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.

This Sunday (23rd October) we celebrate our final School Family Mass at 9am followed by the annual Parish Feast Day Celebrations. The Mass is in MacKillop Hall and the celebrations are in the school grounds. The Parish Fun Day includes;

  • The drawing of the Silver Circle
  • Reburying of the Time Capsule (assisted by two lucky students – names drawn on the day)
  • Morning Tea
  • BBQ lunch
  • Games for children including – bottle stall, SPLAT the Teacher, face painting, quoits, paper plane throwing competition
  • Decorated bike or scooter competition

All monies raised on the day go towards the much needed renovations on the church. Painting has begun this week and will continue for the next three weeks. Whilst the church is out of action, MacKillop Hall will be the venue for all masses, except for weekday masses which, with the exception of All Souls Day Mass (1st November), will be in the meeting room at the presbytery. The year 2 Mass advertised for next Wednesday has been cancelled.

With our Mission Day prayer celebration coming up on the 26th of October (facilitated by Year 4), it is mindful that we remember the Catholic Social Teaching of Preferential Option for the Poor. This term, as we have done for some years, students will participate in activities to raise money and awareness of those in the world less fortunate than us, in particular those assisted by The Mission for Mercy. On Thursday the 27th of October, students are invited to participate in a “Crazy Sock Day”. For a gold coin donation to go to the Mission for Mercy, students and staff can wear their craziest socks (not necessarily on their feet!) in an effort to “Sock it to Poverty”. For lunch next Thursday, I am also asking students to forego their delicious home prepared lunch and dine on a simple cupful of rice – the only food many children in the world survive on daily.
