Welcome to our website.....

St Joseph's School Chinchilla began as a Parish School staffed by the sisters of St Joseph in 1923. The Sisters of St Joseph continued to serve the Parish and children of Chinchilla until 1992 when the school was handed over to a lay Principal and an all lay staff for the first time. These teachers were commissioned to continue the job of service to the Catholic Community of Chinchilla by providing sound Catholic Education.

Our philosophy is to allow for the full personal development of our students. This development embraces their physical, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual nature. Each child is respected as an individual and every effort is made to cater for the individual needs of each student.

Within the education process at St Joseph's, is the vital place of Christian faith. It is our task to nourish and support the children's own faith journey through the experiences they encounter at school. We teach the Gospel values from the Catholic Tradition, always remaining sensitive to children from other faith families. The total educational program will be directed towards equipping our students with the necessary skills and self-appreciation, so that they can take a positive and fulfilling place in modern society.

ANZAC Day 25th AprilOn Friday 21st April at 11:00am we will come together as a school community to remember the brave men and women that have made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure the freedom and safety that we so often take for granted here in Australia. We are also very fortunate to have Mr Ron Childs from the R.S.L Sub-branch joining us to share his experiences. Parents and friends are invited to join us for this special occasion.On Tuesday the 25th our students have again been kindly invited to march in the town ANZAC parade. This is a great privilege and I hope to see a large number of students take up the call. Students wishing to march are to assemble outside St Vinnies on Heeney Street at 10.30am for a 10.45am start. Students are to wear their full school uniform including school hat. Students not wearing the full uniform will be unable to march. Our School Captains and myself have been kindly invited to attend the ANZAC Day service being held at the Chinchilla State High School on Monday 24th April at 9.00am. Students will be driven up and back by school car.

PARISH SACRAMENTAL PROGRAMME – First Eucharist and Confirmation
The Parish Sacramental Programme to prepare children to receive the sacraments of First Eucharist and Confirmation begins next term. Father Gonzo will lead the sacramental team, parents and children over the six weeks of preparation. The first session will be Wednesday 26th April at 5.30 – 6.00p.m., parents and children meeting at the St Joseph’s school library. The following weekly sessions will also be 5.30p.m. and dates are as follows:

3rd May ~ 10th May ~ 17th May ~ 24th May  ~ 31st May

The Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated on Friday 2nd June with Bishop McGuckin presiding.  The sacrament of First Eucharist will be celebrated that same weekend in the Parish Mass.  Children who have received the sacrament of Reconciliation are eligible to enrol. Parents and guardians wishing to enrol their child, please contact Father Gonzo at the presbytery on 4662 7031 or email olhcchinchilla@bigpond.com

A sea of blue and yellow will adorn the manicured oval in the Annual St Joey's Cross Country which is scheduled in Week 3, Wednesday 3rd May. Students have been preparing for this event during their PE lessons and have been given every opportunity to be the best they can be. Cross Country for many students is quite challenging, but all students are encouraged to try their best and be the best they can be. I hope all students can feel a sense of pride and achievement on completion of their events, knowing they have put in their very best effort.

Included in the current newsletter is a timetable of the days events and approximate starting times for each age group throughout the day.
