|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.
Ash Wednesday celebrations will take place for the Prep to Year 3 classes on Wednesday the 1st of March at 9am in MacKillop Hall. The years 4 to 6 classes will participate in the Parish Celebrations at 12pm at St Stephen's Church. Everyone is welcome to participate in either of these celebrations.
The day before Ash Wednesday is called Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Tuesday. This is traditionally the day when people cleaned out their pantry before Lent began when they would be fasting. At Morning Tea on Shrove Tuesday, the Year 6 students will participate in a pancake tossing competition, followed by a staff competition.
Our Leader's mass is on Friday the 3rd of March at 9am, to be celebrated by Father Thomas. All members of our school community are welcome to attend. At this mass our Year 6's will receive their Leader's badges and shirts. The four leaders of our school MacKillop Club (Nickayla, Lachlan, Patrick and Callum) will also receive their Mary MacKillop badges at this mass.
