Class Organisation:

Classes at St Joseph’s are organised to best suit the educational needs of the students. Multi-age classes provide children with a sound academic, social and emotional education. These classes are an extension of the families from which the children come, and in them students experience interaction and cooperation with older and younger children. Opportunities for initiative, leadership, the development of self-esteem and the acceptance of responsibility continue the experiences of family living.

In 2020 we have the following class groupings:

  • MacKillop class – Prep/1/2
  • Colman class – Grades 3/4
  • Xavier class – Grades 5/6
