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
What a great Cross Country event we have just had! We started the day with marvellous attendance and finished with many helpers making light work of the clean up. In between, we had great fun, terrific sportsmanship and awesome community spirit! Congratulations to all those children who participated; it is lots of fun and easy to join in when you are a talented runner, and well done to all those who scored a place in their events. But just as important are those who find these events more difficult, but still compete to the best of their ability; you are an inspiration to us all! A very big thank you to Mrs Farinosi for her organisation of the day, and to the teachers and parents whose efforts in running the day made it such a great success!
HOLY WEEK AND EASTER
As we approach the school holiday break, we reflect upon the events that lead us to Easter. Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday and is the week before we celebrate Easter. During Holy Week, we remember the events in the life of Jesus leading up to his crucifixion on Good Friday. This week, each class will participate in a variety of prayer experiences as they listen and respond to the Gospel stories which tell us of Jesus’ final days. When we return to school after the holidays, we will be celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus at a whole school Easter Liturgy of the Word on Thursday the 20th of April. May you and your families experience the Joy of Easter in the coming weeks.
ANZAC DAY MARCH
Students from Mother Teresa School will participate in the Beenleigh ANZAC Day March on Tuesday the 25th of April. The morning begins with Mass at St Patrick’s Church at 9am, and we assemble for the parade beside the Church at 10am. Further details will be provided after the holidays.
PARISH SACRAMENTAL PROGRAM
An information session for parents for First Holy Communion will be held at St Patrick’s Church Beenleigh, on Monday the 24th of April at 6:30 pm. Year 4 students who have already made their Confirmation in 2016 are able to enrol for First Communion this year. First Communion will be celebrated on the weekend of the 17th and 18th of June and the other program dates will be given to parents at the information night.
The Sacramental Program is parish based, family centred and school supported. If you have further questions, please call St Patrick’s Parish office on 07 3287 2282.
