Welcome to our website...

St Joseph's Wandal is a Catholic primary school, which offers quality Catholic education influenced by the charism of the Sisters of St Joseph and the Vincentian traditions. Staff, students and parents work in partnership to honour this tradition in our school community by being a community, which is centred on the ideal of service through love.

The school community consists of approximately 230 students drawn from suburban areas and nearby rural communities. The school is characterised by a welcoming, family friendly atmosphere. Well-developed academic, sporting and cultural programmes encourage the children to develop to the extent of their potential.Catholic Education - Diocese of Rockhampton

An active P&F Association and School Board provide assistance and support to the school community.

We will hold our first disco for the 2018 school year, in the quadrangle, on Friday 1st June. $6 will cover student entry, a sausage on bread and a drink. Additional drinks, sausages and packets of chips will be available for sale for $2 each. The theme is “Country” so have your cowboy hats at the ready! Our P and F will be serving drinks and nibblies for the grownups in the downstairs Tuckshop area while the children are at the disco. Staff supervision will be provided in the quadrangle area. Please note that students will not be permitted in any other area of the school, including the Tuckshop area. Thank you for supporting our Year Six students’ camp fundraising efforts.

The 2018 Premier's Reading Challenge began on Monday and we are encouraging all students at St Joseph’s to take part. Please use the following link to view a range of fiction and non-fiction books suitable to your child’s age and reading ability.http://education.qld.gov.au/schools/readingchallenge/booklist.html. Recording sheets are available in the school office. My thanks to Mrs McKenzie who has once again offered to organise this challenge.

This week, I am starting to interview siblings of existing students for Prep positions in 2019. This is commencing a little earlier than normal, due to the high number of enrolment enquiries we are receiving. If you know of anyone wishing to enrol at our wonderful school in 2019, please urge them to complete the required enrolment paperwork a soon as possible.
