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.

Community News 

It is timely at the end of Semester one to look back on the first part of the year and acknowledge everything we have accomplished as a community at St Stephen’s School. Last Wednesday night I was fortunate enough to be at the Empire Theatre to hear, and see, our school choir perform. What a wonderful night! The joy on the faces of all the children who participated in the Sing-Out event was contagious with many members of the audience. Not only were the children entertaining in their performance, they are also to be commended on the way they conducted themselves throughout the day. Their behavior was admirable. It’s the extra-curricular activities like Sing-Out that add a ‘richness’ to the education of our children. These activities are numerous at St Stephen’s. Throughout Semester one we have celebrated masses, liturgies, visits to Beauaraba Lodge, Palm Sunday Parish Mass, Road to Jerusalem, ANZAC day parade, mother’s day stall, cross country, athletics carnivals, swim-ming carnivals, gala days and grandparent’s open day. It’s a long list of accomplishments.

The MacKillop Club, under the guidance of Lisa Cavanagh organized a magnificent morning tea as part of the cancer council’s “Biggest Morning Tea” to help raise funds for cancer re-search. We all know someone who has cancer or been touched by cancer. Showing support for members of the community in which we work, and live, is an important part of the ethos of our school. Thank you for the support you have shown me and my family over the past six months.

We have a lot to look forward to during Semester two. The school’s Centennial Celebrations on the 6th and 7th August will be a wonderful time to reflect on the St Joseph’s/St Stephen’s School community. It is shaping up to be a truly memorable week-end. I’m sure you won’t want to miss out on the numerous activities that are planned. If you can help out in any way, please complete the form in the latest newsletter.

On Saturday 6th August 2016 there are plans for some fete celebrations in the school grounds followed by an Art Show in the evening. On Sunday 7th August there will be a mass followed by some more family fun activities.

Celebrating 100 years in 2016One of the main projects for the Centenary is a mosaic featuring Saint Mary of the Cross Mackillop, which will be placed on the front of St Stephen’s School. The mosaic will consist of small tiles from Venice and has been designed by Alain Colfs, a Belgium National residing near Warwick. Alain also designed the St Francis De Sales Mosaic on the Catholic Church in Millmerran.

Please visit our special Centenary Celebrations page for more information and pass the link on to any past students you know. The page includes accommodation suggestions for Pittsworth.
