Uniform

St. Joseph's Primary School's reputation is influenced, in part, by our community presentation, which encompasses the proper wearing of uniforms and the personal care standards of our students.

You can acquire uniforms conveniently through Dobsons, either online or by visiting the Uniform Shop at the school every Friday from 8:30 to 11:00 am.

Volunteering & Child Safe Induction

St. Joseph’s Primary School community has a long, supportive and valuable history of parent/carer involvement and volunteering. We welcome the involvement and support of our parents, carers and local community in our school.

Anyone wishing to commence volunteering at St Joseph’s school will be required to follow Child Safety Standards processes. This involves:

  • A copy of a current WWCC

  • Completing a St Joseph’s Volunteer Application Form

  • Signing a Volunteer Code of Conduct

 

The volunteer applicant will then be involved in a:

  • Volunteer Child Safety Induction

  • Meeting with Principal, Deputy Principal or Pastoral WellbeingLeader

  • Referee Checks

Volunteers can then contribute to supporting the school community.

Parent & Friends Association

The St Joseph’s Parents & Friends Association (P&F) aims to encourage social interaction between families (by organising events for parents, students and staff). It assists in building a sense of community and wellbeing within the school. It supports the raising of funds for student learning through projects and resources that would not otherwise be financed. In past years, events have included Welcome BBQs, Mother’s and Father’s Day breakfast and morning tea, raffles, Colour Run, along with raising money through fundraising activities.

 

The P&F welcomes all parents and encourages you to become involved. Being a member of the P&F is a rewarding and enjoyable way of being involved in our school community. It offers the opportunity to meet school families and contribute to the welcoming and vibrant St Joseph’s community.

School Advisory Council

The School Advisory Council exists as a body to promote and support St. Joseph’s School in the provision of Catholic Education. It provides a forum for discussion and discernment, where parent voice and community perspective are available to inform and support the decisions made by the school, where students’ wellbeing and outcomes are at the forefront. 

 

These are some examples of ways the School Advisory Council supports the school and the principal:

  • Articulating and enacting the school’s vision and mission

  • Promoting the school’s Catholic ethos and culture

  • Supporting school policies as required

  • Discussing school improvement plans and strategic plans

  • Engaging in in the annual school budget and other financial matters

  • Providing capital resource planning and maintenance support to the principal.
