Students at St Bernadette's Castle Hill are supported by a professional, dedicated and committed teaching staff, who constantly seek to encourage students to realise and raise their potential.
Our staff foster exploration and innovation, drawing on students’ passions, talents and learning styles to create an education that cultivates the whole child - academically, socially, and emotionally. Opportunities are created by our teachers for their students to develop critical thinking skills, utilising curriculum practices which promote quality personalised learning. They regularly provide opportunities for students to develop the skills to work both cooperatively and independently, embedding technology across the key learning areas. Students benefit from the expertise of specialist Music and PE teachers who provide weekly lessons.
Our educators are encouraged to become co-learners, taking part in regular professional development and ensuring ongoing evaluation and assessment of their teaching practice. Our teachers help promote the concept of ‘lifelong learning’ through demonstrating to their students that they too are learners.
