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.


Heidi (Year 3) , Mali (Prep) and Skylar (year 2) ,participated recently in the interschool Gymkhana. If you are interested in joining the St Benedict’s horse riding team for next year’s interschool Gymkhana please contact the office. The girls competed very well with over 170 riders participating from schools across Yeppoon, Rockhampton and surrounding districts. Congratulations girls.

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.

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.

We commence next term on Tuesday 8 October with Monday 7 designated as the Queen’s Birthday Public Holiday. Monday 21 October is a Staff Learning Development Day – Student Free Day for Schools within Catholic Education Diocese of Rockhampton.
