this challenge. ... See MoreSee Less
Today is R U OK? Day.
R U OK? Day was started in 2009 by Gavin Larkin who lost his father to suicide. He wanted to raise awareness on suicide and also to do something about it.
R U OK? Day is a reminder of the importance of connecting with the people around us and supporting anyone who might be struggling with life. Connecting can be just as simple as asking R U OK?...not just on R U OK? Day...but everyday.
Our counsellors Phoebe, Chris and Natalie, convened a special assembly for students and staff to allow some time for all of us to reflect on this important message. ... See MoreSee Less

We are fortunate that we currently have 3 Prac students working with us at Berne.
Declan is in his Final Year at Sydney University studying for his Masters of Teaching. He particularly likes being at Berne because of the way we are able to cater to students' individual needs on a one to one basis.
Will is in his 1st Year of his Primary Education degree at ACU. Will was interested in undertaking his first prac here so that he could take a look at how education at The John Berne School differs from that of mainstream schooling.
Greg is also currently in his 1st Year of his School Teaching degree, studying online through Curtin University in WA. Greg has a degree in Business but after a couple of years of office work realised that his calling was in education.
We wish these guys all the best for their studies and for their future in education. ... See MoreSee Less
