Our School

St Benedict’s is co-educational, catering for boys and girls from Years 1 – 8. Most live in the Ngaio, Khandallah, Broadmeadows, Johnsonville area. Some travel from other parts of Wellington to attend our school.

Most students are NZ European. We do however consider ourselves a multicultural school as we have students from all around the world attend St Benedict’s.  30 nationalities are represented.

St Benedict’s is a signatory to the Code of Compliance for International Students, and we accept enrolments for fee-paying students from other countries.

We aim to foster an environment where students:

  • Feel they belong and are accepted as a special person, created by God, with individual gifts and needs.
  • Develop a positive attitude towards learning and are equipped with the skills necessary for independent learning.
  • Are challenged to develop initiative, co-operation, self discipline and independence, with a sense of responsibility and fair play.
  • Show respect and develop an acceptance and concern for all people and for the environment.
