IN the Ap­ple­cross parish, St Bene­dict’s Pri­mary School is a dou­ble-stream Catholic school cater­ing for Kin­der­garten to Year 6.

The school has re­cently un­der­gone an $8 mil­lion up­grade and boasts brand new fa­cil­i­ties that cater for 21st cen­tury learn­ing.

The phi­los­o­phy used to de­liver the cur­ricu­lum is based on the Kathy Walker Ap­proach whereby concepts are ex­plic­itly taught to stu­dents and then made real to them through a range of en­gag­ing in­quiry-based tasks fo­cused on per­sonal in­ter­ests re­lat­ing to the real world.

There are many ex­tracur­ric­u­lar pur­suits such as the STEM Chal­lenge Club, Per­form­ing Arts Club, Choir and in­ter­school sport­ing teams.

The school’s biggest strength is its sense of com­mu­nity.

The fam­ily at­mos­phere that re­sides is ev­i­dent as soon as you walk in the door.

For prospec­tive par­ents there will be an in­for­ma­tion ses­sion on Fri­day, April 28 in the school li­brary.

To ap­ply, call 6217 3500.
