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 2016, 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 2016, 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.”

WINTER WONDERLAND
Our P&F Association are hosting a lovely evening of food, music and dancing with our Winter Wonderland on the 20th of August. Tickets are available through the P&F, on Flexischools.com.au and are being sold each morning before school. Get a table of ten together and enjoy the evening.

There are also some wonderful auction items for sale on the night as well. My favourite is the football signed by Mal Meninga, Darren Lockyer and Cameron Smith called a “Decade of Dominance” with all the State of Origin results of the last decade and encased in a clear laminate display. There are lots of other great prizes to be won! It should be a great evening!

Also, our next P&F Meeting will be next Wednesday evening the 3rd of August.  All Parents are most welcome to attend.

Catholic Education Week

CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
This week is Catholic Education Week and it is a good opportunity to celebrate the unique nature of our Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese and the wonderful work that is being done in our almost 140 schools for many thousands of students. On assembly our students were presented with a special certificate to recognize the significance of the week instead of the regular Principal Awards.
