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.


We began Tuesday’s St Benedict’s Day celebrations with mass, focusing on the Gifts we study which come from the Rule of St Benedict. The gifts were special keys to open our doorway to acting with mercy throughout our school community. Thank you to Fr Peter Tonti who celebrated mass with us. We appreciate Fr Peter’s time, his prayerful guidance and ongoing support of our school community.

St Benedicts Award WinnersThank you to Mrs Boyd, Mrs Collins and the choir for their wonderful leadership. A special thank you to Mr McWhinney who shared his musical talents with us during Mass. I also thank the Year 5 students for their superb leadership and ministry throughout the mass – well done!

After lunch the children moved into their St Benedict’s Day activities including, pavement art, disco dancing, library games and living art. Thank you to our teachers who organised these events and to our Year 6 leaders who helped implement the activities.

After Mass we announced the recipients of our 2016 St Benedict’s Day Award. The awards are presented to students who strive to follow in the footsteps of St Benedict and our School Motto – Listen, Love, Learn - through their words and actions.  Congratulations to this year’s winners: Mercedes and Noah.

Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for our Inter-house Athletics Carnival last Thursday. While the breeze was a little fresh, the weather was beautiful and it was a wonderful day together. On behalf of everyone, a huge thanks to Mrs Barker and Mrs Osborne for their organisation of the day and their preparation throughout the term. Thank you also to Mrs Watson and her team of helpers in the tuckshop and on the BBQ – well done Grandad Dave!
