St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Pinjarra is a dynamic co-educational primary school catering for approximately 220 students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year Six. St Joseph’s School was founded by the Sisters of St Joseph’s and the work of these sisters and St Mary MacKillop of the Cross is still the foundation of our school. St Joseph’s is more than just a school providing for the academic needs of students. We seek to create a God centered educational environment where each school community member is nurtured spiritually, academically, socially and physically. Our school holds a vision that all community members will be seen as God sees them, very precious and abundant in potential. We believe that in a nurturing, Christian, professional environment, individuals will be more likely to recognise their potential and find the incentive and encouragement needed to unleash it. We hold this hope for all community members in our school, the staff, students, parents and parish. Our Motto is Faith and Trust: Together we are developing our faith and trust in God. We are learning to share this with one another.
St Joseph’s is committed to raising outcomes in Literacy and Numeracy and implements a number of support strategies across all year levels to ensure that every opportunity is given for successful learning. Students are offered a comprehensive, stimulating and challenging curriculum, with specialist areas including Physical Education, Science and Digital Citizenship. We also offer opportunities for students to participate in instrumental music classes. We have a strong emphasis on 21st Century learning in all classes, with classes from Pre-Kindergarten to Year Six having access to Interactive TVs, while students from Year Three to Six participate in a 1:1 iPad program.

With specially trained teachers in the roles of Key Teacher in Literacy and Mathematics, our Professional Learning Communities provide a rich environment of collegial discussion and collaboration.
