Welcome to St Joseph’s School, Hectorville! I hope you enjoy navigating the website.
Raising children can be difficult. I have two children myself and understand the different pressures that exist for parents. However, parenting is also rewarding, enjoyable and satisfying.
Choosing a school for your child is a big decision. This is why when it comes time to sending your child to school, it is important you choose a school that is ‘right’ for your child and for your family.
At St Joseph’s Hectorville we believe that for optimal child development, there needs to be a strong partnership between school and home. We want children growing and developing into fine young people. We believe that quality teaching and learning is paramount – no questions asked. However, it is also imperative children have the attributes to operate in the real world, no matter which path they choose later in life. The characteristics I refer to: demonstrating mental toughness (resilience); acting with courage (when it counts); connecting with others, including having good people and communication skills; valuing the importance of a strong work ethic; being a sound decision maker; and, a respectful human being.
If these sound like qualities you wish for your child, I encourage you to think about sending your child here. You can find out more about St Joseph’s Hectorville, by joining me (and a couple of senior students) on a School Tour. These are held every Tuesday morning at 9:30am (during the school term).
I would love the opportunity to walk around the school with you and show our wonderful and varied learning spaces. During this time, you will have the chance to visit classrooms and ask any questions that are important to you. There is no need to book, just turn up at the Front Office. If the time or day is not convenient for you, please call the school to arrange a conveniently mutual time.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
