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!

WHAT A BUSY AND SUCCESSFUL WEEK....
What a great night we had at the Trivia Night on Friday! It was terrific to see so many people in attendance and having such a great time. It is really nice to have the opportunity to mix with parents as ‘people’ and not in their role as parents. The night proved to be a great fundraiser as well, and we should be able to move on to the completion of our outdoor shade area.
This night wasn’t successful by accident; P&F President Paul (and Trudi), with great help from Kate (and Dain) and an army of other helpers, including Quizmaster Alicia, did a huge amount of preparation leading up to and on the night to ensure a top notch event was held. Other notable mentions include Matt, who won the night’s prestige event for the second year in a row, “Father Mo” who didn’t win the prestige event, but lost it in spectacular fashion, as well as some rather un-spectacular egg rolling! Congratulations to the “Thinking Caps” who won not only the quiz, but the team self portrait competition!
Thank you to all those who were able to attend our Biggest Morning Tea’ last week. Having both parents die from cancer, this is an issue very close to my heart, and I live in hope that the funds and awareness we raised may lead to a cure for cancer. A big thank you to Mrs Cook for again being the driving force behind this day, and to all our wonderful staff who donated much of the tasty goods we were able to share.
We have a number of important events coming up, including class excursions, so please make sure you check our calendar of events!
