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

This year, Father’s Day will be on Sunday, 3 September. On Friday, 1 September, our Year 6 class will be hosting a Father’s Day BBQ breakfast for our dads. Please join us from 8.00-8.30am – dads eat free, others require a gold coin donation please.
Following this, we will have our Father’s Day gift stall. Between now and Friday, 1 September, please donate a gift to the value to $5-$10 for the stall. On the day, a special gift may be purchased for dad, or other significant person in your child’s life for $5. If your child wishes to purchase two gifts, you will be required to donate two gifts please. We require some parents to help set up and run the stall. If you can assist, please contact the school office. Thank you!

Congratulations to our two Opti-Minds teams who presented at Central Queensland University on the weekend. Both our Science and Language groups did very well, with our Language group being awarded honours (second place). My thanks again to Miss Corr, assisted by Miss Baumann, who gave their time so freely to prepare our teams.

A reminder that the Instrumental Music students will perform for us on assembly on Thursday 24th August at 8.35am. All welcome.

Our High Tea is rapidly approaching. By now, all families should have received a pack of multi draw raffle tickets to sell. Please return all tickets to the school office (either sold or unsold) by 6 September. If you can sell more than one pack, please feel free to collect some more from the school office. There are some fantastic prizes up for grabs including:

  • Great Keppel Island Hideaway 1 x night 2 adults/2 children
  • $300 Cash Prize donated by Bartlem Construction
  • Empire Accommodation 1 x night for 2 people
  • $300 Photography Voucher Jo Upton Photography
  • $300 Nomad Jones pack including Moroccan Leather Pouff

…..and many more!

The High Tea committee is seeking more volunteers to assist please. I know many people have verbally expressed their willingness to assist with baking, set up etc. but please fill in the e-form. The e-form generates a spreadsheet of details and this is how the committee is organising volunteers and keeping track of what baking we can expect, who can help on the sandwich line etc. If you haven’t completed the e-form as yet and can help in some way, I urge you to complete this as soon as possible. If you need assistance with completing the e-form, please drop into the office – we are only too happy to show you how. Thank you!

Thank you for supporting our 2017 Scholastic Book Fair. We sold approximately $4200 worth of books and the profits from these sales will be used to purchase more books for our school library. Considering we were not able to hold our Joey’s in Jamas event this year, this was a very pleasing outcome. My thanks too, to Mrs Karen Westgarth, our Library Co-ordinator, for her efforts in preparing for and running our Book Fair.

If you have a younger child, or know of another family wishing to enrol their child in Prep at St Joseph’s Wandal, please complete an enrolment application as soon as possible. Enrolment forms can be downloaded online, or alternatively can be collected form the school office.
