|Welcome to our website.....
For over 99 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 2016 St Stephen’s consists of 132 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. All students participate in the social and emotional development program: YOU CAN DO IT.
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.

Bee-Bots are exciting little robots designed for use by young children. These colourful, easy-to-operate, and friendly little robots are a perfect tool for teaching sequencing, estimation, problem-solving, and just having fun!! Robot Turtles is a board game for little programmers! Robot Turtles sneakily teaches pre-schoolers the fundamentals of programming, from coding to functions, while making silly turtle noises!
Jackie French: We read lots of books by Australian author Jackie French and wondered why so many of her stories are about Wombats. We discovered she lives on a farm and loves all of her many animals, but Wombats are her favourite. She is dyslexic, which means it is hard for her to spell, so she uses her computer to help her with her writing. Year 5/6 -
Edison Robots: The Edison Robot is the perfect base for teaching a wide range of STEM topics, including robotics and computer programming.
