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
This week we commenced our intra school soccer competition, organised and managed by Mr Morris, and so far it has been a spectacular success! I was absent for the first game, but enjoyed a terrific battle between Year 6 and Year 3 today, which the senior class won by the narrowest of margins (2-1). The focus of the games are participation and sportsmanship and both of these qualities have been very evident so far. A big thank you to Mr Morris for his drive and enthusiasm for this initiative.
INDONESIAN DAY CELEBRATIONS
Last week we celebrated Indonesian Day with a range of activities that were very well received by the Children. Ibu Kerrins put a lot of thought and planning into these activities, and it is important that the children have an understanding of the culture, and not just the language of the country they are studying.
COUNTDOWN TO CANONISATION!!
It is now less than two weeks before Mother Teresa becomes a Saint on Sunday the 4th of September. As a school community, we plan to celebrate this wonderful event by gathering for a whole school Liturgy of the Word at 9am on Monday the 5th of September, which is Mother Teresa’s Feast Day. As this also falls during the week of our 5th Anniversary since our Official Blessing and Opening in September 2011, we have decided to also celebrate with a Fun Day for the students and hold our annual Wet Water day on this day. Further details will be sent home next week.
BOOK WEEK AUSTRALIAN EXTRAVAGANZA - TUESDAY AUGUST 30TH
On Tuesday August 30th, the children will come to school dressed up in early Australian Settler’s clothes or as something that is Australian or a famous Australian and take part in a whole day of planned Australian themed activities. Children are to be dressed in sun safe, comfortable clothing (be able to move around freely) with covered shoes and either have their school hat or a full brimmed hat.
