Principal's Message

Welcome to Star Academy,

It is with great excitement that we celebrate our 20th year of developing children into lifelong learners with our ‘Learn to Love to Learn™’ philosophy at Star Academy.  Star was founded by Belinda Bernardo in 1997, addressing the needs of the “whole child”, along with Academic, Social, Emotional, Physical, and Global goals, which later became the school’s Pillars of Child Development.

With the encouragement of caring and devoted teachers, Star continues to be an environment that aims to equip students with transferable skills, growth mindsets, and the surety that they are comfortable to take learning risks in a safe learning environment.

As an educator for over 18 years, as well as a parent with both of my children attending Star, I aim to foster an environment where all children are enthusiastic, confident and engaged learners.  Listening to my children recount the ‘Ah-ha’ moments they had during the day, the many occasions that their teachers helped them make meaningful connections, and the ‘everybody knows everybody’ nature of the “small” school environment make Star a unique place to grow.

It is with pride that I invite you to visit us at Star Academy, and invite you to book at appointment to visit us soon!

Kind regards,

Julie Benneyworth
Principal, Star Academy
