Why St Joseph's

We continually hear from our St Joseph’s Hectorville families that our school provides a valuable space to grow alongside their child’s needs – because while we maintain a ‘small school feel’ amongst our classrooms, our grounds and facilities are vast.

This purposeful approach to our school’s planning allows students to begin exploring more at their own pace. While our reception students feel at ease in their comfortable, safe and familiar surroundings, our older students (up to year 6) have room to run, move and explore.

In the classroom setting our approach to learning is to focus on the whole of each student’s needs – across academic, social and emotional education.

“All of the teachers and team members of St Joseph’s Hectorville are just beautiful. Our daughter loves going to school and learning new things. We highly recommend St Joseph’s.” – Nicole, school parent

Our ultimate aim is to help your child ignite a passion for leaning that will stay with them for life. We know that each child learns differently, and this is why we engage our students in different ways through relevant, connected and purposeful teaching styles. Each child has the capability to be a successful learner, and our goal is to ensure this happens (and provide incredible memories for our students along the way).

We offer exceptional experiences for your child, through our state-of-the-art Media Room, Expressive Arts Centre and Sports Program which includes our soccer, netball and Aussie Rules academies.

Our facilities are continually being upgraded so that within our expansive grounds our children have the resources and the room to live out our school motto:

Ignite, Engage, Achieve

Ignite your passion
Engage in learning
Achieve your best
