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
Congratulations students, staff, parents and friends of St Stephen’s school community. You have successfully navigated another school year. Every school year has its ups and downs, its “highlights’ and ‘lowlights”. However, 2016 will always be significant for me for many reasons. Mainly because I have been given the wonderful privilege of returning to the community where I grew up and attended primary school as principal.

Looking back over 2016, our centennial year, I believe we have accomplished much as a community. Our year 6 children will leave our small school community on Friday after their graduation from primary school and step into high school where they will continue to grow and learn. I wish them all the best as they continue their educational journey. I’d also like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a happy and holy Christmas and thank you for your continued support and encouragement.

"May this Advent season be a time for bringing hope, transformation and fulfillment into the Advent of our lives."
God Bless, Janine

ANDREW CHINN AT ST STEPHEN'S
Monday the 28th was a day of enormous excitement for all the students and teachers here at St Stephen’s. The music of Andrew Chinn is used by Catholic schools and Churches all over the world and to have him here at our school was an incredible experience. As one of the students in my class said, “I nearly fainted when I walked into the hall and Andrew Chinn was there!”

Year 4 rehearsing their song

The students had a wonderful day, workshopping their songs with Andrew and getting their concert ready. I’m sure everyone who came along was blown away by what the students produced in one day! The students were also fortunate to have a live performance of the song we used at our Remembrance Day prayer assembly, “We Remember.” Andrew wrote this song about his father’s slouch hat and was touched that the children had requested he sing it for them. Many of our talented singers had the opportunity to be “back-up singers” for Andrew, doing an amazing job. There were even some surprise back-up singers in Silent Night!

INDONESIAN NEWS

All children have participated in Indonesian language and culture lessons this term. For the Preps it was the beginning of their language journey, while for the Year 6 students, it was great to be able to hold some basic conversations in Bahasa Indonesia. Topics ranged from greetings and numbers, through to favourite activities.
