NEW PREP PRECINCT FROM 2015
From 2015, a new prep precinct will be introduced at St Joseph's. Prep will be relocated to the main area of the school, with purpose-designed learning and play spaces. This move will provide children with a smooth transition into the main school environment.
Repositioning prep in the main school will help children build a sense of independence and confidence as they learn school routines in preparation for Year 1.

St Joseph's now has a middle schooling approach in upper primary linking into Good Shepherd Catholic College for pastoral care, sporting, and Gifted and Talented programs.
