|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 2020 St Stephen’s consists of 154 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.
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.
As the school year comes to an end. I’d like to thank children, staff, parents, volunteers and members of the extended Pittsworth community for their continued support of St Stephen’s in 2021. Thanks to you we continue to be a thriving school with students who ‘Strive for Success’ in their learning. Amongst the flooded roads and paddocks, candy canes and tinsel, Christmas Concerts and magical elves, we are getting ready to farewell our year 6 class of 2021, welcome TWO prep classes in 2022, and prepare our current preps to year 5 children for school in 2022.
During these Covid times, we are well and truly aware that the world is not as it should be, however, when we look around our part of the world, I believe we have much to be grateful for. Yesterday proved to be one of the most challenging days of the school year. On Transition Day, the heavens opened, and it bucketed down. The phone rang constantly, and parents came to collect children and take them home safely before the roads closed. Amongst all of this, children, staff and parents kept going. Thank you for your resilience, your strength and your persistence.
May you all have a blessed Christmas with your family. I hope that your get to spend your holidays with family and friends and have a well-earned break. Stay Safe.
