Where every child matters and every moment counts
A warm welcome
Thank you for taking the time to have a look at our website. St Joseph’s is a small inner-city Catholic Primary School that provides a quality education where the student is at the heart of all we do.
I am privileged to be a part of this community of learners and lead such a dedicated and dynamic group of teachers. At St Joseph’s we acknowledge parents as the primary educators of their children and we, as teachers, journey with you in nurturing their spiritual, academic, social and emotional growth.
At St Joseph’s we embrace genuine partnerships between families, and we work together to empower and challenge your children to become passionate learners, who actively and fervently inquire into the ever-changing world around them.
As you peruse our website I hope you develop a sense of the strong community that binds us together at St Joseph’s. When you become a part of the St Joseph’s community you are welcomed with warmth and a genuine sense of belonging.
We believe the social and emotional wellbeing of our children is paramount, in order that they may develop a strong sense of self-belief and set personal high expectations. Our small class sized enable us to truly target our learning and teaching at the individual needs of each child.
At St Joseph’s our students actively participate in their personal learning journey. Our students collaborate with their teachers to set personal goals to grow as a learner and move along the learning continuum. Our staff work together with the children to determine their unique strengths, interests and passions, and create a learning environment that is challenging, stimulating and engaging for all. Our approach to teaching and learning is to build a culture of excellence in which everyone succeeds as a learner.
We are proud of our reputation as a strong supportive community. We are committed to building and maintaining authentic and relationships that promote a sense of belonging and connectedness.
We are a school where every child matters,
and every moment counts.
We understand that choosing the right school for your child is a big decision. That’s why we invite you to come and see the St Joseph’s Northcote difference.
We would welcome the opportunity to show you around our school – we offer personal tours at a time that suits your family. Meeting our students and our staff, and seeing how they engage in learning and teaching is a great way of determining if our school will be the right school for you, and your child.
