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
Please keep the children involved in the current Sacramental Program in your prayers as they prepare to receive the Sacrament of First Communion at St Patrick’s this term.
Please let the school office know if your child is preparing to receive the Sacraments at another Parish so that we can also include them in our prayers.
The Sacramental Program for Confirmation is beginning with a general information session for parents about sacramental preparation, presented by Carole Danby from Evangelisation Brisbane, 22nd June 2017, 6:30pm or 11th July 2017, 6:30pm, at St Patrick’s Catholic Church Beenleigh.
Parents who intend to enrol their children for Confirmation preparation for 2017 are asked to attend one of these sessions, which will explain the important dates & times in regards to the sacramental program. Please be aware that only Baptised children 8 years and older are able to commence the Sacramental Program this year. For further information please contact the St Patrick’s Parish Office on 3287 2282.
On Wednesday 24 May, we will be joining with over 520,000 children at over 3,500 locations across Australia at 11.00am and reading The Cow Tripped Over the Moon by Tony Wilson and Laura Wood.
