 Principal's Message

For those of you who have chosen St Stephen's for your child/children, the enrolment of your child marks the commencement of a partnership between school and home.  Together, we can work to provide opportunities for your child to experience success at school.

St Stephen’s School has a commitment to fostering the spirituality and faith development of each child within our Catholic community, where all children and their families are accepted and valued for their uniqueness.  We nurture and support our children in understanding God’s unconditional love by providing opportunities for each child to develop a closer relationship with God.  Our school community is centred on living Gospel values within the Catholic faith tradition.

Our educational program is centred on an outcomes-based curriculum which is responsive to the spiritual, social, emotional, physical, academic, creative and cultural developmental needs of your child.  We plan for both self-directed and teacher-directed learning experiences which are meaningful, active, play-based, flexible, integrated, challenging, open-ended and responsive to the needs, interests and potential of each individual.  In accordance with the Brisbane Catholic Education Guidelines, we aim to build “foundations for learning which are life long and life giving”.

We also seek to develop and sustain positive partnerships in our community to enhance learning and living.  We encourage the participation of parents and members of the community in our school program to continue our tradition of parent involvement and collaboration.

This website contains important information about St Stephen’s School.  I encourage you to refer to it regularly. We intend to keep the site regularly updated however should you have something you would like to see added please do not hesitate to contact us.

Yours sincerely,

Phil Manitta
Principal
