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.


This week we had some of our students demonstrate their skills using our robotics equipment and 3D printers. On Tuesday evening we welcomed a number of parents to our P&F meeting where they were able to watch and play with the equipment and this evening our Board will be able to observe these technologies in action. Thank you to Mrs Gabby Barker who coordinated this display and presented a short information session on the project. We are looking forward to continuing this work with our students into the future.

Last week we competed against Sacred Heart for the Companion Cup – Netball and Rugby League. It was great to have the two schools come together to for this annual event. Congratulations to Sacred Heart who won the rugby league game 26 -12 and a big thank you to Mr Paul Grant for coaching our boys. Our girls then competed for the Netball Companion Cup, a huge congratulations to them as they took the Cup 31 -7. Thank you to Miss Maddy Ryan and Mrs Paula Osborne for their time preparing the girls.

Yesterday we competed against a number of other Catholic Schools for the Tony Novak Catholic School Touch Challenge. Again, we thank Mrs Paula Osborne and Mr Paul Grant for their efforts in training the students for this day. We won 3 games and lost 3 games coming eighth overall. Thank you to Mrs Jennie Harris and St Mary’s North Rockhampton for organising this event.

We hope all our families have a relaxing break, keep safe and we look forward to you all returning for an exciting and ‘normal’ Term 4.
