St. Benedict's Catholic Primary School acknowledges the Gubbi Gubbi people as the first owners of the land on which the school is built.
Officially opened in 2008. St Benedict's Primary School is located in Mango Hill and caters for students from Prep to Year 6. St Benedict's sits within a very high growth area for population. In 2022 the school became four stream with 4 classes in each year level. Current enrolments sit at approximately 760 students across 28 classes. St Benedict's College was established in 2013, and operates on the same grounds, but with a separate Administration and staff. We also share our grounds with St Benedict's Kindergarten. This continued growth in our educational precinct means we can now cater for students from Kindergarten to Year 12.
St Benedict's is diverse community of learners. We have a high number of Catholic families who attend the school, with a number of students identifying from other religions. We are also a culturally diverse community, welcoming families from a number of different cultural background and nationalities. Our staff community numbers more than 80 people, consisting of teaching staff, school officers and other administrative staff. The teaching staff predominantly consists of teachers with between 1-15 years teaching experience. All staff are dedicated professionals, leading learning, catering for individual needs, and setting high standards for all students, in every classroom.
We are a distinctive Catholic Community whose unique culture and ethos permeates through our words and actions. We are founded on the charism of St Benedict, whose rule offers the foundation to our work and the voice to our community.
