A place of optimism, excitement, excellence and challenge.
Come and share in something special!


Your choice of schooling is one of the most important decisions made on behalf of your child. I trust that choosing this school will prove to be a worthwhile and enjoyable experience for your family and especially your child. ​

We at St Joseph's have  been supporting students and their families since 1962 when the school was established by the Sisters of St Joseph. It is a co-educational Catholic primary school providing excellence in education from the Early Years to Year 7. We offer a nurturing environment which encourages happy and successful learning. Our programs provide a framework which will equip each student with the skills to enjoy a lifetime of discovery and learning.

The staff here at St. Joseph’s facilitate a learning environment to suit all students through their absolute professionalism, dedication and passion. We work together as a team to make sure the needs of every student are catered for through multi-faceted learning experiences.
