The school is named after St Bede , a Benedictine monk, who was born in England in 673. He lived a simple and faith filled life, and devoted his whole life to learning, teaching and writing about his faith. From St Bede we learn the importance of being faithful to God in every ordinary task. Our school was established by the Good Samaritan Sisters in 1963 and run by them until 1985. We are fortunate in being able to maintain strong links with the Good Samaritan communities in Canberra and Queanbeyan.
