Principal's Message

We are proud to invite
you to experience our wonderful learning environment.

Hello and welcome,

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to St Joseph's School Hindmarsh.

We welcome children from Preschool to Year 6 and share your high expectations for your child's learning, wellbeing and personal development.

St Joseph's School Hindmarsh 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 Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop, the founder of the Sisters of St Joseph who started our school over 90 years ago.

We offer a dynamic and inspiring environment that nurtures and builds confidence in all students and provide opportunities for every child to succeed.

Our school is well-equipped with modern facilities and flexible learning spaces, facilitating learning across the curriculum including STEM, Inquiry, Italian, Music and Physical Education.

We also offer families a supported Playgroup, Preschool and OSHC including Vacation Care.


Our quality learning environment aligns with the Australian Curriculum and is inspired by the Principles of Reggio Emilia, enabling children to use their agency in their learning. We are committed to providing opportunities for students to IMAGINE, DISCOVER, CREATE and ACHIEVE, to acquire the dispositions and capabilities for success now and in the future.

St Joseph's Hindmarsh is committed to nurturing a culture of respect and an atmosphere of care and trust, 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 community of our Catholic school.

We recognise 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 look forward to meeting you and discussing how we can work together to ensure your child thrives as a learner, as a person, and as a leader in the St Joseph's School community and in the world.

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

God bless,

Marianne Farrugia
