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.
Thank you to our teachers and students for their wonderful performances on Tuesday evening. All renditions of carols and poems were very entertaining. We hope our community enjoyed the evening. Congratulations to our Year 6 students on their very entertaining dance.
On Wednesday Mrs Boyd's singing students performed at the Aged Care Facilities around Yeppoon. The residents thoroughly enjoyed the performance by the students. Thank you very much to Mrs Boyd and Mrs McLuskie for all their time and effort in preparing our students.
Congratulations to all students who swam at yesterday's inter-house swimming carnival. The day included a wonderful level of participation and competitive racing. Thank you to Mrs Barker who organised and coordinated the carnival and to everyone who contributed – timekeepers, scorers, judges, organising students for events, serving food & drinks, cheering, lifesavers (past students) and our resident BBQ Chef – Grandad Dave!
Yesterday there were three new records set at the carnival. Congratulations to Anika for setting all three new records.
Congratulations to Ben on his performances at the Australian School Sport 10- 12 Years National Track and Field Championships last weekend. Ben became a double National Champion winning the 11 years Tetrathlon – a multi-event where points are scored according to your performance across four individual events (100m, 800m, Long Jump and Shot Put). Ben then backed up his individual performance as a winning member of the Queensland 4x 100m 11 years boys relay to collect his second Gold Medal!
The whole school community congratulates you Ben on your outstanding achievement - well done!
