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.


Circle of MercyCIRCLE OF MERCY
Last week our Year 6 students attended in a special workshop, The Circle of Mercy, with singer/songwriters Gina Ogilvie and Monica O’Brien. The children participated in singing and viewed a clip entitled, “What Does the Circle of Mercy Mean to you?” They were then asked to reflect on the message and share their thoughts with the group. The session finished with the students participating in a liturgy with students from Sacred Heart. Thank you to the Catholic Education Office and Miss Leesa Jeffcoat for sponsoring this event and to Vicki Heggie, Religious Education Consultant for her organisation of this tour.

Next Friday 2 September Year 2E will be leading our Father’s Day Assembly. After assembly Year 5M will host morning tea. All Fathers, Grandfathers, Uncles and friends of our community are invited to attend.

Congratulations to Ben and Lucy who represented Rockhampton District at this week’s Capricornia Track and Field trials. Ben was placed first in all five events he contested (100, 200, 800, Long Jump and the Tetrathlon). Ben will now compete at the Queensland State Track and Field Championships in October. Well done Ben!

TWILIGHT MARKETS - Year 3/4 Announcement
For this year’s Twilight markets (Friday 11 November) years 3 and 4 will be creating items from pallets. We are asking any parents who may be able to obtain pallets to start collecting these for us. We anticipate we might begin construction at the end of this term. There will be a collection area in the teachers’ car park at the rear of the school. If you are able to break down the pallets that would be greatly appreciated, though intact pallets are also welcome. Thank you for your assistance.
