Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Townsville’s newest Catholic primary school for boys and girls from Kindergarten to Year 6.  

St Benedict’s provides an exciting opportunity to be part of the establishment of a new learning community, exploring contemporary directions for learning in primary schools and working collaboratively to develop and enact our vision. We believe that every student has God given gifts for success and these flourish in an innovative learning culture. At St Benedict’s we believe in providing a differentiated approach to learning that both supports and challenges our students within a flexible learning environment.

We are building our school charism and school values with consideration of our Patron Saint, St Benedict, whose contemplative spirituality, his thinking about the future of the church and his directions for building community within the church, provide a valuable foundation for our school.

Benedictine spirituality is the foundation of the meditation prayer life which all Catholic schools across our Diocese practise. We believe meditation builds community and St Benedict shows us the way of community.  

Our school is blessed to be part of the Catholic Parish known as the Ministerial Region of the Good Shepherd, currently led by Fr Dave Lancini.

On behalf of St Benedict’s Catholic School I would like to thank you for your interest in our school and I welcome your enquiries.
