In All Things May God Be Glorified

Our Location


St Joseph's Primary School is located in Kerang on the Murray Valley Highway half way between Echuca and Swan Hill (Pop. 4100).  Situated on the Loddon River, Kerang is the service centre for the surrounding irrigated agricultural district. The Kerang Wetlands system, a scattering of more than 50 lakes and marshes, supports hundreds of species of water birds and is arguably the world's largest breeding grounds for ibis.  The town boasts excellent facilities and services. The nearby Murray River and lakes provide ample opportunities for sport and recreation and the region is a popular place for visitors during summer and Easter.    

For further information about Kerang and the Gannawarra Shire, visit http://www.gannawarra.vic.gov.au.

The St. Patrick’s parish is a vibrant faith community who support the school positively. The school/parish community comes together annually to celebrate the school/parish feast days and this is an event that is growing in popularity.

St. Joseph's is a part of Catholic Education Snadhurst that stretches from Kerang to Corryong along the Murray and from Bendigo to Euroa in the South of the Diocese.   More information about Catholic Education Sandhurst can be found at http://www.ceosand.catholic.edu.au/
