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.”
