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.


Friday 22nd February is a Student Free Day with staff from St Benedict’s attending the annual ‘Bishop’s Inservice Day’. This day provides an excellent opportunity for staff to listen and reflect on our mission from a range of presenters, including Bishop Michael. The central theme of this year’s inservice day will be Pope Francis’ encyclical, “Laudato Si’” – Caring for Our Common Home.

This morning we celebrated our Opening Year Mass. We were joined by parents, grandparents and members of our Parish along with Fr Matthew who lead us in our liturgy. We thank Fr Matthew for his time and look forward to his guidance throughout 2019. Thank you to our Year 6 students, Mrs Morrison, Miss McCosker and Mrs McLaughlin for their preparation, leadership and ministry. A big thank you also to our choir for their wonderful singing and contribution and to Mrs Tink Boyd, Mrs Langdon and Mrs Clifton for their time and support of the students.

This year we will begin our program with the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Children who are currently in Year 4 or above and who have been baptised are able to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Letters will be sent home with children tomorrow outlining times and dates for parent/child information sessions. If you have any queries in regards to the program please contact Julie McLaughlin at school, 4930 2744 or Fr Matthew Moloney at the parish office, 4931 3171.
