Welcome to our website...

St. Thomas’  is an inner-city school on the east side of Brisbane.  As one of 136 affiliated systemic schools in the Archdiocese, our emphasis is education for the whole child in the Catholic Christian tradition.  This means that we value the uniqueness of each person and strive to provide opportunities for their development throughout their individual learning journeys – spiritually, emotionally, socially, psychologically, academically, physically and culturally.

Our school, which commenced in 1929, is an integral part of St. Thomas’ Catholic Parish.  Since separating from East Coorparoo in 1927, this parish has been served by the Missionary of the Sacred Heart Priests.  The school was started by the Good Samaritan Sisters, who remained teaching here until 2004. In living out our faith justly and with compassion for others, St. Thomas’ continues to reflect the charisms of both of these Orders.

While passersby would notice that St. Thomas’ is a visually appealing and well resourced school, with attractive buildings and grounds, our most notable characteristic is our community.  St. Thomas’ is renowned for being friendly, vibrant and welcoming; with supportive and involved parents/caregivers and a commitment to providing a safe, engaging and enjoyable learning environment.

Thank you for visiting our website.  We trust that in learning more about our community you will recognise, as we do, why St. Thomas’ is “a heart for mind and spirit”.

Community News

The final fortnight of the school year is now upon us and everything is drawing to an end. It is in these moments that there is always time for reflection on “what has been” and opportunity to be thankful for the gifts that each moment has brought to us all.

We have many such opportunities over the next 10 days starting with our Summer Celebration concert on Friday evening ..an opportunity to be thankful for our precious children who will delight us with their summer of fun songs.  Please refer to the latest newsletter for details of all end of year celebrations.

Earlier this month, the Christmas Hamper Appeal was launched. The food collected is distributed to those in need in this area – and the need has not lessened in 2014 – so please give generously. Vinnies would like Christmassy food and food to make a meal for Christmas day. Here are some suggestions: tins of fruit/vegetables, biscuits, jellies, long-life custards, anything tinned, bottled or packaged that is festive – think what you would like to eat at Christmas. There will be boxes in the classrooms – hopefully every class can fill a couple or four! Start shopping this week and a token basket will be presented at our last day liturgy on Friday 4th December – 25 sleeps away. Thank you.

Our new look, online newsletter will commence in Term 1 next year. We will be adding a Business Directory to our website in place of the current advertising page. The St Thomas’ Community Business Directory serves to provide a listing of services available in our local community. The purpose of this directory is to:

  • Provide families (and other website visitors) with the contact details of those in our community who provide a particular service,
  • Provide families with an opportunity to advertise their business.

More information and an example advertisement is included in the latest newsletter. 

If you would like to advertise your business, please complete the Business Directory application form (available via the Forms & Downloads section of the website) and return it to the school office. As soon as we receive your authority to advertise, and an email containing the business logo (if applicable), we will arrange for your advertisement to be uploaded onto our website. Please note the Principal must approve all advertisements as appropriate prior to advertisement being accepted.
