Brisbane Catholic Education


Wednesdays 8am to 9am



Welcome to the website of Mother Teresa School

Click here to view our Vision and Mission StatementOurs 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!

Community News......

Catholic Education Week will be celebrated across Queensland from 23 - 29 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: Sharing the Journey.

This week we were treated by a visit from Andrew Chinn, religious singer/songwriter. Andrew’s songs have been part of our school’s journey as they are regularly used in class and prayer celebrations. Our students joined with children from St Joseph’s school for an entertaining concert on Monday afternoon. On Wednesday, our Years 4-6 students celebrated with students from Trinity College and St Joseph’s school with Mass and rotational activities.

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. During Catholic Education Week 2017, Catholic education communities across Queensland are invited to celebrate how they are sharing the journey. There are 302 Catholic schools in Queensland that educate around 146,000 students and employ more than 18,500 teachers and staff, and most will celebrate Catholic Education Week in some way.
