|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.
"DO YOUR BIT" - Mary MacKillop
On Monday, we hosted our annual Volunteers Morning tea. Our Volunteers make wonderful contributions to our school community every day. Whether it’s by reading, gardening, recycling, cooking, cleaning, organizing events, washing up or just showing up to provide support. There are numerous ways you can volunteer.
Volunteering may take time and effort, but the rewards are endless. The act of giving not only helps the community, but it also helps the person giving. Our hearts become full of JOY. Be warned volunteering is addictive. The more you volunteer, the more you want to volunteer.
This Thursday night is our Parents and Friends AGM and meeting. If you haven’t been to a meeting before I encourage you come along. Everyone welcome. There are many ways you can volunteer with the Parents and Friends. There are also numerous ways you can assist the school, anything from reading with the children to assisting the tuckshop conveyor. Our MacKillop club members regularly gather to discuss ways they can “Do their bit”.
When times are tough, as they often are. That’s the best time for a good dose of volunteering. Before you know it, you will start to feel better. Give it a try.
Remember - “Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” — Elizabeth Andrew
