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.

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
Wow! What an amazing week end of celebrations. Many stories were shared about our school over the week end. Stories of a small country school founded in 1916 in Weale Street Pittsworth by visionaries. Many, many people contributed to the success of the centennial celebrations. I believe that is why the week end was such a success. It was the result of amazing team work. Registration commenced at 1pm on Saturday and before long there was a line up back to the Street. Walking down the line of people queuing up was like taking a trip down memory lane. If there is a ‘sound’ that can be attributed to HAPPINESS, then that is the sound that I heard all day long on Saturday. There was a hum of pure HAPPINESS and JOY as I walked around the school grounds. If we could harness that energy, we would have lit up the town.

YEAR 3 NEWS
Wow! What a wonderful weekend of centenary celebrations! It was amazing to be a part of them, listening to the laughs and the giggles and the memories. So many wonderful stories which will no doubt be reflected on for some time to come.

The children loved performing their Footloose dance on Saturday afternoon and really looked the part. There were some pretty groovy movers and shakers! Thank you to parents for the effort you put in with their outfits.

Our models also came up a treat and looked great on display in the hall. It was a long process but certainly worth the effort.

During our Science unit, Beneath our Feet, the children will be looking at different soils from around our area. I have asked each child to bring in some samples of the types of soils that they have around their home so that we can study them.
