The John Berne School is a Catholic special school under the care of the Marist Brothers
Berne caters for boys and girls in Years 7–10 who are at risk of not completing their education because they are behaviour disordered, school refusers, or are not coping in mainstream school
It provides educational, personal, social, and family services with the goal that these children will obtain a School Certificate and make a successful transition into the next phase of their lives
Ultimately it aims to assist them to become contributing members of society and happy, mature adults
