About St Joseph's Hectorville

About Our School

Your child’s time with St Joseph’s is a “life investment” that establishes strong foundations on which they will build successful and meaningful life. Each child is important.

Our academic, artistic and sporting curriculum is underpinned by values-based development of each individual, to prepare them for the challenges of life. Your child will experience a deep sense of belonging at St Joseph’s. Our teachers offer a safe, nurturing environment that focuses on the whole child.

The school is continually being modernised and within our expansive grounds, children have the resources and the room to live out our school motto:

The teachers are talented, nurturing and provide pastoral care. Students are encouraged to get involved in the life of the school.

St Joseph's is a Catholic school and has served the community since 1863. Signs of the old church can be seen at the rear of the school and Mary MacKillop was an early visitor. 

Children from other faiths are welcome to enrol.
