A Message From the Principal

Welcome to St Joseph’s Primary School South Grafton. We are first Catholic school to be founded in the Diocese of Lismore in 1858. St Joseph is the patron saint of families. We don't just enrol your child, we commit to your whole family, supporting you in any way we can.

We choose to carefully nurture the passions, interests and talents of your child. 

We strive to achieve the fullness of life for every child, helping them to be the best that they can be in all aspects of their life.

Your child has a strong voice in how, where and what they learn, whilst at the same time, we will meticulously cover the curriculum.

We promote a healthy body through our food choices at the canteen and provide daily opportunities for the students to play many sports on our full size oval. Children take part in intensive swimming programs and have the opportunity to represent the school at interschool swimming, cross country and athletics events.

We encourage strong communication links between your home and our school.

St Joseph's - living and growing together.
