Welcome to our website

St Joseph's is a co-educational primary school located in the town of Biloela, providing education for students from Prep to Year Six. The school seeks to provide the students with a high quality education, based on the living values of Jesus as expressed in the Gospels.

St Joseph’s Catholic School seeks to develop the wholeness of the child in all aspects of his/her growth. These aspects of growth include the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual and cover a sense of social responsibility and a sense of justice.

At St Joseph’s School Biloela, we envisage that our school curriculum will shape and produce critical and creative self-directed learners who strive for excellence, actively participate within their community, and show justice, integrity and compassion to all.

Year 1/2 and 1A fostering a love of learning in their reading groupsOur school believes that learning must be engaging and relevant to the needs of all learners. If learning is not loved than success may be limited. We foster a love of learning by promoting authentic and meaningful learning experiences. Year 1/2 and 2A have been fostering a love of reading! They have been learning about how different strategies can help them figure out how to read really long words (and the short ones too). Parents and teachers spend time reading with groups and discussing what their favourite part is or what they think might come next in the story. They then continue to practise their skills as a part of the Daily 5.

If you know of families/friends who have Prep age children and who might be interested in attending an enrolment interview, please advise them to contact the school.






Drakes now own the IGA in Biloela and are very willing to support the preservation of our beautiful St Joseph’s Cathedral in Rockhampton.

The Cathedral was recently renovated at a cost of 6.5 million dollars and it is very important for the building to be maintained. Drakes have offered to give one cent for every dollar you spend to the Cathedral Conservation Fund. This is an amazing and generous fundraiser and a huge community effort. All you have to do is simply accept a Community Dollars keytag and present it at any Drakes Supa Iga checkout when you shop – no cost to you and no cost to the Cathedral.

Keytags are available at the school office for a short time, as well as at the IGA. Be sure to give them out to your friends, family and work colleagues.
