Welcome to St Joseph’s

At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, South Murwillumbah, we pride ourselves on providing our students with every opportunity to experience success throughout their daily learning journey within a contemporary learning environment.
We focus upon fostering a growth mindset to instil in our students the confidence to grow and improve, with the resilience to take risks with their learning. We have a ‘You Can Do It!’ attitude! Coupled with our positive behaviour support practices and gospel values underpinning all we do, we believe that we are developing capable, confident, morally grounded citizens and leaders of the future.
Our very professional, highly qualified and dedicated staff work collaboratively to ensure that the wellbeing and learning needs of each student are recognised, nurtured and their full potential realised.
As with our diocesan mission, we strive daily to
‘enable students to achieve the fullness of life!’ John 10:10

The St. Joseph’s School Community is called to be a partnership of home, school and parish all working together to:

  • Ensure Gospel values, Scripture, Catholic tradition, support for the development of self-esteem and mutual respect are experienced in all aspects of learning and life.
  • Strive for excellence in education and for the provision of quality educational opportunities, which challenge and cater for each child’s individual abilities, needs and learning styles.
  • Value the rights and responsibilities of everyone within firm guidelines.
