Catholic Education South Australia

From the principal


Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for your interest in St Joseph's School, Hindmarsh.

I'm proud to be a part of this wonderful learning community and look forward to sharing it with you.  St Joseph's Catholic School is a faith community, inspired by love - empowered through learning - to make a difference.  Our School motto, "In all things love", inspires us as we continue to support families in the tradition of the Josephite sisters, who founded our school 90 years ago.

We cater for students from Preschool to Year 6.  We also offer families a Supported Playgroup and OSHC including Vacation Care.

We are inspired by the Principles of Reggio Emilia and acknowledge and celebrate children as competent citizens.

You will discover a quality learning environment that offers a comprehensive curriculum which is based on the Australian Curriculum including specialist lessons in Music, Italian and Physical Education.

Learning is co-constructed and dynamic.  Learners are encouraged to IMAGINE, DISCOVER and CREATE and to build meaningful connections with their world.

As capable learners' children are provided with opportunities to develop competencies that build their confidence and skills to engage with the curriculum and ACHIEVE excellence.

The children and families are at the heart of our Catholic community, together we are committed to continuous improvement and lifelong learning.

At St Joseph's we are a welcoming community with a strong emphasis on developing a sense of belonging for both children and families.  We work closely with our Parish community as we nurture the life and faith of children.

St Joseph's has an atmosphere of care and trust, an environment where each child is recognised and respected and feelings of positive self-worth are fostered.  We value the contribution that parents make to the education of their children and recognise the vital role of our parent groups in building the ethos and climate of our Catholic school.

We share your high expectations for your child's learning, wellbeing and personal development and understand the sacrifices that parents make towards their children's education.  Our fees are competitive and structured to allow access for all, offering several payment options to include family and school discounts.

I would welcome the opportunity of discussing the benefits our school has to offer with you and your family.

We are a small community with a big vision leading the way to excellence.

God Bless,

Maria D'Aloia
