This year, the students at St Bernard’s are loving their extra space. Following Sydney Catholic Schools’ acquisition of an extra property, the school playground has been expanded to include a large, grassy area. Here, the students can run freely. A concerted effort has been made not to impose too many rules. It is great to see how the children are using the area. Amazingly, the children have been organising a combination of soccer, touch football and running games among themselves, each lunch time, without much drama.
