|Welcome to our website.....
For over 100 years, St Stephen’s has been proudly serving the community of Pittsworth and surrounding areas. We strive to be a community in which gospel values permeate the daily life of the school.
In 2020 St Stephen’s consists of 154 students, in seven classrooms. All members of our staff quickly get to know all children and families. Our shared vision for the students of St Stephen’s is for each person to be highly literate, numerate, open to and excited by the prospect of learning, healthy, well-rounded individuals who are good citizens.
Specialist programs are Physical Education, LOTE (Indonesian) and Music, including school choir, and private music lessons.
Parents and community members work within our school classrooms and enjoy interacting with students and staff. Our volunteers gain particular satisfaction and a sense of fulfilment from assisting a child to master something new. Families are encouraged to participate in the School Pastoral Board and the School Parents and Friends and its committees in order to develop and extend the programs the school can offer and its facilities. All parents are welcome to attend Parents and Friends meetings.
St Stephen’s – We strive for success. Celebrate our Spirit.
This week is Catholic Education Week. However due to the Corona virus, many of the activities planned for this week have been cancelled or postponed. Luckily, we were fortunate enough to begin the week with a whole school mass in MacKillop Hall on Monday morning with Fr Thomas (see photo below). Although we couldn’t invite our parent community to join us, we felt blessed to be able to come together as a school community.
Over the past two days Ellen Witham and I have also been interviewing the preps for 2021. What a pleasure it was to meet the next cohort of children and their parents who will begin their schooling with St Stephen’s in 2021. During our interview, I talked to parents about how fortunate we are to have such an active parent community and a number of volunteers who contribute in so many ways to the fabric of St Stephen’s School. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus we have been unable to invite parents and volunteers to partake in most of our school activities. We miss them dearly. Hopefully, we will be able to welcome parents and volunteers back into our school environment soon.
