 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>

Blessingshttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/Blessings.aspxBlessings<p style="text-align:justify;">​Term 2 has certainly been busy and the upcoming holiday break is especially well deserved. Please travel safely if you are going away over the coming two weeks. Relish the break from the school routine and enjoy the company of your children. We will look forward to seeing you all again for the beginning of Term 3. </p>
Confirmation Masshttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/Confirmation-Mass.aspxConfirmation Mass<p style="text-align:justify;">​There was a real buzz at the Saint Joseph’s church over the weekend. On Saturday evening, we officially welcomed a group of students into our St Joseph’s Parish community through the sacrament of Confirmation. We wish to congratulate our candidates; Angus, Isabella and Ella on this significant and wonderful milestone. A big thank you to Father Biju, Bishop Ken, parents, staff and sponsors for supporting and preparing the children for the sacrament of Confirmation. We know all the children appreciate the love and support that has been provided to them at this important milestone in their lives. I also wish to congratulate Mrs Bryant, Kim Koster, Oonagh and our school choir who led the congregation during our Confirmation Mass. We, as a school community, couldn’t be prouder. Our choir students have been spending many hours rehearsing and they were very excited to share with us a snippet of what they were learning at our end of term Mass this week. They had us up and dancing in the pews….BIG kids included! Thank you to our choir for lifting our spirits.</p>
Sports Newshttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/Sports-News.aspxSports News<p style="text-align:justify;">Athletics Carnival - We were proud, as staff and parents, to see our students display acts of sportsmanship during the Athletics Carnival last Friday. From a shake of the hand at the end of the race to students running beside and cheering on youngers students, encouraging them to the finish line…yet again, we were proud of the sportsmanship and spirit our students brought to the carnival. Congratulations students! On another note, I wish to thank the many staff and parent volunteers who made the day a success. From line marking and an early set up, to afternoon pack up and the organisation and preparation of food to ensure all participants were all well fed. I am forever grateful for your support and the way you all "chipped in" to get the job done. Thank you, also, to Jody Doyle who spent hours in the lead up to the carnival preparing the program to ensure a smooth running of the day. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Due to the wet weather this week, our 200m event was cancelled. This event will take place early next term. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The announcement of Age Champions and overall house winner will still be announced at assembly this Friday. The 200m event will not change the current standings, therefore we can announce Age Champions this Friday at assembly. We hope to see you there! </p>
