Fundraising and Events

Fundraising makes it possible to deliver the highly individualised educational instruction and care that we offer at Berne. Our major fundraiser is the Annual Berne Luncheon. You can find some photos from the last three luncheons below. Otherwise please check the calendar for more fundraising opportunities.

ASX Thomson Reuters Art Union Raffle

Thank you very much to the ASX Thomson Reuters Charity Foundation for your recent 2017/2018 donation towards the Counselling Program at The John Berne School.
Our Counselling Program plays a significant role in the work we do to help young people at risk and their families.We currently engage three full time counsellors at Berne who work intensively with our teaching staff to help students overcome behavioural, social and mental health challenges.
In addition to counselling services for students, our counselling team provides practical support for families and conducts a series of parenting courses throughout the year. It also conducts drug and alcohol education and anti-bullying programs for students in our care.
We would also like to thank the ASX Thomson Reuters Charity Foundation for accepting The John Berne School as a recipient of the upcoming 2018/2019 donation program.


Thank You to Our Supporters for 2018

We wish to extend our sincere thanks to all of our supporters and, in particular, recognise the contributions made by our corporate donors. The Annual Berne Luncheon for 2018 was a great success and we thank all our supporters for their generosity and involvement. We look forward to seeing you at next year’s luncheon.
