Welcome to St Benedict's Catholic Primary School Yeppoon!
St Benedict's Catholic Primary School is part of the Rockhampton Diocese. We are located in Yeppoon and associated with the Capricorn Coast Catholic Parish.
As part of Catholic Education in the Diocese of Rockhampton, our community is invited to journey with Christ and with each other, full of vitality, optimism and a sense of fun, alongside the many communities that are part of our vast and rich Diocese.
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.
St Benedict's strives to be a community that is compassionate, just, respectful and where families and children; feel important, are happy and experience success and enjoy holistic learning opportunities.
We endeavour to:
"Listen with the ear of the heart and be people of hospitality that welcome the stranger or visitor as if he or she were Christ himself." – Rule of St Benedict
