Ber­ri­gan Pub­lic

Ber­ri­gan Pub­lic School’s goal is to de­velop stu­dents who are self-mo­ti­vated learn­ers who work both co-op­er­a­tively and in­de­pen­dently whilst striv­ing to reach their full po­ten­tial. Staff are com­mit­ted to stu­dents’ de­vel­op­ment of their whole be­ing — aca­dem­i­cally, cul­tur­ally, phys­i­cally, so­cially and mo­rally.

The im­ple­men­ta­tion of per­son­alised learn­ing, highly qual­i­fied teach­ing and sup­port staff, ex­cel­lent re­sources, a sup­port­ive par­ent and wider com­mu­nity pro­vide an en­vi­ron­ment con­ducive to achiev­ing ex­cel­lence for all stu­dents.

Pro­grams and learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties that fo­cus on the arts, en­vi­ron­ment, tech­nol­ogy, healthy life styles, lead­er­ship, sport, re­silience and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of oth­ers are ev­i­dent across the school.

The school has a very sup­port­ive and hard work­ing Par­ents and Cit­i­zens As­so­ci­a­tion and the school en­deav­ours to pro­mote a strong part­ner­ship be­tween home and school to en­sure the best pos­si­ble out­comes for our stu­dents.

There is strong sup­port from the lo­cal com­mu­nity, whose mem­bers gen­er­ously share their var­i­ous skills, knowl­edge and tal­ents with both staff and stu­dents. The school plays an im­por­tant role in the com­mu­nity by be­ing in­volved in pub­lic speak­ing com­pe­ti­tions, CWA and com­mu­nity pre­sen­ta­tions, at­tend­ing An­zac Day marches and vis­it­ing hospi­tal and day care cen­tres.

The stu­dents, par­ents and staff are jus­ti­fi­ably proud of our school and we all look for­ward to you join­ing us and be­com­ing part of the Ber­ri­gan Pub­lic School Com­mu­nity. For all en­quiries, please con­tact prin­ci­pal Gayle An­driske on 5885 2209.

Ber­ri­gan Chil­dren’s Cen­tre

Ber­ri­gan Chil­dren’s Cen­tre As­so­ci­a­tion In­cor­po­rated (BCCA) is a com­mu­nity owned and op­er­ated early child­hood ser­vice that has been pro­vid­ing af­ford­able, qual­ity care and ed­u­ca­tion for al­most 18 years.

Its ed­u­ca­tors and staff pro­vide a wel­com­ing, sup­port­ive and car­ing en­vi­ron­ment for chil­dren, their fam­i­lies and the broader com­mu­nity.

The holis­tic ap­proach to teach­ing and learn­ing un­der the Early Years Learn­ing Frame­work (EYLF) al­lows the cen­tre to cater to each in­di­vid­ual child’s phys­i­cal, per­sonal, so­cial, emo­tional, spir­i­tual well­be­ing and cog­ni­tive learn­ing needs. A three and four year-olds preschool pro­gram is run by a qual­i­fied teacher, and there’s also care for chil­dren aged six weeks-old to five years old and after school and va­ca­tion care for 5-12 year-olds.

The out­door play space means chil­dren are di­rectly en­gaged with the en­vi­ron­ment on many lev­els.

The cen­tre is open Mon­day to Fri­day from 8am to 5.30pm, and new enrolments are wel­come. Drop in to the cen­tre at 17-19 Ste­wart St, Ber­ri­gan or phone 5885 2324.
