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.

Celebrating Catholic Education in QueenslandThank 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”.

WALKING IN THEIR SHOES
Our Caritas school fundraiser for Lent is linked with the School Cross Country this Friday, 4th April. Don't we all wish for a life filled with certainty; a life free from the burden of poverty with equal access to food, water, education, healthcare and shelter; a life of dignity and a life of peace within our hearts and minds?

Students are asked to bring a gold coin donation on Friday to raise money to help communities become more sustainable. In doing so, we will be honouring the thousands of women and children around the world who, every day, need to cover many kilometres to fetch water, obtain food, get to school or market, or simply to survive. On this day, by our actions we stand in solidarity with these people.

This promises to add to what is usually a great day. While encouraging our own health and vitality, we will also be contributing in a real way to the life of communities around the world. "..I have come that they may have life and live it to the full." John 10:10
