|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 are finally here! The last week of school and I am sure you would all agree with me that this year has flown! What a fantastic year it has been too! On behalf of all the staff at St Stephen’s I would like to extend a big thank you to the students for the incredible work and effort they have put into their learning this year and for the growth mindset that they have shown and for getting out of the learning pit when challenges were faced. Thank you also to the parents and families for ensuring the important partnership between the school and home has continued and for working with the teachers to sup-port the education in the classroom.
It is with mixed emotions that we say goodbye to our Year 6 leaders. We will be sad to see them leave, however we are excited for them and the new challenges and experiences they will face in highschool. They were challenged to ‘Make their Mark’ this year, and I can confidently say they have left a mark on each of us here and their enthusiasm, humour and determination as a cohort will always be fondly remembered. We look forward to the Graduation Mass and Dinner and thank all those who have worked so hard to make these important occasions so special and memorable.
Our Transition Day was very successful, and it was so affirming to see all the students excited to spend the day with their new teacher in their classroom. Thank you to those parents who were able to join us for morning tea and to speak to our Guidance Counsellor, Occupational Therapist, Speech Language Pathologist and Inclusion Coach.
We wish the St Stephen’s community a very safe and relaxing holiday, a happy and Holy Christmas and we look forward to seeing you next year!
May God guide you gently through the week,
Fiona Drew -
