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.

The Early Years teachers and students put in a mammoth effort to organise the wonderful Mother’s Day Mass enjoyed by all who attended last Friday. A big thank you goes to Father Gonzo for celebrating the Mass with us and helping to make it special for the children and mums. I hope all our Joey’s mums enjoyed a fantastic day on Sunday and received many well deserved hugs and kisses!

Congratulations to all our Joey's students who competed in Friday's District Cross Country. I was very proud of all the excellent individual performances from all our St Joey's students. We were very dominant on the running track with four age champions and two runners up.

We congratulate the following students who have qualified as members of the Chinchilla & District Cross Country Team to compete in the South West Cross Country Trials on Friday 27th May in St George:  Myles, Ben, Sam, Jamie, Sophie, Eliza, Andrew, Andee, Bella, Thomas, Logan, Zac and Cobi.
