Dear Parents and Guardians,
On behalf of St Joseph’s Parish School Weipa, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to our vibrant, contemporary school. It is a great privilege to lead and be part of such a warm and welcoming community where every student is a unique individual, valued for his or her identity, gifts and talents.
At St Joseph’s we recognise that choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent. We take seriously our responsibility as educators and the trust placed in us by parents and carers to guide their children on a learning journey that is fulfilling, nurturing and challenging. We pride ourselves on truly knowing our students and families.
Our inclusive community values authentic parent engagement and embraces diversity. We welcome students of all backgrounds, cultures and religions to join us. At St Joseph’s a quality Catholic Education is affordable and accessible for every family.
As Principal of St Joseph’s primary school, I am proud of the programs that we deliver at our school. Learning is an exciting, life-long endeavour; our staff and I are proud to have both the opportunity and responsibility to ensure a solid foundation for your child as they begin or continue their educational journey.
Together as a team, we have one goal – joy-filled learning, where our students strive to achieve high expectations in a safe, happy environment fostering humility, care and respect.
We recognise we educate the leaders of our tomorrow. Our school offers outstanding facilities, high quality educators and being a progressive school, the latest technologies and teaching methods are used to deliver a dynamic and differentiated education. We stimulate curiosity, creativity, innovation, imagination, investigation, problem solving, making connections, collaboration and self-reflection.
I encourage you to explore our website and see how we provide a quality Catholic education in a modern environment, focused on equipping your child for an ever-changing world.
At Joseph’s your child will thrive, be challenged, supported and encouraged to be more.
