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!
