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.

Thank you to the teachers and classes who have hosted our liturgies this week as we reflect on the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection.

ATHLETICS
Our Inter-house Athletics events and carnival will be held over two days in the first week of Term Two. On Tuesday 23 April we will be holding our field events for 10, 11 and 12 years old. These will begin at approximately 9am. The students will be participating in their age group and complete three events: high jump, long jump and shot put (in age group rotations). Normal Tuckshop will be available on Tuesday 23 April. On Friday 26 April the inter-house carnival (P-6) will be held. Timetables for both days is available in our latest newsletter.

NAPLAN ONLINE UPDATE
Our students in Years 3 and 5 will be undertaking NAPLAN testing online in May this year for the first time. Moving NAPLAN online brings many advantages, including a test design that offers test items tailored to students’ knowledge and ability. During the last week of Term 1, the students participated in a national practice test and they took the opportunity to refamiliarise themselves with the variety of questions and various ways to respond using technology. The practice assisted our fine tuning of the technical aspects and to trial various organisational processes. We will finalise a schedule that includes our best use of hardware and timetabling to best support the students in their work. The final timetable will be shared early next term.

Parents and caregivers of students in these NAPLAN year levels will need to be aware of important information relating to privacy, which can be found on the NAPLAN Online Queensland website’s parent information page - (https://naplanonline.qld.edu.au/getting-ready/parent-information).
