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
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.

2018 SCHOOL and HOUSE CAPTAINS
On Monday, I had the pleasure of listening to our potential School and House Captains, as they presented their speeches. I must say that the calibre of the content and delivery was exceptional, highlighting the high level of leadership potential within our current Year 5 class. I would like to thank Mrs Crowe and Mrs Guymer for leading the students in their preparation and leadership workshops throughout the year.
On Tuesday, students in years 4 - 6, cast their votes for who they would like to see in these roles for 2018. These votes will be tallied and our School and House Captains for 2018 will be announced at our Year 6 Graduation Ceremony on Wednesday 29th November.
PREP ORIENTATION MORNING
On Monday 20th November we will have our 2018 Prep classes joining our school for their orientation morning. This will be a valuable opportunity for our future Preppies to meet their new teachers and class members and to become familiar with the school and routines in readiness for next year. The P&F Uniform shop will also be open on this morning for our Prep families to place their orders.
END OF YEAR CONCERT and P&F THANK YOU BBQ
Friday 24th, we will come together as a school community to say thanks and to celebrate the year that has been 2017. Starting from 5.30pm our classes will be performing a Christmas Concert and the P&F will be hosting a BBQ as a small way of saying thank you to all the families at our school who contribute in so many ways to making St Joey’s a great place and school. Food, drink and bar prices are kept to a minimum to show this appreciation. We will also require some parent helpers to assist on the night, so if you could spare some time it would be greatly appreciated.
GRADUATION and PRESENTATION CEREMONY
Our annual Graduation and Presentation Ceremony will be held on Wednesday 29th November at 9.30am in our multi-purpose hall. The ceremony includes the presentation of academic awards for the year, an acknowledgement of graduation and a tribute to the current Year Six students. Everyone is most welcome to attend the event. After the ceremony, morning tea will be held for the parents of the Year Six students and any other visitors. The Year Six students will also cut their graduation cake.
