St Benedict’s Catholic School has a focus on student learning.
Success for all students is nurtured through engaging and challenging learning experiences. Additionally, positive relationships between the family, the student and the school will be fostered in order to develop the partnership vital for this success.
At St Benedict's Catholic School, traditional and contemporary approaches to learning will be used to actively involve our students in the learning process. Our curriculum program and teaching strategies will incorporate opportunities appropriate to the development needs of each learning stage, including play experiences in the early years, followed by hands on experiences and opportunities to apply academic knowledge as learning progresses.
All schools in the Townsville Diocese work from the Learning Areas of the Australian Curriculum to develop classroom learning programs. St Benedict’s Catholic School will enact the Australian Curriculum through maintaining the integrity of individual subjects while also providing opportunities for purposeful connections between learning areas in fun and meaningful ways.
Modern facilities and innovative programs will provide learning experiences that discern connections between our unique place as human beings in this world and our relationship to our surroundings. Teachers will develop programs to ensure the curriculum comes to life for our students and offers opportunities to connect with learning. Important twenty-first century skills, such as critical thinking, communication, problem-solving, collaboration and creativity are also included across our curriculum, as we endeavour to ensure the curriculum is accessible for all students learners.
