St. Benedict’s Catholic Primary School
officially opened in 2008. 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.
At St Benedict’s we follow the expectations
set by the Australian Curriculum to make informed decisions about what our
students should be taught, regardless of where they live or their background.
Our teachers collaboratively plan teaching and learning opportunities in
alignment with the national standards specified in the Australian curriculum in
ways that best meet their students' needs and interests.
At St Benedict’s we fully implement all Key
Learning Areas of the Australian Curriculum from Prep to Year 6:
English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and
Social Sciences (Prep to Year 6: History and Geography, Years 3 – 6: Civics and
Citizenship and Years 5 – 6: Economics and Business), Technologies
(Digital Technology and Design and Technologies), The Arts (Dance, Drama,
Music, Visual Arts and Media Arts), Health & Physical Education and
Languages (Years 3 – 6: Chinese).
At St Benedict’s we also use the Religion
Curriculum P-12 to plan and implement teaching and learning experiences for our
students in Religious Education. The Religion Curriculum P-12 developed by Brisbane
Catholic Education, involves the teaching of four strands: Sacred Texts,
Beliefs, Church and Christian Life. These strands are interrelated and are
taught in an integrated way. The Religion Curriculum is taught with the same
academic rigour as the Key Learning Areas specified in the Australian
Curriculum and our learners are given multiple opportunities as they engage
with the content to demonstrate how they have been successful in their learning
We 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.”
