To our school community
Following recent earthquakes and flooding we have posted the message below for our community about our emergency procedures.
As a reminder of our emergency procedures, in the event of a major earthquake while we are at school we will follow our evacuation procedures and all children will be kept at school until collected by a parent or nominated adult.
Our Emergency Guidelines can be accessed here http://www.st-benedicts.school.nz/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/5-11-Guidelines-for-Emergency-Management.pdf
Thank you and God Bless
Dave Lamont, Principal
We are a Year 1-8 Catholic School that provides a stimulating learning environment for our students where they can experience a continuous education from new entrant through to the end of their Primary schooling.
Our school motto ‘Developing our Children’s Minds, Growing our Children’s Hearts’ is about helping the children develop their talents so that they are able to be the best that they can possibly be in everything they do.
The four symbols of our logo reflect what is important to us at our school.
The cross represents Catholic Traditions and the values of St. Benedict’s School.
The book represents the school’s commitment to learning and its strong emphasis on high academic achievement.
The group of people represents that we are a community who work closely together and build strong relationships with each other.
The ball represents children involved and enjoying themselves in sport and having an active life.
We place a strong emphasis on the Gospel Values. Our values of creativity, perseverance, integrity and empathy have been developed from our founding order the Brigidine Sisters. These underpin everything we do.
If you would like to visit our school, or have a question about our school please contact us.
