Hello and welcome to the St Sebastian's Catholic Primary School website. We are a community dedicated to the provision of high quality, inclusive Catholic education in coeducational classes from Preparatory Year to Year 6.
St Sebastian’s school opened its doors in the beautiful near city suburb of Yeronga in 1937. The Sisters of St Joseph taught the first class of 38 students in 1937 in what is now The Arts Hall. St Sebastian’s is administered by Brisbane Catholic Education [BCE], the educational arm of the Archdiocese of Brisbane. As part of this learning community in diocesan Catholic schools - a community currently comprising 136 schools - St Sebastian's has access to the very significant services provided by Brisbane Catholic Education.
Distinctive curriculum offerings are Information Communication & Learning Technology (ICLT), LOTE (Japanese), Music Program, Health & Physical Education Program, Chess, Choir and Instrumental Music Programs.
If you cannot find what you're looking for on this website, or if you would like any further information about St Sebastian's, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Welcome back to another school term at St Sebastian's. I hope your two week break away from the routines of school life provided a relaxing time to spend with your children, family and friends. Term Three is ten weeks long and will provide many exciting learning experiences for all our children.
Last week was NAIDOC week when celebrations were held across Australia to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Coincidently it occurred in the week when Linda Burney became the first Indigenous woman elected to the House of Representatives.
Throughout week 3 July 24 to 30, all Catholic schools throughout the state of Queensland stop to celebrate who they are and how they open their doors to welcome and value all staff, students, families, parish members and volunteers. Did you know that in 2016, there are 300 Catholic schools in Queensland and that Queensland Catholic schools educate more than 147,000 students or about 1 in 5 of all Queensland students. It is important that we take time to recognise and celebrate the great work that is happening.
