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”.

This year the Year 6 Leadership Disco will be held on Friday, 23rd October. The Year Six Leaders would like to invite all students from Year 4, 5 and 6. This year the theme will be 'Rano Antoko Disco (Water Party Disco) for Madagascar as we are donating all the money we raise from the tickets to two amazing charities: The Catholic Mission (Sock it to Poverty in Madagascar campaign) and Orange Sky Laundry.

Orange Sky Laundry'Rano Antoko Disco for Madagascar' will be held in The Noble Tree Centre from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. The ticket cost is $8.50 and the Year 6 Leaders will be selling the tickets on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays starting on Friday, 9th October. Students must have a ticket or they cannot enter the disco. The ticket price includes a small snack and a drink. We encourage all students to dress according to the theme, 'Rano Antoko Disco for Madagascar'.

We hope everyone will be able to make it to the Rano Antoko Disco for Madagascar as we are sure everyone will have a good time. Hilary, Year Six Leader

The one day of the term that was not the usual brilliant Queensland sunshine happened to be on our Gala Day. Consequently we were not able to conduct the day with the poor weather. Thank you to the parents who had volunteered to assist. We have postponed the Gala Day to Thursday October 29th at the same venues and playing the same sports, European handball and touch football. If you are able to assist please let the class teacher know as soon as possible to allow for the re-organisation of the day.

This year we are entering two teams into the competition, a mixed team of 6 boys and 6 girls, and a girls' only team of 12 girls.  This will be a very exciting event for these school representatives. We will train for a number of Sunday afternoons and also at lunch-times for the next month in preparation for the carnival on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th of November. Sunday training will commence on Sunday October 18th (as per the letter). We will also train on one lunchtime for each team with the girls' team training on Tuesday lunch-time and the mixed team training on Thursday lunch-time.

Welcome to term 4! Before you know it Christmas will be upon us and another year goneā€¦ But there are still a few things we need to sort for next year - namely a new P&F committee and a fete committee. If we don't get a fete committee in place before the end of the term there will be no fete next year. So if you can help please let us know.

Thanks to everyone for contributing their Woolworths Earn and Learn stickers. We earned a grand total of 39,660 points - the school now has the opportunity to order school equipment that will be delivered in Term 1, 2016.

If you have any questions about the P&F, please contact me, Rich, on 0414 676 685 or Allannah on 0416 263 640, and we will endeavour to answer them for you. We can also be contacted via stthomaspandf@gmail.com
