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

We have arrived at the end of half of our school year. It has been a busy, rewarding, challenging, happy time as we look back over all that has been accomplished. It is important that we take a few moments to reflect on the past 10 weeks, to recognise the achievements made and to acknowledge the many and varied learning opportunities that have occurred. Just to name a few, we have enjoyed our Health and Wellness Week; joined the surrounding communities in the ANZAC Day March; engaged with Visual Arts; celebrated First Confirmation; focused on enhancing prayer through meditation; took part in Zone 2 Cross Country, QC Cup Netball and celebrated National Simultaneous Storytime. We have basked in the glow of all our students who took part in our St Thomas’ Cross Country event; participated in the Life Education Program; witnessed Fr Christopher’s installation as Parish Priest of St. Thomas’ Parish; weaved many, many colourful stars; posed for School Photos; Took part in chess tournaments…. There is so much to be thankful for and Term Three looks like another very busy time ahead.

Congratulations to all students who participated in the Eisteddfod. All students who perform are absolute WINNERS!! You have all performed and expressed yourselves creatively in a supportive, competitive and fun environment. You, and your support crew, (parents) are to be congratulated on your achievements.  We are all proud of you and your talents, and celebrate your achievements with you. Keep working hard, and well done!!!

This Friday our representative team will play in the inaugural St Martin’s Invitational Soccer Tournament. Our team has been training very enthusiastically under the guidance of Luca from Brisbane Roar, and ably assisted by Edison Murnane as assistant coach. On Friday Senor Collura will manage/coach the team. Games are at 10:00, 11:20 and 12:20 and maybe 1:20 if we finish in the first 4 teams. Parents are very welcome to come and cheer the team. All players have been given their representative shirt, which will need to be returned, washed, in Term 3. I am very excited for this team of girls and boys as I know they will be great ambassadors for St Thomas.

This is always a very busy term for sport. Events include:

  • Inter-house Athletics Carnival on Friday July 28
  • Zone 2 athletics carnival on September 7th Thursday
  • Gala Day Thursday September 14th (keep that very quiet, we don’t need the drought breakers to hear that news!!)
  • Touch Football competition on Tuesday afternoons
  • Various district trials including Lytton athletics for 10 year and over.


We look forward to admiring some of class and individual work and some creative and skilled pieces of art at our Art Extravaganza on Tuesday, July 11th in conjunction with our Celebration of Learning afternoon. Mark this date in your calendar – a wonderful way to begin next term as we celebrate learnings and achievements and reflect on the First Semester before forging ahead into Term 3.
