|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.
Welcome back! We have a busy term ahead with many important ‘weeks’ to be acknowledged and celebrated including NAIDOC week, Catholic Edu-cation week, Book Week, Mathematics Week, Wellbeing Week and Science Week! We look forward to sharing these with you across the term. Keep an eye on our calendar for these dates.
All parents and caregivers are invited to come along to a Meet & Greet Morning Tea in MacKillop Hall on Monday 22nd July after school drop off. This is an excellent opportunity to meet other families in the school community. Parents with younger children are encouraged to come along.
Prep Interviews will be held in Week 3 on Monday 29th and Tuesday 30th July. I look forward to meeting our newest students for 2020. If you are still needing to enrol your child for Prep 2020, please pick up an enrolment package from the office. We also look forward to our Prep Expo Open Day on Thursday 8th August.
P & F MEETING POSTPONED
The first P & F meeting for the term will be on Thursday 8th August at 7pm.
CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
Catholic Education Week is in Week 3 this term. Catholic Education Week is an opportunity for all 306
Catholic schools in Queensland to celebrate and promote their distinctive mission and ethos.
The theme for this year’s celebrations is: Many Voices. One Spirit. St Stephen’s School strives to make a difference in the lives of those in our schools and in the wider community by challenging our young people to live out the message of Jesus and to reach their full potential as compassionate, contributing, life-giving members of society.
On Monday 29th of July, Year 4/5 will lead the whole school in a Eucharistic Celebration with Fr Thomas. This coincides with Grandparent’s Day at St Stephen’s. We would like to extend an invitation to all parents and grandparents to join us in the MacKillop Hall for Mass at 9am. This will be followed by a shared morning tea for grandparents and parents. Grandparents will then be welcomed into the classrooms to spend time with their grandchildren.
