Welcome to St Joseph’s



Established in 1858, St Joseph’s was the First Catholic School on the North Coast. Under the administration of the Sisters of Mercy until the late 1970s and a part of the Clarence Valley Catholic Parish.
St Joey’s is a strong and vibrant Catholic primary school for boys and girls from Years K-6. We have an innovative and dynamic environment which fosters critical thinking, curiosity, and joy in learning.
We educate the “head, hearts, and hands” enabling our students to achieve the school’s mission of “Enabling students to the fullness of life.” We place a high priority on the development of the person’s spiritual, intellectual, physical, moral and emotional life.
Whether you are a friend, a potential new friend or just browsing I hope that you get the information you are seeking. Websites are a great introduction but are rarely able to capture the true spirit of a place. It is my hope that you might visit us and tour the School so that you can see for yourself why it is that St Joseph’s Primary School has become well known as a place of quality Catholic education.
