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 week, the Life Education Van is on premises. All classes will be visiting the Life Education Van and participating in curriculum based modules focussing on issues around food and nutrition, personal safety, physical activity, cyber safety, safety with medications, tobacco, alcohol and caffeine. Harold the Giraffe, alongside his helper Liz, will help our children to develop relationship skills, positive communication (both face to face and online), problem solving and decision making skills.

A reminder that this Friday marks the first round (due to last week’s wet weather) of the Friday afternoon sport season for our Years 4-6 hockey, rugby league and netball teams. Children will not be permitted to participate if they do not have ALL equipment, including hats and water bottles, and instead, will remain at school to complete classwork. Phone calls are not permitted for forgotten equipment.

Parents, don’t forget we have SJW ‘Supporters’ shirts available for sale in the office!

We once again remind parents that while Friday afternoon sport season is underway, students in Years 4-6 will only wear their sports uniforms on Fridays. On Mondays during this time, the students will be participating in the Child Safety Curriculum lessons in their classrooms with Mrs Murphy. If you remain unsure of the uniform arrangements and expectations, please see me for further clarification.
