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.


All parents, grandparents, families and friends are invited to our 2017 end of year celebrations on Tuesday 28th November.

~ Thanksgiving and Farewell Mass – 9.30am
~ Morning tea following Mass – 10.45am
~ Concert and Carols evening – 6.30pm

The Lights of Christmas 2017 will use the external facade of St Joseph's Cathedral as a canvas to display an 8 minute animation as well as Christmas themed slides in a rotating 20 minute show.

17 to 23 December - a first for Rockhampton!

Our recent Twilight Markets was a wonderful event that was enjoyed in a fantastic atmosphere.  It was great to see so many parents working and supporting our night on the various stalls and enjoying the festivities with their children. I was amazed by the huge local community support we received on the night from the stallholders and the very large number of patrons.

These events obviously don’t happen by themselves and there were many who contributed to the night’s success.  On behalf of our school community, I sincerely thank all those involved (see newsletter for special mentions).  Their leadership, enthusiasm and effort was outstanding and instrumental in the success of the night.

Congratulations to our Parents and Friends Association for a fantastic night.

The final P&F meeting for 2017 is next Tuesday 21 November commencing at 6.30pm – we will hopefully have a clear idea of the financial success of the night at the meeting.
