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”.

ANZAC DAY
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 Tuesday, 25th April. Students are to be in full school uniform and be at the hotel by 7:30am – the march commences at 8am and the ceremony at 8:30. A number of staff and students marched last year with the school banner. We would love to see a large group representing our school in this occasion of national significance – this is usually the case with our wonderful St Thomas’ school community – so we are just providing you with early notification of our participation.

TUCKSHOP SURVEY

P&F NEWS
Mother’s Day Stall
Every year volunteers organise a Mother's Day stall in May and a Father's Day stall in September. This fun initiative allows the students to shop for a gift for their parents and grandparents at school.  The P&F Committee is preparing for the Mother’s Day Stall to be held on Friday 12 May 2017. To make this stall a success, suitable gift donations are needed so participating students can make their own gift choice for $5 or $10. The students gain excitement and a feeling of independence through these stalls and it helps the P&F to raise important funds for the school.

If you have any questions please feel free to drop a line to stthomaspandf@gmail.com.
