Celebrating Catholic Education


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

ANZAC DayHappy Easter to all and a very warm welcome back to St. Thomas' School as we commence term two. The term that stands before us is set to be another busy one with many events, planned activities and curriculum undertakings already on the calendar. Be sure to be part of, and support, many of these upcoming happenings as together we strive to be a vibrant, relevant and supportive Catholic community here at St. Thomas'. One of the major events on our school calendar this term is our St. Thomas' fete on Sunday, 15th June.

Back to back with the great celebration of Easter we find ourselves this year marking ANZAC Day. A time to pray for peace in every corner of our world and a time to pray for those who have given so much of themselves in protecting the freedom of others. Our legacy is to live and model to our young people the virtues of self-sacrifice, resourcefulness, courage, determination, compassion and co-operation in our day to day toils.

God, source of all, we give thanks for the freedom and opportunity of choice that we have available to us in Australia, we express our gratitude and thanks to those who have sacrificed much, if not all, on our behalf. We pray for peace, freedom and justice for all. Amen.

God's blessings Lorraine Walker

Gala Day This day has been rescheduled from Term l when the day was rained out. All plans will go ahead as per the original schedule. The students know their teams and supervisor. We are hoping that the parents who volunteered to assist last term are able to assist this Thursday 24th April. If not, please let the office know as soon as possible to allow for other arrangements to be made.

Students will be transported to and from the venues - Wembley Park for Korfball and Bottomley Park for touch football - by buses. Students need to wear school sports uniforms, bring their hats, sunscreen, water bottles lunch or money for a drink and sausage sizzle (a fundraiser for the Seton College students participating in the Kokoda 96km charity walk in July).
