Vision for Learning

​​​​​​​At St Benedict's we are a peaceful, learning community. Inspired by St Benedict, we unite to 'Walk in God's Ways' as a hope-filled community of learners who enrich our world (School vision and mission statement, 2023).

The Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (2019), sets the national vision for education for all Australians. The declaration names 2 distinct but interconnected goals that are the responsibility of Australian governments and the education community in partnership with young Australians, their families and carers, and the broader community to achieve:

  • Goal 1: The Australian education system promotes excellence and equity.
  • Goal 2: All young Australians become:
    1. ​confident and creative individuals,
    2. successful lifelong learners,
    3. active and informed members of the community.​​

The Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (2019), directs our work as we develop students who become contributing members of our global community who are:

  • Literate
  • Numerate
  • Respectful
  • Empathetic and Compassionate
  • Faith-Filled
  • Successful Lifelong Learners
  • Confident and Creative
  • Active and Informed.

At St Benedict's we are called as educators to ensure that every student is progressing and thriving as a person. We strive to provide our students with an education that promotes equity and excellence for all.

As such, our school believes and is committed to:

  • Promoting high expectations for all students and staff.
  • Providing the right time, resources and support for all students and staff to progress and thrive.
  • Using high impact, effective instructional practices that support, challenge, and engage all students.
  • Delivering lessons designed to ensure active participation of students in their learning.
  • Designing, structuring and delivering learning experiences where students can confidently and clearly demonstrate what they know, understand and can do in relation to the expected curriculum achievement standard.
  • Monitoring and evaluating the success of delivered learning experiences to ensure student engagement, progress and achievement.
  • Engaging in reflective practices to provide productive feedback that drives learning forward.
  • Nurturing a growth mindset that promotes a positive learning environment for all.​

Brisbane Catholic Education further supports our vision stating that the work of our schools is to “Teach, Challenge and Transform".​

All planning, teaching, assessing, and reporting at St Benedict's is therefore informed and guided by the:
