VISION - Our students will be confident, connected, actively involved lifelong learners.
St. Joseph’s is an integrated Catholic Primary School providing for students from New Entrants to Year 8. We have a maximum roll of 229.
St. Joseph’s is a school in which the whole School community, through the general school programme, its religious instructions and observances, exercises the right to live and teach the values of Jesus Christ. These values are as expressed in the Scriptures, in the practices, worship and doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church, as determined from time to time by the Roman Catholic Bishop of the Diocese.
The Religious Education programme is an integral part of the Curriculum. The principles, truth and ethics of that programme permeate whatever the School does.
The focal point of the whole school is Christ.
The pupils are taught that God is creator, that Jesus Christ is God made man and that their ultimate goal is heaven.
