ST Joseph's is in the process of making the final preparations for the pre-kinder class which begins next term.

These are full day sessions on a Monday.

If you know of anyone who may be interested in our wonderful program, please get them to see us for an enrolment form.

This program has proven to be a successful transition into kindergarten for all children who have participated.

NAIDOC Week

WE had a wonderful week celebrating our Indigenous culture.

We began the week dressing in the colours of the Aboriginal flag and completed lessons and artwork in class.

Students also participated in Indigenous games co-ordinated by our year six students.

Book Fair

THE school's annual Book Fair was held last week.

It was so lovely to see the joy and happiness on students' faces as they entered the fair.

A big thank you to all students, parents and teachers who helped make it a great success.

The school sold $2500 in books. As a result, we received a commission for $700.

This money will go towards further books and supplies in the library.
