Immersion Tour to Northern Territory in 2023
After the last few years of not being able to organise excursions and tours for school in Australia we are pleased to advise that the College will be undertaking an Immersion Tour to Northern Territory in 2023.
We believe this immersion tour will fosters cultural awareness, empathy and independence.
I have attached a Flyer that provides further information about this immersion tour. Please contact Mr Peter Morris Year 10 Coordinator, if you require an expression of interest or need further information about this tour.

Again this year, the Social Justice team are supporting local charity, We Are Community, who service the Macarthur Region. In order to do this, the team is asking for food donations as well as warm items such as blankets, hats, scarves, gloves and socks. Each STRIVE group has been allocated a food item to donate which can be brought into school every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from now until Monday Week 2, Term 3 during STRIVE lessons.
Bennies Bring a Blanket is back next term, Friday Week 2, with a few new additions. This is an afternoon and evening where students can experience being outdoors during winter with little food or equipment to keep warm. There will be permission notes sent out via Compass for attendance with all details. More information for this event is coming soon!
Student images missing from the newsletter
There are many fantastic opportunities available for students at our College. Unfortunately many of those experiences are not photographed due to student permission to publish forms not being returned to the College Office.
If your student has been involved in a sporting team or extra curricular activity but their photo has not been published in the newsletter please complete the permission to publish form and lodge the form at the College Office.
Families of current Year 5 students are invited to complete an Expression of Interest for Enrolment for Year 7, 2024.
Expression of Interest is not a formal enrolment application, but an opportunity to be included in St Benedict's College information and enrolment timelines as they become available.
Information in this calendar list is correct at the time of publication but is subject to change without notice.
