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.

Twilight Markets 9th NovemberCOMMUNITY NEWS

Bishop Michael will be visiting the Capricorn Coast Parish on the weekend of the 27th and 28th October, presiding at each of the parish masses. As part of this annual visit we are fortunate to have Bishop Michael visit St Benedict’s on Friday 26 October. Bishop Michael will attend our Friday assembly which will be presented by Year 1P for World Teacher’s Day and morning tea hosted by Year 1E. He will then spend time visiting a number of classrooms and various aspects of the school.

All parents and friends are invited to join us for our assembly and morning tea. We look forward to welcoming Bishop Michael to St Benedict’s.

Included with our latest newsletter is an e-safety brochure regarding access to connected devices. The information is listed for Preschool children (our Prep aged students), however I believe there are many excellent pieces of advice for parents of all primary school aged children. I will include another brochure next week on smartphones.


On Monday, the coding club students continued their task of creating musical art using Makey, Makey and Scratch. On Tuesday, the Make and Build Club challenge was to build a paper aeroplane using only straws and paper hoops. The winner was the team that was able to fly their plane the furthest. On Thursday in Art Club, the students continued their masterpieces using chalk pastels, which they began last term.
