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 2018 St Stephen’s consists of 141 students, in six 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.


Community News 

Last Wednesday, the students from Year 3 to 6 were invited to listen to two special guests from Cari-tas. Catherine, the Toowoomba Diocesan Director of Caritas and Baskoro, Caritas Indonesia travelled to St Stephens to speak to the students about Project Compassion and how it helps people in so many countries. The students were very respectful and engaged well throughout the talk. Each class is being challenged to raise money towards Project Compassion until the end of term.

Preparations have started for the Sacramental Program for 2019. This year, the Sacrament of Reconcil-iation will be celebrated on Thursday 6th June at 6:30pm. Expression of Interest forms will be sent out to students across the schools prior to the end of term. Students from Year 4 are invited to undertake the Sacrament of Reconciliation this year. Students are encouraged to attend Mass on a regular basis, in particular whilst undertaking the lessons in preparation for the sacrament.

This term students from all year levels have been learning about tuned percussion instruments. Chime bars, bells and Boomwhackers have been used as melody makers. Children have been learning how to play the instruments and encouraged to be creative. The metallophones and xylophone have also been in use, especially in the senior grades where improvisation around the pentatonic scale is proving to be a creative activity.

Last week all students showed dedication to learning their dances with the Footsteps Dance Company. There was a lot of energy on display during the concert on Wednesday evening and it was great to see all students enjoying the opportunity provided for them to learn some great dances.
