A very well-resourced school library, well appointed, air conditioned classrooms, along with an impressive level of school wide technological resources, are major features of the quality school wide facilities to support teaching and learning programs, available at St Joseph’s Primary School. A multi purpose hall, along with a large, well-maintained playing area are yet further examples of the abundant learning and play environments available to students at this school. Numerous sports orientated courts and covered outdoor play assembly areas are also major school assets.
At St Joseph’s Primary School the curriculum encompasses Religious Education and the six key learning areas mandated by the New South Wales Board of Studies. A program of extra-curricula activities support student learning in the areas of Music (Band/Choir), Sport, debating, Public Speaking and enrichment activities.
St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School is an experience in the body of Christ, whereby parents, parish and community nurture Gospel values and life skills, enabling the students to achieve their full potential. They fully embraces the school motto of ‘Learning together with Care and Respect’.
