St Benedict's Catholic Primary School Mango Hill Queensland

St. Benedict’s Catholic Primary School officially opened in 2008 and is now in its eighth year of operation. The school is situated in the picturesque suburb of Mango Hill and caters for students from Prep to Year 6.

St Benedict’s is committed to planning and providing a high quality, 21st century Catholic education; an education focused on the development of the human person created whole in the image and likeness of God, bringing faith, life and culture into our school life. Our dedicated and professional teachers deliver unique and authentic learning opportunities, differentiating the curriculum to cater for all learners.

In 2015, we continue to plan, teach and assess using the Australian National Curriculum in the areas of English, Mathematics, Science, History and Geography. Queensland Essential Learnings will remain for all other learning areas. Our Curriculum is further supported and enriched by the presence of Specialist Teachers in the areas of Physical Education, Music, Instrumental Music, Visual Art and Chinese. In 2015, our successful 1:1 laptop program will continue in Years 5 and 6.

Brisbane Catholic EducationWe are a distinctive Catholic Community whose unique culture and ethos permeates the spirit of the Benedictine teachings and traditions. Our learning and teaching reflects the global, national and local contexts as we work together to achieve our vision for learning: “We walk in God’s ways where together we live, love, learn and celebrate.”

On Friday evening many of our Year 3 and 4 students will be celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation both at St. Benedict’s (5pm) and at the Holy Cross Church (7pm). Archbishop Mark Coleridge along with our priests of the Parish will confirm our students in one of the Sacraments of Initiation. The Sacraments of Initiation into the Catholic Church are Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist which will be celebrated later in the year. We extend our prayerful support and best wishes to our students and families at this special time.

COLOUR & KINDNESS DAY: Gold coin fundraising day for Mater Miracles.
At St. Benedict’s we are delighted to be able to support the Mater Hospital as they continue to care for premature babies and critically ill babies in their struggle to survive. Next Monday we welcome a guest speaker from the Mater Miracles team to our assembly to share some of the amazing work that the Mater team are involved in. There may even be an appearance from the Mater Miracle Mascot!

On Wednesday 1st June (next Wednesday) we are having a Colour & Kindness gold coin donation day to support the Mater Hospital team as they continue to care for very tiny babies, struggling to survive. We invite all children to get into the spirit of the day by wearing fancy sneakers. You might like to be creative and decorate your sneakers. Yellow and pink are the colours that the Mater Miracle foundation always uses. So feel free to add a touch of colour to your uniform that day. Remember that your sneakers must be lace up ones for safety. Please bring a gold coin to support the wonderful life saving work that the Mater Hospital team offers in Brisbane.

We are so proud to have Madison and Sarah Pepper in our St. Benedict’s community. They are precious Mater Miracles! The annual Mater Miracle 5k Fun Walk is on Sunday 5th June at Southbank. You may like to join the growing Pepper Team! Details are included in this week's newsletter.
