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”.

SAVE THE DATE - ST THOMAS' YOUTH MASS
2018 is the Year of Youth for the Catholic Church in Australia. St Thomas’ will be celebrating a Youth Mass at 5.30pm on Saturday 8th September. All are welcome and we especially encourage all of our youth, high school age and above, to come along. More details to follow.
This year’s annual school disco is being held on the 6th of September (Foundation Day) in the Noble Tree Centre. Unlike our previous discos where only the years 4s, 5s and 6s were invited to attend, this year we will be inviting the whole school. The 2018 disco will be held during the school day in two sessions, one for the little monsters and one for the big monsters. Buy your tickets for $5 from Week 5 up until the disco. There will be some other fun treats to be had on the day of the disco as well. Lolly bags will be $1 each and only sold on the day. We will be providing chips and an icy pole for every ticket holder. Some other fun events will take place at the disco, including a Lucky Door Prize. Our theme this year is Haunted House. Come dressed in casual clothes appropriate for Church. You can bring a scary mask, hat or basic costume that you will be able to put over some casual clothes after the mass. As always, please make sure you are sun safe (no spaghetti straps, short shorts, mid drifts and wear closed in shoes). We hope you are just as excited as we are!
