Welcome to St Joseph’s Primary School
Grow in truth and love
St Joseph’s School is blessed with talented teachers, a supportive parent community and co-operative children with a desire to learn. St Joseph’s is highly respected in the local community for its outstanding academic achievements and pastoral care initiatives. The school serves the local communities of Woodburn, Evans Head, Broadwater, Riley’s Hill, Ellangowan and Bungawalbyn.
St Joseph’s School Woodburn, recognises the parents as the first educators of their child.
The school is a sign of Faith and sponsors the Faith development of the children. We believe that a parent/school partnership is essential for effective school education. Positive parental attitude towards school is a must if this partnership is to develop.
Catholic Education strives for excellence in the academic areas and whilst we give due emphasis to the acquisition of knowledge and skills, we are equally concerned with the development of Christian attitudes and values.
We particularly wish to encourage in each child self-acceptance, respect for themselves and others, and the feeling that each child is an important member of the school community.
The school, assisted by Priest, staff and parents, sees the end product of Christian education as the integration of the child spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually.

Why Choose St Joseph’s ?
Schools play a key role in developing virtues and a sense of civic responsibility.Tendency to view children in terms of their ability in exams rather than as people risks “polluting” their education.
There is an increasing national and international commitment to the understanding of how pastoral care contributes to students’ social, emotional, physical, moral and spiritual wellbeing. A key priority is the importance of achieving a shared vision of physical and emotional safety and wellbeing for all students.
We recognise, celebrate and reward teaching practices in our school that foster a learning culture. By sharing these excellent practices we create professional development opportunities and promote the best in education.
