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

Last Friday evening's P and F Welcome BBQ was a wonderful opportunity to come together socially for the first time in 2019! The evening was very well attended and provided our students with time to 'let their hair down' and enjoy each other's company out of school hours. A special thank-you to everyone who assisted either before, or on the evening. 'Many hands make light work', and it was clearly evident that the load was indeed shared, with many parents volunteering their time. A special thank-you to the members of the P and F who ensured the evening was yet another success!

A reminder that our first P and F Meeting for the year is scheduled for this coming Monday 25th February. The meeting will be held in the library and will commence at 7pm. All parents are automatically members of the P and F and your involvement in meetings is both welcome and appreciated!

A special thank-you to everyone for 'clothing yourselves in compassion' contributing generously to last Thursday's 'Show the love for Townsville' fundraiser. We raised $783.75! Our school's donation will now be added to the donations of other BCE schools to help make a difference where it is needed up north.
