MEET OUR PRINCIPAL

CHRIS MITCHELL

Dear Parents,

I feel proud to be the Principal of St Joseph’s Primary School, as I believe we are a wonderful school community that nurtures and develops each of its members. Here at St Joseph’s we offer a balanced curriculum which is focused on the academic, social, emotional, physical, spiritual and creative development of each child in an environment faithful to our Catholic tradition.

We have a hard working and dedicated staff who give generously of their time and expertise to ensure that children receive the best opportunities possible. Catholic Schools see parents as the children’s first and most important teachers in life. At St Joseph’s we share the responsibilities of education in partnership with parents. We are fortunate to have supportive parents who contribute greatly to the life and sense of community at our school.

Growth in self-esteem and responsibility for oneself and their own environment is nurtured in partnership with all school community members. We recognise the crucial link between the home, the school and the parish in working together in the interest of each and every child who attends our school.

Families making the choice of education for their child are encouraged to contact the school.
