 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>​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>

Congratulations and Farewellhttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/Congratulations-and-Farewell.aspxCongratulations and Farewell<p>​​Congratulations to our Year 6 students who graduated in a meaningful ceremony last night. Each student formed a strong and positive relationship with the community. We thank the families for the support of their children during their journey at St, Joseph’s. Parents can feel extremely proud of their children. <br></p><p>We know that as we grow as a school community, we will always stay connected to these students after they leave us for their secondary education and beyond. Our prayer is that these students will maintain an active involvement in our school especially as they have formed part of our foundation years. Our Year 6 students have prepared for their transition to secondary education and this is an exciting time for both the students and for us as a community. Farewell Year 6 Leaders. Our blessings go with you. </p><p>We welcome our Year 5 cohort to this new role as leaders for 2019 and look forward to working with them in their leadership responsibilities. <br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/news-events/Latest-News/PublishingImages/Pages/Congratulations-and-Farewell/year6graduation2018.jpg" alt="year6graduation2018.jpg" style="margin:5px;" />​<br></p>
School Centenaryhttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/School-Centenary.aspxSchool Centenary<p style="text-align:justify;">​​St. Joseph’s proudly celebrates a centenary of Catholic education in Gayndah in 2019. Our theme is: <strong><em>Growing the minds, hearts and spirits of learners for 100 years</em></strong>. There will be many opportunities to celebrate throughout the year. If you have any ideas, please come along to the next planning meeting (check the school newsletter for dates).​<br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/news-events/Latest-News/PublishingImages/Pages/School-Centenary/100year.jpg" alt="100year.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:250px;height:189px;" />​<br></p>
2019 at St Joseph'shttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/2019-at-St-Joseph's.aspx2019 at St Joseph's<p>​​Apart from class and staffing changes, 2019 sees other exciting innovations at St. Joseph’s. In 2019, we will be a <strong>1:1 iPad school</strong>, with every learner having access to a device to support their learning. Explicit teaching will occur in the first term regarding care of the device, safety when using and expectations for learning and behaviour regarding the device. Further information regarding the iPads will be sent home early in 2019. </p><p><strong>Booklists</strong>: In 2019 the school will provide classrooms resources, for example, exercise books, pencils etc. Resources will be shared in the classroom so students will not need pencil cases. Parents are asked to provide: Art shirt Headphones (iPad compatible) Box of tissues Library bag (New in Uniform Shop $10) Please name all belongings, except tissues.<br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/news-events/Latest-News/PublishingImages/Pages/2019-at-St-Joseph%27s/bigstock-Notebook-stack-and-pencils-Sc-34496234.jpg" alt="bigstock-Notebook-stack-and-pencils-Sc-34496234.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:301px;" /><br><br></p>
