Welcome to St Bernadette’s Primary School
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the St Bernadette’s Primary School website. Thank you for taking the time to explore our school and the many educational opportunities we can provide for your child.
Our school is situated right next to the beautiful parish church of St Bernadette’s Port Kennedy and Mass is regularly celebrated in the church with our Parish Priest Father Gavin Gomez. Our Catholic faith is taught in every class according to the religious education guidelines for West Australian Catholic schools. We have a very close connection to the parish with many of our staff being active parishioners who live in the area.
Our school motto is Kindness, Honesty and Respect. We strive to emulate and encapsulate these virtues in all we do at the school. We encourage all members of our school community to reflect on the meaning of these virtues and to ‘live’ them in our day and our interactions with each other.
Our school is a warm, friendly, faith filled environment where we strive to develop young men and women of Christian conscience and we are committed to not only the best learning outcomes for our students but the ongoing learning and development of our staff.
We acknowledge the vitally important role of parents. We recognise and value parents and carers as the first educators of their children. We especially welcome parental collaboration in decision making and our school Board and P&F are both excellent avenues for parental involvement.
We encourage and have the expectation that you will be our partners in the education of your children. It is through working together in open honest communication that we will get the very best results for the students in our care. We hope that parents will feel a part of our school and we encourage personal involvement and co-operation. There are many ways parents can become involved in the school and the classroom.
I look forward to sharing a very positive partnership with you as parents and look forward to a happy and successful educational outcome for your children at St Bernadette’s
