Our School

St Joseph’s School is a Catholic co-educational Primary School within the Archdiocese of Canberra Goulburn, located in Grenfell.  The school caters for 50 students from Kindergarten to Year 6.
St Joseph's Primary provides a dynamic, nurturing and faith centred environment for children from Grenfell and surrounding areas to enjoy challenging and enriching learning opportunities. The warmth and care shown to each child allows them to flourish and develop the confidence needed for success in an ever changing world.

The children at St Joseph's are encouraged to work hard and achieve their personal best, whether it is in the classroom, on the sports fields or through other opportunities they have for their personal and spiritual development and all-round growth. We aim to meet the needs of each child as an individual; each is supported and encouraged by the other boys and girls and by a strong and very committed staff. Whilst protected and nurtured, the children are also challenged in order to build their ability to thrive as adults in the future.

Our teaching and support staff are totally committed to providing the best outcomes for each child to ensure they grow and develop to be the best they can be. We are a family where your child will thrive in every respect and develop as a valued member of our community.

Our students are given the opportunity to develop Christian values by firstly knowing that they are loved by God and others and then following Jesus Christ’s example of loving others. This is developed through our relationships with other people, religious education classes and practice of the rituals of the Catholic faith.
