 Principal's Welcome

 

 

Message from the Principalhttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/About Us/Pages/Message-from-the-Principal.aspxMessage from the Principal<p>On behalf of our school community, welcome to the St. Joseph's Primary School, website.<br></p><p>The school opened on October 6, 1919 by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan and the hard working members of the St. Joseph's parish community.  We continue to honour the presence of the sisters as we strive to live out the Benedictine charism and values of:</p><ul><li>Community, <br></li><li>Partnership, <br></li><li>Hospitality, <br></li><li>Stewardship, <br></li><li>Peace, <br></li><li>Balance, <br></li><li>Compassion, <br></li><li>Humility, <br></li><li>Healing, </li><li>Listening.  <br></li></ul><div>These values are underpinned by The Word of God and Prayer.<br><br>Our staff embody these values as they seek to teach, challenge and transform the learners placed in our care.  They are committed to providing quality learning experiences as they support all students to realise their potential. Learners are known holistically and their spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional and social needs are catered for.  <br><br>As an educational leader, I believe that all learners can succeed, but not in the same way and not on the same day.  I believe in having high expectations on all learners and supporting them to meet those expectations.<br><br>We look forward to working in partnership with you, the community of St. Joseph's, as together we grow our learners.  We welcome parents as their child's first educators, to engage in the learning journey of the children.  There are plenty of opportunities for parents to engage with the school and with their child's learning.<br><br>We ask God's blessing on us all as we journey together throughout 2018. <br><br>God of the journey, be among us.  We ask this confident of your faithful kindness and in the name of Christ who journeyed before us, and the Spirit who lights the way.<br><br>In all things, glorify God<br><br><strong> </strong><br><strong>Terese Shephard​</strong><br>Acting Principal</div> <p class="ms-rteElement-P"><br><strong>See Also:  </strong><a href="/About%20Us/Pages/Principal%27s-Vision.aspx"><strong>Principal's Vision</strong></a></p>

Book Weekhttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/Book-Week.aspxBook Week<p>The Children’s Book Council of Australia Book Week will be held from the 18th to the 24th of August, 2018 and the Theme for this year is: “Find Your Treasure”. In library lessons we are discussing how books are “treasures” as they can be precious and important to us. We are enjoying investigating the lovely books shortlisted for this year.</p><p><strong>Family Reading Morning and Dress Up Day</strong>: On Friday, the 24th of August, we will be holding a Family Reading Morning on the library deck from 8.20 am, followed by our Dress Up Book Parade at 8.40 am. Dress up ideas for the parade have been sent home today. Students are asked to dress up as one of the characters in the shortlisted books, or as a character in their favourite book. I have given just a few ideas but I am sure you will be able to come up with many more. Do not hesitate to visit the library should you wish to peruse the books yourself for ideas.</p><p>Students are able to remain in their costume all day if they are comfortable, OR may put their school uniform back on if needed.</p><p>We look for forward to seeing all our families and the pre-Prep children at our Family Reading Morning and Dress Up Book Parade on the 24th .</p><p><strong>Ice Blocks:</strong> Ice blocks will also be for sale at Snack Time on Friday. They are $1.00 each and the money raised will go to the drought appeal. We look forward to your support for this vital cause.</p><p>We believe that together we can assist our students to “Find their Treasure” and come to value books, as pirates in the past valued their jewels and gold!<br></p><p>Happy Reading!<br>Mrs Karen Madden and Mrs Suze McGregor</p><p style="text-align:center;"><img alt="BookWeek2018.jpg" src="/news-events/Latest-News/PublishingImages/Pages/Book-Week/BookWeek2018.jpg" style="margin:5px;" />​​</p>
Support for Communityhttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/Support-for-Community.aspxSupport for Community<p>This Friday students are encouraged to dress in green and gold to support the Gayndah Gladiators in their quest for grand final glory on Saturday afternoon. Our Year 5/6 parents are manning the canteen. We encourage children to bring along a gold coin donation which will be donated to drought-affected families through School Aid Trust’s Hampers for Hay and Hope appeal.   <br><a href="https://schoolaidtrust.com/project/drought-hampers-and-hay-for-hope" target="_blank">https://schoolaidtrust.com/project/drought-hampers-and-hay-for-hope</a></p><p>The following Friday, 24 August, we celebrate Book Week with a family reading morning and parade of characters.
