Junior classrooms

Welcome to the Junior Classrooms of St Joseph’s 2022 –

The Junior Classrooms at St Joseph’s consists of Foundation, Years One and Two. These vital years are when children  develop a concept of themselves as a learner and as a friend. It is during these formative years which the foundations are laid for future learning, personal resilience, enjoyment of challenges and curriculum engagement.

In addition to the classroom curriculum, children are immersed in a varied Specialist Program consisting of:

  • Performing Arts
  • STEM / Digital Technology
  • RRRR (Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships)
  • Languages – Auslan

Quick reminders:

Water Bottles / Fruit
We ask that children continue to have their own drink bottles at school and that these are cleaned on a regular basis. Children are to have fruit at school for daily fruit breaks at 10:00am and 12:30pm.

Children are expected to be in full school uniform each day. If children are out of uniform for any reason please inform class teachers.
School Hat – please make sure your child has their correct school hat at school each day and that they have their names clearly marked on them. No hat! No play!
