|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.
We certainly have been out and about so far this term! From watching the classic story ‘Possum Magic’ come to life in Toowoomba last week, to the choir students participating at the Queensland Catholic Music Festival in Brisbane on Friday, our students have had some great opportunities and results! Thanks must go to our dedicated staff for their organisation for each of these experiences.
Congratulations to the Year 4, 5 and 6 students for the research and hard work they put into their entries for the Schools Plant Science Competition. Over 145 schools registered to participate and over 3600 students entered the competition project. From this, we had students win awards in both the science and art sec-tions, and St Stephen’s won the Most Outstanding School Art Award!
We also were successful in receiving a grant from the STEM Hub Darling Downs & South West that will cover the cost of the bus trip. The Hub is committed to supporting National Science Week and we are very thankful for their generosity.
ROADWORKS ON MURRAY STREET
We have been advised by Council that roadworks are to be carried out this Thursday & Friday 22nd & 23rd August on Murray Street. Please do not park in Murray Street on these days.
Thank you for your cooperation.
On Sunday 4th August, a team of students from travelled to Highfields to participate in the HDNA Jill Stockley Challenge. The students won 6 out of their 7 games and narrowly missed out on playing in the grand final match. They won their play off match and ended up placing 3rd out of 14 teams.
The Year 4,5 & 6 students participated in the Catholic School’s Netball and Touch Football Carnivals during Catholic Education Week. The students showed great enthusiasm in all their games and their skills improved throughout the day. Thanks to the teachers for the many hours of training and organisation put into today and to the parents for cheering from the sidelines. Special congratulations to the Senior Competitive Netball team for winning their division in conjunction with St Thomas More’s.
A new set of Rugby League jerseys have been designed and delivered to St Stephen’s this term. Thanks to the generosity of Ray White Rural Pittsworth (James & Sally Croft), Mark Droney Real Estate, Lloyd and Clare Cronin and the Hintz Family, these jerseys are now ready for our students to represent St Stephen’s with pride. We look forward to showing them off soon.
