Our Skilled Educators

We are proud of the highly professional, creative and dedicated teachers we have at St Joseph's. Our teachers are driven by a desire to help every child succeed and they genuinely care about every student in their class.

Our educators keep students at the centre of our learning agenda and their needs are what direct our planning. Professional learning is a priority at St Joseph’s, with our teachers encouraged to continue their own learning to ensure that we offer relevant and engaging learning experiences of the highest quality.

To support this approach, St Joseph’s employs Instructional Leaders to work with teachers and students, to ensure the best possible outcomes for students. Instructional Leaders play an important role at St Joseph’s in improving teaching and learning opportunities for our students. They do this by:

  • modelling expert practice
  • team teaching
  • observing or working with a targeted group of students within the classroom
  • analysing data
  • evaluating teaching practice
  • examining student work
  • running Case Management meetings
  • participating in regular Learning Walks to observe and improve teaching practice
  • collaborating with teachers to improve student academic success
  • deliver focused professional learning to staff
  • collaborate with system leadership.

As part of the school’s commitment to educating the whole person, students have access to specialist dance, sport and music teachers - students in Stage 2 have the opportunity to learn a string instrument with weekly lessons.

If you would like to contact a member of staff please feel free to contact the school by phone on (02) 4726 4200 weekdays between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm or use our contact form.
