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.

Back to School 22nd JanuaryAs we enter the final days of our 2017 school year, I would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere appreciation to all for your contributions throughout the school year. We have achieved a lot this year and like always it was a year of growth and learning. To those who will be leaving our school at the end of the year, I wish you all the very best and trust that the skills, values and attitudes you have learnt and developed here at St Joseph’s will stand you in good stead for a bright, happy and successful future. On behalf of the entire school community, I acknowledge the many contributions of our wonderful Year Six group. It is my hope that all students will take with them some part of the Joey’s community as they venture on to new places and adventures.

A special thank you to Mrs Crowe and Miss Marsden for the many hours that went into organising today’s Graduation and Presentation Ceremony. Congratulations to our Year Six Students, all of our award winners for their achievements and to each and every student for the respectful way they participated in the ceremony.

If you know of any family who is seeking enrolment for 2018 and are not yet connected with the school, please pass on this information and encourage them to download a copy of our enrolment form and get it in to us as soon as possible.

Avoid the rush – Click and Collect. The end of year is quickly approaching – with Preps moving into Grade 1 it is time to start thinking about uniforms for next year. To make the Flexischools online ordering process easier, come in and try on uniforms for size, so at the time of ordering you will know what size you need then simply come and collect. Flexischool leaflets are available at the school office, or ask at the uniform shop.

9.00 – 11.00am Wednesday 17th January 2018
