Principal's Message

Twitter Timeline

Our school was established in 1953 by the Sisters of St Joseph. Their charism has had a great impact on our culture. The core values at St Joseph’s Primary School, Oatley are Faith, Knowledge and Peace. Our Parish Priest, Father Paul Hilder, the staff and parents work together to assist the students to deepen their knowledge and love of the    Catholic faith. Our community prays together daily, reaches out to those in need and is focussed on the education of children. The students visit the elderly, attend local celebrations and are active in exploring and supporting              social justice issues.

We have a strong academic focus and strive to cater for the diverse needs of our students. This is evidenced by our innovative special needs program and exciting enrichment initiatives. We aim to prepare our students for the 21st Century by developing skills that will assist them to collaborate, create and inquire.  Our Inquiring Minds Space provides opportunities for the students to participate in STEM activities.  In 2018 the school embarked on the three year accreditation process as part of the Newman Selective Gifted Education Program.

Students have the opportunity to develop a variety of sport skills and the primary aged children participate in an inter-school sport program. Students learn dance and drama under the guidance of a specialist teacher and band is offered to students from year 3 and beyond. There are a variety of extra-curricular activities that further develop the talents of our students. The children, parents and teachers work together in a respectful manner to achieve a welcoming and caring atmosphere where all members of the community learn together.

Kind regards
