Why choose a Catholic school?
Choosing a school is an important decision for your child and your family. With a strong focus on student wellbeing, inclusion and excellence in all pursuits, our school community is vibrant, proud and highly regarded within the wider community.
Catholic school students:
- experience belonging — We believe the best way for students to get the most out of their schooling is to feel connected to their peers, their teacher and their school community.
- experience opportunity — With access to excellent resources and expert teachers, we create real opportunities for students.
- experience the dedication — Our Catholic school teachers are dedicated to delivering the best faith-based educational experience to every student.
- experience our difference — Catholic schools focus on the whole child, encouraging growth in all aspects of a well-rounded education including social, spiritual, cultural, environmental, sporting, creative and academic.
- experience their best — Every student's 'best' is different, and we work collaboratively with parents to help students realise their potential.
Flexible learning spaces
Learning in different ways is the way of the world. At St Benedict's, we don’t take a one-size-fits all approach when it comes to your child, nor do we when it comes to our work spaces in which your child is expected to learn.
St Benedict’s Catholic School offers a flexible working environment to encourage learning success. Students can work how best suits them. We aim to balance flexible learning with structured learning for best outcomes.Read More
