About St Philomena School
St Philomena School bids you welcome!
St Philomena’s is an independent traditional Catholic School in Brisbane, Queensland run by the Fathers of the Society of St Pius X. Our School is unique in that, from the earliest age, we seek to give a classical education to our children. Of all educational methods, the classical curriculum seems to be the most tried and true. It includes learning Latin, classical studies in Ancient Greek and Roman history, and the study of Logic. Only literary classics are studied in class, and French is also taught in the upper grades. Our academic results are reflected by the myschool website, rating St Philomena School the best in the local area, and one of the best schools in Queensland.
Sine Deo Nihil – Without God there is Nothing.
To provide excellence in Catholic and classical education, for the love of God and learning.
At St Philomena School, we value education for education’s sake, and not merely as a means to something else. A true education includes so much more than mere knowledge and includes the formation of a child’s character.
That is why we have high standards in behaviour, manners and courtesy. In many ways, our education philosophy might be termed “old school”, yet at the same time modern methods and technologies are employed to the degree that they are useful. Nevertheless, St Philomena’s is not about technologies and innovative methods; it is about the children. It is about the development of their individual personalities in such a way as to make full use of the various gifts God has given them, and to share these talents later for the betterment of society.
