What We Offer
Give your child the best opportunity to develop academically, spiritually and socially
Pursuing excellence in every endeavour
The community of St Joseph’s Primary School follow in the footsteps of the Mercy tradition.
We set high expectations for our students and we encourage them to accept responsibility for their learning and behaviour. We aim to develop students who are confident, independently minded and well-placed to contribute to a just society, as well as having a deep understanding of, and commitment to, the Catholic faith.
A 21st Century learning environment
St Joseph's is a place where curiosity, imagination and love of learning are treasured. Our school is focused on developing strengths that students need now and in the future - communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking. Our learning spaces are designed for up-to-date learning. There are places for students to work together and for working independently. There are also places where the latest state-of-the-art technology and well-designed facilities support your child’s learning.
St Joseph's is a community of learners, thinkers and achievers, and a safe place for your child to belong, make friends and be cared for.
