Welcome to St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School
At St. Joseph’s, we are a school of love and hope. We believe that a Catholic education develops the full potential of all young people, leading to their life-long activities being guided by the Spirit and presence of Christ, in the service of God and of others.
It is a unique journey through education as it puts all learning and teaching in a Catholic moral context ultimately both challenging and supporting young people to develop in mind, body and spirit. The role of a Catholic school is to help everyone in the school community to discover the true value and dignity of each and every human being.
The school focuses on the education of the whole child. It is centred on Gospel values and reflecting on the teaching of the Catholic Church. Hence, the formation of each person is regarded as being as important as the information which is transmitted through the teaching offered.
Parents are the first educators of their child in faith and a strong home-school link is fundamental in supporting the school in its mission . Together, we provide support for the faith community, helping to form a Christian conscience, and in addressing the increasingly secular influences of popular culture.
Easter Garden Project 2019
Over the Easter holidays, lots of our families were busy getting crafty and creative. They were set the challenge of creating an Easter garden in order to help learn about and understand the story of Easter, the most special time in our church year. Take a look at their fabulous creations!
Lenten Service 2019
Fr. Pat came into school for our Lenten Service. We prayed to God that he would help us to try even harder to live like Jesus during this special time and we sang some beautiful hymns. Before it ended, we took turns in our classes to place our Lenten Promises at the foot of the cross. It was a beautiful service. Thank you Fr. Pat!
