HAVING grown up with music, Bernadette Mitchell is passing her knowledge on to students at The Cathedral College.

The cultural co-ordinator works with students in the choir, music ministry and vocal ensembles as part of her job and enjoys every aspect of it.

For her work, Bernadette was awarded the Spirit of Catholic Education Award at Catholic Education week last month in Brisbane.

The award nominates those engaging in exceptionally life-giving relationships with students, staff and parents of the school community.

Bernadette, who plays the piano and organ, said she was humbled to receive the award.

"I was rather shocked. I sort of think that there's so many people worthy of that award - just even at this school - and the dedication from people here they go above and beyond the call of duty," she said.
