“Reaching Beyond”

St Stephen’s is a Catholic Primary School providing a quality Catholic Education for children in Reservoir East.  Our school community is characterised by Gospel values, and the teachings of Jesus Christ are central to our community. Our school motto, “Reaching Beyond” forms the cornerstone of the school and encourages all members of our community to take risks and embrace challenges. 

We aim to inspire our students to want to learn through a diverse and engaging curriculum.  Religious education is an integral part of our daily teaching, along with a short daily meditation in  each class. We have both a Literacy and Maths Block where students are taught essential skills to be  lifelong learners. St Stephen’s also offers Literacy and Maths Intervention programs as well as  Specialist classes in Italian, Science and ICT.

We believe that the social and emotional wellbeing of our children is of the utmost priority. Students have the opportunity to foster leadership through the Student Representative Council. A Student Wellbeing Leader guides the students in fostering and promoting our school values.

At St Stephen’s we value parental engagement. We believe the education of the whole child cannot occur without the support of parents and their involvement in their children’s education. We endeavour to promote and maintain effective interactions between students, parents, parish and the wider community.

St Stephen’s is a school of various cultural backgrounds, religions and occupations, the very diversity of which broadens the outlook of all members of our community and is responsible for the atmosphere of acceptance which characterizes our school.

Dear Lord, 

Please help us to make our school a friendly place.

Where everyone will feel,

That because we love and care about You,

We love and care about them as well.

Help us to smile back when people smile at us,

To give help when people need it,

And most of all,

Help us to love one another as You love us.
