Principal's Welcome

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Townsville’s newest Catholic primary school.  

At St Benedict’s we believe that every student has God given gifts for success and these flourish in an innovative learning culture. As a modern, forward-thinking school, we provide a differentiated approach to learning that both supports and challenges our students within a flexible learning environment.

Our school’s culture reflects the grace and spirit of our Patron Saint, St Benedict, known as a gentle, dignified, strong, peace-loving man, who lived a contemplative life and honoured our motto, ‘God in all of life’ .

Benedictine spirituality is the foundation of the meditation prayer life which all Catholic schools across our Diocese practise. Student resilience and wellbeing are essential for both academic and social development, and we believe meditation helps to rebalance our students, providing them with a spiritual practice that creates a positive impact on their wellbeing.

Please explore our website to get a feel for the safe, supportive and respectful learning environment we offer our students. Please reach out with any enquiries or to arrange a tour. I look forward to welcoming you into our growing school community.
