A Message from the Principal
..Welcome to St. Joseph’s Primary School and our school website. We are very excited about presenting our school on the web and sharing with you news and information about our school, students, activities, and staff. Throughout the year we will be updating information on school programs, activities, and events. Enjoy your visit.
St. Joseph’s Primary School is a co-educational, Catholic, primary school which strives to provide a well-ordered, caring, happy and secure atmosphere where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of the pupils are identified and addressed.
While St. Joseph’s Primary School is a school with a Catholic ethos, it also has due recognition for all other religions.
We will strive to promote, both individually and collectively, the professional and personal development of all staff.
We aim to foster a strong sense of school community, involving children, parents, teachers and the wider community. We will encourage the involvement of parents through home/school contacts and through parent / teacher meetings.
We will endeavour to enhance the self-esteem of everyone in the school community, to imbue in the pupils respect for people and property and to encourage in them the idea of being responsible caring citizens.
St. Joseph’s Primary School will promote gender equity amongst the teachers and pupils.
