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 six 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 newly launched Learning Framework addresses the faith and spirituality needs of students, their wellbeing priorities and their learning needs for the future. The Mount St Benedict College Learning Framework Tree is symbolic of our learner; she is at the heart of the tree, its trunk. Just like the tree, our learner grows and changes in the years she is a student at the College.
The Framework is based on our belief that Learning at the College is inspired and informed by our Benedictine, Good Samaritan heritage. Our students are encouraged to contribute to our Catholic community with the gifts given to them and learn how to use these gifts to make a difference in the world.
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. Students are able to develop confidence in their use of technology and build their higher order thinking skills. ‘Bennies’ girls are able to develop their talents and become articulate, confident and compassionate young women, equipped to transform our world.
