About our school

Mount St Benedict College was founded by the Sisters of

the Good Samaritan in the Order of St Benedict in 1966 and celebrates fifty eight years of educating young women. The College belongs to the community of ten schools across Australia called Good Samaritan Education (GSE). Established in 2011 by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan, the mission of Good Samaritan Education is to sustain and nurture our Catholic schools as Good Samaritan Benedictine communities of learning.

The core values of the College are Pax, Hospitality and Stewardship, and the promotion of holistic education in the spirit of Benedictine and Good Samaritan tradition.

The College’s Learning Experience and Wellbeing and Learning Model address the faith and spirituality needs of students, their wellbeing priorities and their learning needs for the future.

Learning experiences at Mount St Benedict College are developed in response to the diverse needs of our students, leading to a wide range of opportunities which meet the needs of individual students.

‘Bennies’ girls are able to develop their talents and become articulate, confident and compassionate young women, equipped to transform our world.
