Our Emblem and Motto

Our Emblem


The 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 Holy Cross Parish incorporating Redcliffe, North Lakes and Mango Hill.

The four large letters at the angles of the Cross (CSPB) stand for Crux, Sancti, Patris, Benedicti, the Cross of the Holy Father Benedict.

The coloured ground leads the followers to Christ aSt Benedicts logo clr.jpgnd 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 Motto

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.
 
At St Benedict’s, in keeping with our motto Walk Poster Final for web.jpgWalk in God’s Ways, we expect all members of our school community to WALK together in our approach to behaviour education and management. The establishment of our school code of behaviour exemplifies our commitment to the promotion and development of a safe and supportive environment.
