Welcome to St Joseph’s.

As you read the pages on this website you will learn much about our school’s history, Catholic life, Religious Education, curriculum and pastoral support, as well as find a wealth of general information.

Since 1882, St Joseph’s has had a proud history of Catholic education. Founded by the Sisters of St Joseph, the school is now a systemic, Catholic Education, Diocese of Wollongong primary school under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Wollongong, Bishop Peter Ingham.

St Joseph’s school is grounded in the community of the St Joseph’s parish. Together, we provide an education that opens the hearts of children to the presence of God in this community and in our daily lives. We do this by coming to know Jesus Christ and his teachings and, at St Joseph’s, through the lived examples of Mary the mother of Jesus and St Joseph.

St Joseph’s school life operates around our motto, Truth and Light. Our vision is to ignite a passion for learning within a Catholic ethos. We work to provide a quality curriculum that provides opportunity for every child to excel and considers the diverse learning needs of the individual child. Our many spiritual, academic, sporting, creative and pastoral programs support students to flourish and to develop their full potential spiritually, academically, physically, emotionally and socially.

The children, staff and parents are guided by our school rules of being safe, respectful and responsible in all their actions and words.

I look forward to working with parents and the community over the coming year and invite you to learn more about St Joseph’s through the pages of this website or by contacting the school to speak with us.
