Our Staff

Students at St Bernadette's Primary learn from a team of professional and supportive teachers.

Our teachers are highly skilled and passionate about providing the best learning opportunities for every student. Our commitment to best teaching and learning practice is supported by an extensive professional development program for all staff.

Teachers at St Bernadette's are lifelong learners themselves so they know what it takes to develop a love of learning. They meet each student where they are on their learning journey, and challenge and support them to become the best learner they can be. St Bernadette's provides students with a high quality education that prepares them for their future.

It is the quality of our teachers that makes all the difference.
