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......

Well, another first has come and gone in a really successful way; the inaugural 'Big Adventure' obstacle challenge. It was a great day, and I am sure if you look on the P&F facebook page you will see many images of people having such a great time. Many thanks go to the driving force behind this day, Deanne, and her virtual army of helpers who made the day so safe for all, and such a great community experience! As you can see from the picture; the day catered for ALL ages!!

Our preps were so excited for their excursion to the Currumbin Bird Sanctuary today! I have just received a message from Mrs reeves that they had a great day. See also a photo of the Preps watering our newly planted trees.

After your enrolment application is lodged, you will be invited to attend an enrolment interview with the Principal. Offers of places will occur after these interviews.  Please note : Siblings of current students are required to complete the above process.

Our next P and F meeting will be on Tuesday 4th of October at 7.00pm in the school library. This meeting will formalise our fundraising calendar for 2017.
