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!
Mr Peter Kerrins
Even though there is only a little over two weeks of school left, there is a lot to squeeze in, so please check our calendar dates so you don’t miss out. In particular, could I draw your attention to:
~ Our amazing Tableau on Friday night
~ Our Year 6 graduation liturgy which will be held on Thursday November 30.
~ Our parent helper breakfast is Wednesday 22nd November
~ Our annual ‘Wet Day’ which we will hold on the morning of the 29th (weather permitting)
We look forward to our Christmas Tableau on Friday 17th November. Please BYO picnic rug and food. Families are asked to gather on the oval at 5:30pm. The choir will perform prior to the start of the retelling of the Christmas Story as the sun begins to set.
PARENT HELPERS THANK YOU BREAKFAST
Parents who have helped around the school and in classrooms this year are invited to a special breakfast before school at 7:30am on Wednesday the 22nd of November in the staff room. Our teachers would like to extend this invitation to show our appreciation for the valuable contribution that our parent helpers have made during the 2017 school year. Our school enjoys a rich partnership with our parent community and many of the experiences that are provided for our students are as a result of our volunteers’ support. We are grateful for our active P & F, School Board, Tuckshop volunteers, School banking parents as well as all of the extra help in classrooms, working bees, excursions and sports carnivals.
FAREWELL CEREMONY INVITATION
Our school community will farewell our Year 6 student leaders at their farewell ceremony on Thursday the 30th of November at 9am in the undercover area. We extend a special invitation to the parents of our year 6 students to join us for this Liturgy of the Word which will be led by the Year 6 students.
