Principal’s Welcome

Dear Parents,

It is with great excitement and appreciation for being given the privilege to serve and educate our children at St Joseph’s Catholic School as Principal in 2021. Last year our School Review process identified St Joseph’s as a caring and collaborative learning community that is fully committed to the development of each child spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially.

St Joseph’s has a strong identity in the Wauchope community, we belong to a faith filled Catholic community in a loving partnership with our Parish – Our Lady of Lourdes. We strive each day to live out our school motto of ‘In God We Trust’. Our students are well supported by dedicated teachers and support staff, our committed Parish Priest, Fr Felix Ekeh and our welcoming and enthusiastic Parents and Friends Committee.

St Joseph’s Catholic School Wauchope is deeply committed to the provision of a contemporary curriculum that strives for excellence for all learners and this is evident in strong academic results. All students have access to an extensive range of digital resources that foster creativity, thinking and innovation. Our students are fully involved in co-curricular activities and committed to social justice outreach initiatives. Our students are happy learners who have access to attractive, contemporary, flexible learning spaces and grounds.

It is our belief that we are a supportive and inclusive school, enabling all students to achieve the fullness of life (Jn: 10:10). I look forward to continuing to work with our existing families as well as welcoming prospective parents and friends, for a tour of this wonderful school community. With every blessing for a safe, successful and happy 2021.

Peace Be with You

Brendan Kiely
