Class Arrangement & Staffing

Decisions regarding class sizes and staffing are made in consultation with the Townsville Catholic Education Office (TCEO) and are determined by TCEO guidelines and budget allocations. At St Joseph’s, staff are encouraged and supported to be dedicated, passionate, hard-working, creative, knowledgeable, collaborative, caring and highly professional educators. Staff are given multiple opportunities each year for quality professional development and they are expected to actively embrace change for improved student outcomes. We believe in the value of being ‘life-long learners’ and we strive to be authentic role models for our students.
In 2019, St Joseph’s has 14 class groupings from Prep to Year 6, with two classes of each year level as follows:
              Prep Green    Prep Gold
             1 Green          1 Gold
             2 Green          2 Gold
             3 Green          3 Gold
             4 Green          4 Gold
             5 Green          5 Gold
             6 Green          6 Gold
