 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>

Sydney Canberra Triphttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/Sydney-Canberra-Trip.aspxSydney Canberra Trip<p style="text-align:justify;">It was a tired, yet animated group of students who returned home on Saturday afternoon after an exciting week in Sydney and Canberra. The extended trip home provided yet another story for parents to hear. Whilst we had some rain, our day in the snow was magical and the rain certainly didn’t dampen any enthusiasm! Highlights varied from student to student and included: <br>Royal Australian Mint – seeing Titan the robot in action <br>Questacon – the free fall <br>National Museum – Phar Lap’s heart <br>Parliament House <br>Australian War Memorial <br>The trip was supported by the yearlong fundraising efforts of parents, grandparents and staff. We again thank them for their tireless efforts. We also sincerely thank all the community organisations who donated goods or provided opportunities for our fundraising to occur. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The Australian Government recognises the importance of all young Australians being able to visit the national capital as part of their Civics and Citizenship education. To assist families in meeting the cost of the excursion the Australian Government contributed funding of $80 per student under the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate program towards those costs. The rebate is paid directly to the school upon completion of the excursion. <br>I was very proud of our learners and we received many complements from venue staff and from strangers at airports about their manners and behaviour. Thank you to Mrs Opperman, Mrs Evans and Mr Roth for their care and support of the learners whilst we were away. </p>
