Welcome ...

Welcome to St Benedict's Catholic Primary School Yeppoon!

St Benedict's strives to awaken in its members a spirit of personal initiative and a disposition to care for each other, their community and society in general. We take Jesus Christ as our model and foundation, working as part of church to bring about the harmony, fulfilment and satisfaction we believe God intends for all people. It is part of the journey of discovery of all its members, providing opportunities to learn, to experience and to choose.

St Benedict's offers an academic education of the highest standard in an environment guided by Christian values. Our school will be a place where children learn by example from a committed faith community, consisting of staff, students and parents.


On Friday evening, 11 October, the St Benedict’s Parents & Friends Association have organised a social gathering for students and parents from 5.30 -7.00pm. All families are invited to come along and join the fun.

~ Games of mixed netball for adults and children
~ Free sausage sizzle
~ Catching up with friends
~ Meeting other families
~ Cold drinks for sale

Prep interviews for new families who have applied for enrolment in our 2020 Prep classes have commenced. If you know someone who is considering enrolment in Prep for next year, please ask them to contact the office to complete the appropriate forms and accompanying details to enable their interview to occur this term. Please collect an enrolment pack from the office or download one here.

Next week the RACQ Education team will visit St Benedict’s to work with all of our students as they implement their ‘Streets Ahead’ program.
Students from Prep to Year 2 will participate in the program on Monday or Tuesday, while students from Year 3 to 6 will be involved on Wednesday. We thank RACQ Education for their wonderful support and for delivering this program at no cost to the school. For videos explaining the content in the RACQ program, please scan the QR codes appearing in our latest newsletter, using a smartphone or click the appropriate links.

Our Twilight Markets are being held on Friday 8 November commencing at 5.30pm. Thank you to the parents and Mrs Julie McLaughlin who have been working enthusiastically behind the scenes with much of the lead up work for this year’s event. Early next term we will begin contacting parents from the various year levels to ask for your support leading up to and on the night as we once again look forward to creating another wonderful community event for the local area.
