Our Transformation and Diversity Team holds open forum meetings where conversations are explored about our own knowledge and experience of transformation and diversity and the extent to which we embrace and promote individual and institutional cohesion within the St Benedict’s community.
The forum engages in conversations with the boys, parents and staff in a process that helps understand the individual’s lived experience on campus. Going forward we will continue to focus on our commitment to develop leadership capacity around equity and transformation across the school and improve our school climate for diverse students, staff and visitors.
Statement of Intent
Since its founding in 1958, St Benedict’s has always been a school that has opened its doors to pupils of all races. St Benedict’s reaffirms the importance of diversity as a core value and encourages all its stakeholders to regularly undertake a critical self-examination of its approach to equity and diversity. This belief, together with the impetus produced by ISASA’s initiatives in this regard – in particular, the publication of the ISASA Toolkit for Diversity and Transformation led to the establishment of a Transformation and Diversity Team at St Benedict’s.
