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!

WORLD TEACHERS’ DAY
On Friday 28th October we celebrate World Teachers’ Day, a day to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of all of our teachers. Please take some time this week to say ‘Thank you’ to your child’s teacher for the contribution they make to our school community and to the growth and development of the students. Our teachers go above and beyond their role expectations to provide high quality teaching and learning experiences that cater to each learner to develop the whole person at Mother Teresa School. We are extremely blessed to have such wonderful, enthusiastic and professional staff. THANK YOU!!!
Preparations have begun for our annual Christmas Tableau. Please save the date Friday the 11th of November. The Christmas Tableau is a lovely end of year community celebration where families are invited to arrive in the evening and BYO picnic and enjoy a retelling of the Christmas Story as the sun sets. Each class is involved in either acting, narrating, dancing or singing so we depend on the support of families to make the evening a success. More details to come.
STUDENT LEADERS FOR 2017
During the week I spent some time with the year 5 children, to outline our expectations of leadership, especially as they will be our senior class in 2017. There are three key attributes of student leaders that I outlined to the children, and will be the basis of two leadership sessions per week, for the remainder of the year. They are: Listen, Include, Respect.
I informed the children that all Year six children will be wearing a ‘school leaders’ badge, but also that in 2017, we will be having our first ever elections for House Captains, and we will be spending the rest of this year reflecting on our own leadership, and that of others, with the aim of becoming better at listening, being inclusive and showing respect. I want our leaders to be living examples of these qualities for the rest of the school community.
