Welcome to our website...

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.


Touch FootballCongratulations to those students who participated in the Catholic Schools Touch Football Carnival yesterday. A fantastic day was had by all with St Anthony’s North Rockhampton being the overall winners of the Carnival. St Benedict’s participated in five pool games with the following results:

  • St Anthony’s – lost 10 nil
  • St Peter’s Rockhampton – lost 6 nil
  • St John’s Gladstone – lost 7 – 1
  • St Joseph’s Park Avenue – lost 4 – 1
  • Star of the Sea Gladstone – won 6 – 1

We then played a cross pool game (5th in pools) against St Brigid’s Emerald and won 7 – 2. Thanks to St Mary’s North Rockhampton and their Principal, Mr Michael Kelso, for organising the carnival and coordinating the day.
