About Us

Welcome to the St Joseph’s Primary School community. We aim to foster a love of learning and life through a holistic approach to contemporary education in a supportive Catholic School environment. At St Joseph’s we fully live our motto Truth and Honour. Together staff, students, families and the parish community work tirelessly to make our school a place where all are welcomed and where each individual can realise their full potential. Education at St Joseph’s is centred on the Gospel. Through the teachings of Jesus Christ we aim to nurture the spiritual and faith formation of our students in synergy with academic achievement and development. Saint Mary Mackillop (1842-1909) said “Do your best and God will bless your effort”. Our students are always encouraged to do their best and participate in all aspects of school life. We believe in educating the whole person; socially, spiritually, physically, culturally and academically. We are all unique and have special gifts and talents. St Joseph’s is a community where this is valued. Parents are recognised as the first educators of our students. We encourage parents to participate in the life of the school and this is evident through strong parent partnerships and community collaboration. We have a dedicated staff that provide learning experiences that cater to the need of each individual student. Students are provided with many opportunities to foster their talents. Students are encouraged to participate in an array of learning, sporting, cultural and social justice initiatives and experiences. We endeavour to support student’s emotional well-being and students are encouraged to be active participants in our ever changing world. St Joseph’s is a learning community. Together we will foster future leaders. Many blessings, Melissa Turner Principal
