About the School

St Joseph’s School, Wonthaggi, is situated in South Gippsland on the Bass Coast. The school services Catholic families from within Wonthaggi and surrounding areas.  It is supported by the Parish community to assist parents in the education and formation of their children in Catholic traditions.  The school continually seeks parental involvement at all levels of school life.  

The school was first opened in 1911 by two Sisters of St Joseph.  The school maintains a strong commitment to the Josephite tradition.  

At St Joseph’s Primary School our aim is to provide a quality educational environment that meets the needs of all children. We offer a comprehensive and challenging curriculum which is presented by a committed and professional staff.  St Joseph’s Primary School provides an intervention program for students from Prep to Year six who need extra assistance in the crucial learning areas of literacy and numeracy.  Our school has developed a strong program for students with special needs. 

The current buildings were constructed in 1980 and have since been refurbished with each grade level having an open plan structure, where dividing walls and closed doors are a thing of the past. Instead, we have dynamic learning areas where children can move freely between teaching areas. The floor plan of the room is flexible and ever changing.  

The school provides varied opportunities for its students, including specialist music, physical education, Italian and ICT lessons.
