rising sun symbolises our journey towards God and reminds us of our origins with the Petrie Parish which shares a similar symbol. Our school is now part of the St Benedict's Catholic Parish incorporating, North Lakes, Mango Hill and Griffin.
The four large letters at the angles of the Cross (CSPB) stand for
Crux, Sancti, Patris, Benedicti, the Cross of the Holy Father Benedict.
coloured ground leads the followers to Christ and also symbolises the links to the local geography with
green fields, water flowing through the site from rain and leading to the waters of Moreton Bay.
Our school motto,
Walk in God’s Ways challenges our community to actively engage with Jesus’ message as a model for living.
The Rule of Saint Benedict has, for centuries, been the guide of religious communities. Saint Benedict’s rules of obedience, humility, and contemplation are not only prerequisites for formal religious societies; they also provide an invaluable model for anyone desiring to live more simply. They provide guidance and inspiration for anyone seeking peace and fulfilment in their home and work communities and present a contemporary model for living with issues facing us now ~ stewardship, relationships, authority, community, balance, work, simplicity and prayer. Benedict taught moderation in all things; the dignity of work; drawing closer to God through the renewal of the mind, placing a strong emphasis on learning and scholastic disciplines.
