Welcome to the website of Mother Teresa School
Ours is a new school built by Brisbane Catholic Education in response to the need for a Catholic Primary School in the rapidly growing Ormeau area. We are situated on Eggersdorf Road, which is the main road leading off exit 45 on the M1 Motorway.
Our school offers classes from Prep to Year 6. The plan for Mother Teresa’s is to become a three stream school, with an eventual population of between 500 and 600 students.
Why Mother Teresa?
Our school is named in honour of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, whose life was dedicated to the betterment of others. Mother Teresa often said that a worthwhile life is one that is lived in the service of others. It is this notion of servant leadership that we hope to instil in our children. Service to others in the modern world involves key elements such as:
- Conservation of our environment for future generations.
- Using skills to build communities by building positive relationships.
- Developing high academic standards to maximise our talents for the good of the community
- Developing and sharing recreational, sporting and artistic skills to enrich our world.
As a member of the Archdiocese of Brisbane Catholic Education, we take up the challenge of education to Teach, Challenge and Transform.
We encourage any and all parents who are interested in learning more about our wonderful school and the fantastic opportunities it can offer your family, to contact us and come in for a tour of the school, so you can see these things for yourself!

CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK 24TH TO 30TH JULY
Catholic Education Week will be celebrated across Queensland from 24 - 30 July this year.
This annual event is held to promote the special ethos of Catholic schools and to highlight the great things that take place in Catholic schools every day. The theme for this year’s celebrations is: Opening Doors in the Year of Mercy.
Catholic education strives to make a difference in the lives of those in our schools and in the wider community by challenging young people to live out the message of Jesus and to reach their full potential as compassionate, contributing, life-giving members of society.
Our school is planning a number of activities during the week and we hope you are able to join in the celebrations with us:
Sunday the 24th July St Patrick’s Parish Catholic Education Week Mass 9am
Tuesday the 26th July Years 3-6 Mass at Trinity College 9:30am
Thursday the 28th July P-2 Liturgy of the Word with St Joseph’s students 9:30am (hosted by Year 2)
BOOK WEEK AUSTRALIAN EXTRAVAGANZA - TUESDAY AUGUST 30TH
On that date the children will come to school dressed up in early Australian Settler’s clothes or as something that is Australian or a famous Australian and take part in a whole day of planned Australian themed activities. Children are to be dressed in sun safe, comfortable clothing (be able to move around freely) with covered shoes and either have their school hat or a full brimmed hat.
