|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.
Schools are by their nature very busy places! Last week we welcomed all our students back to school as COVID – 19 restrictions continue to be gradually lifted and our lives return to normal. A note of caution however – there have been a few sick children, (and staff) this week. Therefore, it is important we remain vigilant. Washing our hands thoroughly, using hand sanitiser, staying home if we have a cough or high temperature and maintaining social distance.
The health department has released some pleasing statistics showing the incredible drop in the number of people who have contracted the flu this year compared to previous years. Experts believe it is because of most of the population practicing good hygiene.
On another positive note, the PWD carpark commenced construction at the beginning of the week. What a wonderful asset this will be for our school. If everything goes according to plan, the PWD carpark will be completed in a couple of weeks.
Other upcoming school improvements include the installation of sunshades over the Senior Adventure Playground. Thanks to the Parents and Friends Association for their hard work and generosity. These sunshades will be a welcomed addition to our school playground all year round, particularly in the summer months.
As all students have returned to school, please remember that if you wish to speak to your child’s teacher regarding any issues please contact your child’s teacher via email or put a note in their school diary to arrange an appointment. Teachers are not available to take phone calls during school hours. Thank you for your understanding with this matter.
Finally, as online learning from home is now finished, teachers will no longer be uploading schoolwork onto the TEAMS site for parents to complete at home with their students. Whilst the TEAMS site was very effective during the first five weeks of term to deliver on-line learning, it is not physically possible nor necessary for teachers to provide both face-to-face learning and on-line learning during their workdays.
We’re in for a cold week. Rug up and stay warm.
