Our Mission & Vision
St Bernadette’s, The Basin is nestled at the base of the Dandenong Ranges in a beautiful rural setting unmatched by any other school in the suburbs of Melbourne. The Dandenong ranges tower over the school and provide a stunning backdrop to the natural environment and expansive grounds upon which the school is built.
St Bernadette’s is a Catholic school where the student is at the centre of everything that the school strives for. St Bernadette’s provides Catholic school values and education for all school members, but also celebrates and serves the diverse wider community that we are part of by welcoming those from other traditions and faith backgrounds as well as families from a non faith background.
Within a school of approximately 210 students, learning and wellbeing is strongest when learners are engaged within St Bernadette’s community and it is this community that sets us apart from others. At the heart of our school is the desire for the full flourishing of each of our students – their religious, physical, cognitive, emotional and social learning. St Bernadette’s provides Catholic school values and education for all school members, but also celebrates and serves the diverse wider community that we are part of by welcoming those from other traditions and faith backgrounds. As a school community, we are committed to our vision of ‘Striving for Excellence’ as we educate and prepare our students for their future.
