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 Tuesday morning St Benedict’s students and staff travelled to Sacred Heart Church to celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of Mary. We joined with Sacred Heart students and staff as well as many parishioners for this special mass. A very big thank you to Fr Noel Milner who celebrated this mass with us, we appreciate his time and support. Thanks to Mrs Deb McGuire and Mrs Melissa Collins who assisted with the preparation of the mass. Congratulations to all the St Benedict’s students who participated including our readers, banner bearers, offertory procession participants and singers - a fabulous effort from all.



The information night for the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be held on Wednesday 6 September. Letters and forms were sent home this week with details for Reconciliation and are also attached to this newsletter for your information. If you have any questions please contact Julie McLaughlin at school 4930 2744 or the Parish Office on 4933 6171.

Each year across Australia, The Children’s Book Council of Australia brings children and books together celebrating Children’s Book Week. This year Book Week is celebrated from 19-26 August (next week) and we will join with other schools, libraries, booksellers, authors, illustrators and children to celebrate Australian children's literature.

At St Benedict’s a number of activities are planned, with some already taking shape.
  • Mrs Hudson is busily creating another wonderful atmosphere in our library.
  • Teachers and students are preparing displays on books from the 2017 short list for Book of the Year.
  • Guess the staff members favourite book (competition in the library)
  • Book Character Day – Friday 25 August. Come dressed as a Character from a ‘BOOK’. Think about a favourite character of yours, maybe one from your favourite book or you might think of an interesting or unusual character.

Names are being taken for the 2018 Prep Year (children born 1/7/2012 – 30/6/2013). Please register at the school office if you have a child who will be attending St Benedict’s Prep next year or if you know of any families who are intending to send their children to St Benedict’s next year.
