 Principal's Welcome

 

 

Message from the Principalhttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/About Us/Pages/Message-from-the-Principal.aspxMessage from the Principal<p style="text-align:justify;">Dear Parents/Caregivers, </p><p style="text-align:justify;">On behalf of our school community, welcome to the St. Joseph's Primary School, website. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">In 2019, St. Joseph's celebrates its centenary! The school was 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 style="text-align:justify;"><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</li></ul><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;">These values are underpinned by The Word of God and Prayer.</p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;">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.</p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;">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.</p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;">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.</p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;">We ask God's blessing on us all as we journey together throughout 2019, celebrating 100 years of growing the hearts, minds and spirits of learners.</p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;">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. </p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;">In all things, glorify God<strong> </strong></p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;"><strong>Terese Shephard</strong><br>Principal</p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;"><strong>See Also:  </strong><a href="/About%20Us/Pages/Principal%27s-Vision.aspx"><strong>Principal's Vision</strong></a></p>

Fr Bryan's Visithttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/Fr-Bryan's-Visit.aspxFr Bryan's Visit<p>​St Joseph’s Learners, were blessed yesterday to have a visit from Fr Bryan Pepin. Bryan (as he is happy to be called) is the Parish Priest for Murgon. He has committed to St Joseph’s School and Parish to be here in 2021 every Tuesday. Yesterday, the Learners got to know Bryan by asking him questions about himself. The children were very impressed that he was in the army and that ‘he blew things up and set booby traps.’ They asked him about his age, his favourite pet, where he worked in the Philippines, what other countries he had worked in, how long he was in the army and how long was he an army chaplain etc.<br><br>Bryan was able to demonstrate to our learners how he blesses water to make it Holy Water. Then using the Holy Water, he proceeded to bless each Year 6 Learner while holding their paver with their names on it. He used the Holy Water to also bless all our Learners.​<br></p><p>The Year 6 Leaders also handed over the bowl and towel to the incoming Year 5 Learners to leadership in 2021. Bryan discussed with the learners why the bowl and towel were very important symbols in this process. He explained the ‘Washing of the Feet’ at the Last Supper and how it was Jesus who washed the feet as an act of service and respect for all.<br><br>The Learners enjoyed hearing the history of how people walked in Jesus’ time, the streets barefoot or with open sandals, in the sewage and dirt. To clean someone’s feet is a symbol of humility and selfless love of Jesus and others made in the image of God.<br></p><p><br></p><p><img src="/news-events/Latest-News/PublishingImages/Pages/Fr-Bryan%27s-Visit/FrBryan1.jpg" alt="FrBryan1.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:630px;" /><br><br></p>
