Mother Teresa School Ormeau opened for students in January 2011, as a P-3 school initially and will grow to a 3 stream school over time. The school motto is "Do small things with great love" and we are seeking to fill a number of fixed term positions across all year levels.

Mother Teresa School opened in January 2011 as an Archdiocesan school serving the Parish of St Patrick's Beenleigh. We now have classes from P-6 and will progress to a three stream school, with an expected population of approximately 600 students. As a new school, we will be incorporating contemporary pedagogies and technologies, whilst still maintaining a strong pastoral environment centred on our catholic faith, traditions and ethos.
