josephs schoolSt Joseph’s Catholic Primary School

St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School caters for children from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6.

The school was established to respond to the needs of those parents who desired a Catholic education for their children.

We believe it to be a shared responsibility of family, teachers and the wider community to enhance the development of children in terms of spiritual, emotional, social and intellectual growth.

St. Joseph’s School implements co-operative learning strategies throughout the school to develop social skills of sharing, leadership, communicating, building trust and managing conflict.

We offer a rich and stimulating curriculum and make every effort to adapt our programme to include new directions in education.
