 Principal's Welcome

 

 

Message from the Principalhttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/About Us/Pages/Message-from-the-Principal.aspxMessage from the Principal<p> </p><p>On behalf of our school community, welcome to the St. Joseph's Primary School, website.</p><p> </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</li><li>Partnership</li><li>Hospitality</li><li>Stewardship</li><li>Peace</li><li>Balance</li><li>Compassion</li><li>Humility</li><li>Healing </li><li>Listening<br><br>These values are underpinned by The Word of God and Prayer.<br> <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><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><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><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><br>In all things, glorify God<br><br><strong> </strong><br><br><strong>Terese Shephard</strong><br><br>Acting Principal</li></ul> <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>

Sports Newshttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/Sports-News.aspxSports News<p style="text-align:justify;">Athletics - As we approach the halfway mark of this term, athletics is beginning to take shape through our Athletics Program and PE lessons. This year, our school Athletics carnival is to be held on Friday, 22 June and it will be held on our school grounds. A timetable of the day will be made available in the next week. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">We are always looking for volunteers to assist on the day. Please email me at <a href="mailto:rmoconnor@bne.catholic.edu.au">rmoconnor@bne.catholic.edu.au</a>  if you can assist with one or any of the following: </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Set up </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Event support (e.g. raking the long jump pit, rearranging equipment, scoring, marshalling etc.) </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Pack down </p><p style="text-align:justify;">I look forward to hearing from you! </p>
Sorry Dayhttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/Sorry-Day.aspxSorry Day<p style="text-align:justify;"><img class="ms-rtePosition-2" alt="sorryday.png" src="/news-events/Latest-News/PublishingImages/Pages/Sorry-Day/sorryday.png" style="margin:5px 15px;" />On Friday 25th May, our students will acknowledge Sorry Day with an assembly and Liturgy of the Word. Every year, we join together as a school community and as a nation to say we are sorry, remembering the wrongdoings against the Stolen Generations and their families, recognising the pain and suffering they have endured, and acknowledging the lessons we have learned from a very dark era in Australia’s history. It is also a day to commemorate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s history, and celebrate their survival, culture and community. We must recognise that we all have a role to play, no matter how small, to recognise the richness and diversity of the First Nation’s cultures of this land. Our Year 4 students will be leading us in prayer and we hope you can join us this Friday at 2:30pm in our hall. </p>
