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”.

The big day has arrived this week, Friday 14th September and our preps will take part in their own athletics carnival (ably assisted by our wonderful Year 6 leaders). Parents are very welcome to come and join in a morning of activity and excitement.

Students are encouraged to wear their house colour T-Shirt for the day. The morning will start with a house march-past, then sprints, rotational activities and the Finale-some involvement by the parents/relatives. Please bring appropriate shoes for outdoor activity (although there has been occasion to wear heels in certain events!!)

Our Annual Zone 2 athletics carnival will be held on Thursday September 13 (this Thursday) at QSAC. Many of our athletes have been training enthusiastically and intensely. Today we saw the benefits of this hard work with some great running at training. I have been impressed with all of our athletes who have run with heart, thrown with strength, jumped with power and "ball-gamed" with skill and technique. Well done to all and let's bring our "A" game to the front on Thursday.

All athletes need to be at school by 7.10am as the bus leaves promptly at 7.20am to arrive in time for the 800m races at 8.30am. Athletes have received a representative shirt/singlet for the day. Could we please have these returned by Monday laundered. A program of events has been sent out for parents. Parents are very welcome to come and cheer on our team. We are in Division 2 for the carnival. Huge thanks to Mel Rupesinghe who has been our assistant trainer for the season of training. Thanks also to Mr McLaughlan, Mrs Hull and Ms Carrol who have been helping with our field events and ball games.

Last Sunday, a St Thomas’ chess team competed at a competition held at Our Lady of Mt Carmel, Coorparoo. After 7 rounds of challenging chess our students achieved a fantastic result of second place in the novice division. Congratulations to Arden 4W, Hamish 3B, Riley 4W and Tom 1W.
