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

Thank you to the many families who attended this social gathering on Friday night. It was a great chance to catch up with many of you, and I’m sure the performances by our children kept you thoroughly entertained. A special thanks to Santa, who, with the help of Mr Grice and his fire truck, popped in for a quick hello.

My thanks to the P&F Committee and their band of helpers for their assistance in running the night. I never cease to be amazed by the generosity shown by many of the parents in this school – we couldn’t do it without you! If, as parents, you are looking for a way to contribute something to the school community, I urge you to come along to a P and F Meeting in the New Year. My thanks, once more, to the P and F Executive Committee of 2017: Mrs Emma Singleton, Mrs Kalie Green, Mrs Tricia O’Hanlon and Ms Anna Harding.

Whilst all of our Year 6 students of 2018 will have special school leadership roles and responsibilities, we offer particular congratulations to the following students:

  • 2018 School Captains: Sarah and Baden
  • Penola House Captains – April and Scarlett
  • MacKillop House Captains – Aliviah and Darcy
  • Tenison House Captains– Ruby and Jackson


Please be advised that nominations for “Wandal’s Got Talent” will be taken by our Year 5 students in the coming week. This is an event which is held in the last week of school. All of our students are welcome to showcase their special talents. Please note that this is a very informal event – our priority is our students ‘having a go’ and having fun! All students are welcome to participate. Students in Prep - Year Two will perform on Tuesday 28th November from 11.40am onwards. Years 3 - 6 students will perform on the following day, also from 11.40am. Please feel free to pop along for some entertainment by our talented students!

St Joseph’s Wandal is once again called to serve the local community. St Vincent De Paul has launched their Christmas Appeal hampers. This year we are collecting items to donate Christmas hampers for families within the Rockhampton community. Hampers will be kept in the classrooms. Some items which may be donated include tinned vegetables, cereals, long life milk, soft drinks, juice and snacks such as chips, nuts, biscuits and lollies.
