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.

KIDS CONNECT

This week our year 5/6’s will spend most of their school week at the Wellcamp Airport. I’d like to congratulate Mr Blaikie, Mrs Ostwald and all of the children in year 5/6 for the tremendous amount of work and effort they have put into this conference. I have seen the children grow in confidence, maturity and excitement as they tackled many tasks way beyond their years. Finally, this week, all their hard work, planning and dreams for the Kid’s connect conference 2016 will be realised. If you have the opportunity to come to the airport on Wednesday afternoon at 5pm for the Showcase presentation, please do so as I’m sure you will be impressed.

MUSIC

As Term 3 comes to an end, so do music lessons. This term all classes have experienced activities which develop skills in beat and rhythm, (body percussion and percussion instruments), in tune singing, (call and response songs), percussion playing and listening. Children have used the tuned and untuned percussion instruments to accompany music and to create their own music. Through using the instruments, children also develop skills of performance, dynamics and pitch. They have also listened to and reflected on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music making comparisons to other music.

We have had lots of fun in our lessons this term and while music lessons will finish at the end of the term, choir will still continue at lunch time on Fridays. Next term Indonesian lessons will replace music lessons on Fridays.
