St Bernard's Bush School Initiative began in 2021 as a response to falling enrolment numbers and an aspiration to begin a 3-year-old program. With only one Early Years room at the school, the Pre-Primary students needed to be relocated for the 3-year-old day, and Bush School was seen as an innovative, meaningful solution. Bush School has now progressed to be an authentic, rich learning experience for the Pre-Primary students and students across all year levels. The 3-year-old program, called Jnr. Stars, has also been a great success, attracting many new families to St Bernard's and resulting in ongoing enrolments.
