About Us
 
 
Mission Statement
 
The Catholic community of St. Benedict School believes that by demonstrating our faith in God and respect for each other, we can create a safe, caring and collaborative environment that promotes life-long learning and celebrates the uniqueness of all individuals.
 
About Our School
 
At St. Benedict School everything that we do ensures the presence of a Catholic environment Jesus' two great commandments - love of God and love of one's neighbour - form the basis of our existence. Daily prayers, liturgical celebrations, the St. Benedict code of respect and safety, the peacemakers' program, the daily curriculum and our interaction with one another all ensure the presence of a Catholic environment.
 
St. Benedict code of respect and safety
 
St. Benedict School is a Catholic school with strong Christian values. It is our goal to provide for our school community of students, staff and parents, a secure, healthy, safe and peaceful environment where there is a shared responsibility for the well-being of all.
 
We all work together in order to teach the students entrusted to our care to become responsible adults with patience and compassion for one another. At St. Benedict School a committee of parents, students and teachers has worked hard to review the code of behaviour so that we may guide our students to get along together in the best possible way.
 
Through this code of behaviour we hope to make the students understand that they must take responsibility for their actions and that there will be consequences according to appropriate and inappropriate behaviour. We hope to teach our students to make the right choices about how to behave so that they will grow in the image of Christ and live the Gospel values.
