Charism

​The charism of St Bernard’s outlines our particular way of life …. A way of life that we want to live and model  to our children.

It is our pathway through which we interpret and give witness  to Jesus Christ who is at the centre of all we do.St Bernards 010 (Custom).JPG

It is our Spiritual Energy.

Our charism has six elements.

Dignified Relationships

  • As a Catholic education  community we believe that the person is at the heart of Christ’s teaching.  We believe that we are made in the image of God and understand our compassion and  kindness most deeply in our relationships with other people.

Active Believers

  • We are Active Believers in the teachings of Jesus.   We see God as forever present to others i.e. we are God to others.

Embrace challenges with wisdom and compassion

  • Life is difficult and our role as a lifelong learning community is to teach and help children develop their own wisdom in a kind-hearted way.

Stewards of Creation and Community

  • Following our Catholic tradition as active disciples of Jesus we care for our world and each other with justice and compassion.

People of Prayer

  • As People of Prayer we are called to the presence of God who is our hope and strength.

Heart, Mind & Spirit at Work

As a community we work to open our heart to all people and to celebrate our range of cultures.
We are mindful of anticipating the needs of others, to ensure everyone is included.
As people of Spirit we continue St Bernard’s devotion to Mary, the Mother of God.
