Respectful Responsible Relationships

At St Benedict’s Catholic School we seek to live the Christian values of love and trust of one another and of respect for all of God’s creation. Through Jesus, as our role model for how we should live and act towards each other, we believe that:

  • everyone has the right to be treated with respect and to live in safety;

  • the establishment of a happy and safe environment is the shared responsibility of all staff, parents, carers and students;

  • children learn essential social skills, such as self-discipline and conflict management best when modelled by significant adults such as parents and teachers;

  • as each child is made in the image and likeness of God and brings their own unique experiences and gifts to school, levels of social skills will vary;

  • clearly defined rights and responsibilities allow all members of the school community to promote ownership by all;

  • action taken to resolve conflict is based on respect, forgiveness and justice.

We work to maintain a happy and supportive environment that maximizes learning experiences and develops skills that enable each student to contribute positively to the school community.

There are two commandments I give you:   Love God. (Deuteronomy 5:6-15) Love others (John 13:34)
