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.

Community News

Year Five Visit to TCC -
Our Year Five Students will be travelling to TCC tomorrow to see first-hand what High School is all about. Students will take part in Hospitality/Catering, Information Technology, Manual Arts, Drama, Art and Science lessons. Students are reminded to bring their school hat, a water bottle and lunch.

Parent Lounge and Report Cards -
Semester One Report Cards will be available via Parent Lounge tomorrow 4pm (Thursday, 28 June). As always, school computers are available for parent use upon request.

Parent Engagement
Our P and F will meet in the staffroom tomorrow at 5pm. We hope to get the ball well and truly rolling with our preparations for our High Tea at this meeting. I will also share the most up to date plans for our new building works. As always, all are welcome to attend. Our School Board will meet immediately afterwards at 6pm.

Prep Parent Information Session
Letters have been distributed this week inviting prospective families to attend our Prep Parent Information Session on Thursday 26th July at 5.15pm-6.15pm. If you know of anyone interested in enrolling their children at our wonderful school for 2019, please urge them to complete the necessary paperwork as soon as possible.

Building update
As you were notified earlier in the year, we have been approved for an Australian Government Capital Grant to assist our school with the construction of the following:

  • an additional general learning area,
  • new administration, staffroom and learning support area,
  • the conversion of existing administration and staffroom spaces to general learning areas
  • the refurbishment of a multi-purpose room
  • the updating of both boys and girls amenities, and additional amenities built.
  • the updating and resurfacing of the carpark adjacent to the school

Our school continues to grow, and this project will update aging spaces, help to accommodate our (near) doubled enrolments and assist us to provide the best learning environments for our students. The project will commence at the beginning of Term Three and will no doubt cause some interruptions to the normal flow of movement and use of spaces.
The two-minute drop off and pick up zone along Herbert Street will be impacted. During the building process, this zone will be temporarily relocated further down Herbert Street, towards the corner of Rundle Street.
