About our school

At St Bernard’s College, we are committed to education that helps young men to become co-creators of their world. Education that encourages the cultivation of an inner fire and generates autonomy from the demands and promises of our dominant culture. We are guided by the EREA Touchstones, which we incorporate into every aspect of the College life. We instil the values taught by the Blessed Edmund Rice in a modern way while maintaining the core principles of his teachings, empowering our students to apply these teachings to their everyday life. 2021 amplified the challenges we experienced in 2020. As a College, we continued to innovate to overcome day to day obstacles and focused on ensuring the delivery of remote learning to our Students, was tailored to each and every one. We believe that inclusion and the support of the marginalised and disenfranchised of the world is core to the Gospel and the Catholic vision of education.
