Click here to see some of the incredible pumpkin carvings from our PTA 'Harvest of Hope' Festival. The children were invited to carve a pumpkin to bring joy, hope and happiness to our community. Thank you to everyone who took part. We hope you enjoyed walking the trail around our Daily Mile Track.

DRUMBA comes to St Benedict's!

School has been buzzing with the sound of drums and energized children as we welcomed Jake and Kyle from Drumba to lead workshops with our children. Drumba is a new and growing activity that combines the skills of music and drumming with aerobic style physical activity. It was an amazing day and something that we hope to build into both our curricular and extra-curricular opportunities in the future! Check out the video below and further insights into the day on our PE & Sport page of the website.
