Growing in excellence within a Christ-centred community.



Principal's Message


Welcome to St Joseph's School!

I am very proud to introduce our school to you.

St Joseph 's is a Catholic Systemic Primary School which was established in O'Connor in 1956. We are a proudly Catholic school that bases all that we do on Gospel values and this is evident in the way all members of our community interact with and treat each other.

St Joseph 's recognizes that parents are the first educators of their children and that we support parents by building on the foundation that has already been established. It is our aim to provide a safe, happy and supportive atmosphere where all students work co-operatively to reach their full potential.I hope you enjoy finding out about our wonderful school.


Sue Dempsey, Principal

On Sunday the 29th of May our students will be celebrating First Eucharist at 9am in the Parish church.

Results for Reading and Numeracy in the 2015 NAPLAN assessments confirmed significant improvements for students from Year 3 to Year 5 in both areas.

St Joseph’s was one of two ACT Catholic Primary Schools with this achievement.
