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

This year as part of the Camp Hill community, St Thomas' School students are invited to attend the ANZAC Day march from the Camp Hill Hotel to Camp Hill State School on Saturday, 25th April. Students are to be in full school uniform and be at the hotel by 7:45am – the march commences at 8am.

There will be designated areas in the school grounds for both parents and students at the commemorative service to be held at the conclusion of the march at 8:30am. If you wish your child to participate, please complete the permission slip on page 10 of the newsletter.

As you may know, the Mother's Day Stall is on Friday, 8th May 2015. Whilst this sounds a long way off it is only a few weeks into term 2. The stall is always great fun and the children enjoy buying something special on the day for their mum.

To ensure the success of this stall, we are asking for donations in the form of a present for the stall. It can either be a "standalone" item or things we can package up with other items. For all those early birds, please feel free to drop off any goodies to the school office prior to the school holidays or alternatively please return donations on the first week of term. We thank you for your assistance.

It is that time of year again when the new Entertainment Book is released. There are hundreds of vouchers available with genuine savings at all your favourite restaurants, attractions, shopping and travel providers. This year we are not sending the book home with every family in order to give everyone the opportunity to choose a new convenient electronic version in the form of an app on your phone to make the most of all there is to offer. For those who would like to still purchase the book version, this is definitely still available and after you order it on-line your book will be sent via your child from school.

This is a very worthwhile fundraiser for the school where not only does a significant portion of the cost of the books/app go directly to the school but you receive something that is truly worth far more than the money it cost! All of the specific details on how to purchase as well as examples of some of the savings to be made are in a flier which has come home with your child. We look forward to your support for our school.

Celebrating Catholic Education P&F NEWS
