Our Story

History

The Sisters of St Joseph founded St Joseph's Primary in 1963 and were a presence in the school until 1981. The first lay Principal was appointed in 1982.

St Joseph’s school serves the Catholic parish of Kingswood, which was established in 1970. The school supports the parish in its mission of evangelisation.


School Description

St Joseph's, located in Kingswood, presently has 270 students. The school has undergone extensive refurbishment of both buildings and grounds. Learning spaces are spacious and collaborative, providing facilities for both social and personal learning activities. Our grounds are well-maintained and students are involved in the greening of outdoor spaces.


Educational Program

A professional and dedicated staff supports students at St Joseph’s to learn without limits. Learning spaces are comfortable and contemporary. Technology is used to engage students with their learning and provide access to the world beyond the local community. Students have access to interactive whiteboards, iPods, Laptops and an increasing collection of smaller hand-held devices such as the DS, to develop skills and enjoy learning.

Learning programs are based on the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Key Learning Areas. Teachers work cooperatively to provide a range of learning experiences for groups and individuals, meeting the needs of each learner. Both learning support and enrichment is provided within the school’s curriculum.

Students and their needs are at the heart of all we do at St Joseph’s. Learning without limits promotes lifelong learning.


Extracurricular & Special Programs

St Joseph's prides itself on the variety of extracurricular programs and opportunities offered to our students.

These include:
  • sporting teams that represent the school in a variety of competitions, such as basketball, netball, touch football, soccer, athletics, swimming and cross-country
  • the Mathematics Investigation Challenge each year with great success

Community/Parent Involvement

We believe parents to be vital contributors in the development of our students' faith and so all are encouraged to participate in the faith life of our community.

Our Parent Association promotes our shared goals through ‘on the ground’ support such as assisting in classrooms, excursions, sports activities and fundraising. Parents are invited to participate in school assemblies and celebrations and in the school’s decision-making process through surveys and meetings.

Parents work collaboratively with staff to provide a vibrant learning environment for all students.
