Principal's Welcome

On behalf of the staff and students of St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Pinjarra welcome to our school community.  

St Joseph’s Pinjarra was founded by the Sisters of St Joseph’s and the work of these Sisters and St Mary MacKillop of the Cross remains the foundation of our school. As our Vision statement affirms '…we seek to create a God centered educational environment where each school community member is nurtured spiritually, academically, socially and physically.'

Children from Pre- Kindergarten to Year Six are offered a curriculum which focusses on the whole child. The comprehensive curriculum is stimulating and challenging as we encourage our students to become confident, independent and collaborative learners who have, at their core, the Gospel values that Jesus taught us. We also offer a weekly playgroup which allows parents and their children to meet in an informal setting with a variety of activities for the children to experience. 

Our innovative and dedicated staff strive to provide the best possible spiritual, academic, social and physical opportunities for our students. The School Advisory Council, and Parents and Friends Association work closely with the school to build and strengthen a vibrant community spirit. We are also fortunate to be situated next to St Augustine’s Parish, where together, we are one community in faith. 

Our Motto of Faith and Trust represents that together, we are developing our faith and trust in God and through this relationship we can help our school community develop into an environment of harmony that fosters God’s love.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require further information. 

Many Blessings to you all.
