Community Partnerships

Below are a selection of some of the recent community partnerships our school have been involved with to benefit our local community and the children's learning experiences.


Platform at the Bridge

Platform is the arts centre at the heart of The Bridge in Easterhouse, and offers a year-round programme of cutting edge theatre, exhibitions, workshops and activities. We have an excellent partnership with them often visiting the theatre with different classes as well as when they deliver drama workshops and performances in school.


Family Action in Rogerfield and Easterhouse

F.A.R.E. is a voluntary organisation who have strong links to the children and families from our school. As well as providing out of school services they work closely with St Benedict's during school time providing experiences for our children. Their aim is to improve the lives of children and families living in disadvantaged neighbourhoods, bringing people of all ages together, building positive relationships and trust. 


The Bike Station

The Bike Station work in collaboration with our cycling club to run training sessions and bike maintenance courses for our children and family. They also help to teach the children about reusing and recycling their old bikes that need repaired not thrown away. They are a great addition to our partnerships hekping to work towards our Sport Scotland Gold Award.


Sense over Secterianism

Each year SOS work with our P7s on existing sectarian tensions and bigotry in general which create social and other barriers between people of different faiths. It helps to make pupils aware of their role in determining the shape their society takes and it empowers them to bring down these barriers within their own lives and communities.


Celtic FC Foundation

Celtic FC Foundation provided St Andrew's Secondary School with funding to buy musical instruments for our learning community. As part of the legacy, woodwind and brass tutors visit our school weekly to teach the children these instruments - an opportunity they would not have had without the support of St Andrew's Secondary and         Celtic FC. Celtic FC Foundation also supports us in many ways, by supporting our annual Sports Day and through supporting families with Food Packages each year.


SCIAF Appeal     

St Benedict's has long been a supporter of SCIAF and their annual Wee Box Appeal. This year, due to the growing migrant crisis and flow of refugees from the Middle East into Europe, our children asked if the could specifically raise money to give to SCIAF for this purpose.
