Principal's Message


​​It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our website. 

St Bernard's School is a Catholic co-educational primary school located in Upper Mt Gravatt. Under the care of Brisbane Catholic Education, the school caters to students from Prep to Year 6. The school prides itself on providing a holistic education that focuses on the development of the whole child. This includes academic, social, emotional, and spiritual growth. 

At St Bernard’s, we value respect, responsibility, and resilience. We believe that these values are essential for success in school and in life. We strive to create a safe, inclusive, and supportive learning environment where every student feels valued and empowered. St Bernard’s has a strong commitment to the faith development of the students in our care and provides opportunities for students to develop their faith through daily prayer, religious education, and participation in liturgical celebrations.

St Bernard's School has a team of dedicated and experienced teachers who are committed to providing a high-quality education to every student. The school offers a broad and balanced curriculum that is designed to meet the individual needs of each student. The school has a range of facilities to support student learning and development, including well-equipped classrooms, a library, and a multi-purpose hall. The school also offers a range of extracurricular activities, including sports, music, and drama.

Conveniently located next door to Clairvaux-MacKillop College, the two schools have a strong relationship have a strong relationship built on a shared commitment to providing high-quality education to students. The two schools have a history of collaboration, with Clairvaux Mackillop College often providing support and resources to St. Bernard's School. Additionally, the two schools work together to ensure a smooth transition for students from St. Bernard's School to Clairvaux Mackillop College, with many students choosing to continue their education at the college after graduating from St. Bernard's. This relationship benefits both schools, as it allows them to share knowledge and expertise, and work together to provide the best possible education to all of their students. 

St Bernard's School has a strong sense of community and encourages parent involvement in the education of their children. The school has an active Parent and Friends Association (P & F) that supports a range of school events and activities throughout the year.

I look forward to working with our students, families, and community to ensure that every child receives the best possible education. Thank you for visiting our website, and if you are interested in enrolling your child at St Bernard's School, please contact the school office for further information and to arrange a tour of the school.
