Statement of commitment: St Bernard’s College promotes the safety, wellbeing and inclusion of all children and young people.

St Bernard’s College promotes the vision of Edmund Rice, as stated in the Edmund Rice Education Australia Charter . At St Bernard’s College we hold the care, safety and wellbeing of children and young people as a central and fundamental responsibility of our school. Our commitment is drawn from and inherent in the teaching and mission of Jesus Christ, with love, justice and the sanctity of each human person at the heart of the gospel ( CECV Commitment Statement to Child Safety ).

The person of each individual human being, in his or her material and spiritual needs, is at the heart of Christ’s teaching: that is why the promotion of the human person is the goal of the Catholic school (Congregation for Catholic Education 1997, n. 9).
