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.

SACRAMENTAL JOURNEY
An information evening was held last Tuesday night for parents/guardians who wish their child/children to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and Eucharist in 2016. If you are interested in enrolling your child but were unable to attend the meeting please contact the Parish Office on 4992 1252 for details. It's not too late to register your child. Remember, any child from year 2 upwards is eligible.

Students with vegetable garden and chickensENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVES
St Joseph's School strives to develop environmentally conscience students through a number of environmental sustainable projects. One of our most recent initiatives embraces the notion of less rubbish dumped in landfill. As Pope Francis suggests we need to begin to tidy up. The Earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth….the elderly lament that once beautiful landscapes are now covered with rubbish. Each Wednesday our school participates in a 'Nude Food' initiative, where students are asked to bring in their lunch in plastic containers, free of plastic wrapping. Students are then placed into a weekly draw to win a seedling on our whole school assembly each Monday. Our school also immerses the students in sustainability through our vegetable gardens and chickens. Classes are invited to plant seedlings and take care of their garden plot throughout the year. The school chickens also create quite a buzz throughout the day and are well looked after by all students, especially those in the year 4/5 class.
We hope that these initiatives, although only small in a global sense, educate and ignite a passion in our students to care for the environment and become future sustainable global leaders.

 

SCHOOL BALL
The Annual School Ball is being held at the Civic Centre on Friday 9th October, commencing at 6.30pm, doors open at 6pm. Student dancing lessons are on Thursday each week. Ball tickets are now available for purchase from the school office.

PREP 2016
Prep enrolments for 2016 are now being finalised. For all enrolement enquiries please contact the school office.

LIBRARY AT LUNCH TIMES
The year 6 Outreach Group are giving up their lunch breaks on Thursdays and Fridays to assist students in the library. During playtime, children are invited to come to the library on these days to draw, read, play board games and have stories read to them. On Thursday last week, we had a tremendous response with many students choosing to come to the library. Thank you to year 6 leaders for offering their time to help others.
