Welcome to St Joseph's Catholic Primary School - Gayndah


 Principal's welcome


 Community News



Well not quite gladiators yet but boy our Brumbies have come a long way this year. I love the chats we have in the playground of a Monday morning about how they went on the weekend and who made the big tackles or scored the important tries. We should also acknowledge the boys and girls who have represented North Burnett also this year! I took a moment today to get a quick pic with what could be future Brisbane Bronco or North Queensland Cowboy superstars of tomorrow. You might just want to keep this newsletter for years to come. PS We will take a moment on Friday at assembly to wish the Gladiators all the very best for their big Grand Final on Saturday.



Next week a number of students from St Joseph’s Primary will be representing our school at the Inter-School Equestrian competition in Maryborough. The competition is always a great couple of days and the students are to be commended for the efforts they put into each event. However, even before that takes place we have several other students who have participated in Pony Club Events, Gymkhana’s and other local and regional equestrian events. They didn’t simply participate, they absolutely smashed it! Time and time again I am sent pictures of students sitting on ribbon draped horses and it makes me proud as punch to know they are giving their very best.

At the recent Maryborough Eisteddfod, Donald walked away with 6 gold medals, a trophy for winning the Under 12’s Championship and a piece of music specifically written for him by Stuart Gillard following his remarkable performance, well done Donald! Outside of our Visual Arts and Drama lessons, there are a couple of students who have been producing some amazing work with local artist Sue Capewell. Sue will be working with the whole school in the coming weeks to paint the beautiful mural in the sports centre. With dance lessons now taking place in Gayndah it is great to see students who were originally a part of our ‘dance crew’ now have made the transition into learning this wonderful craft outside of school. Always full of energy, the dance sessions are a buzz of excitement and enthusiasm whenever I pop over to the GACC.



Earlier this term the Brisbane Catholic Education Magazine did a feature piece on the students from St Joseph’s following their efforts at the Catholic Schools Netball Cup. The article spoke of their wonderful efforts and the journey to be there following the support of their parents. I had the pleasure of popping out to a Regional Netball Carnival a few weeks ago to see several of our students racing around the Gayndah courts and I would have to say the highlight for me was Isla saying “Wow dad, these guys are really good”, that and their smiling faces.
