St Joseph's Primary School Catholic Schools


Dear Parents,


The community of St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Tara would like to welcome you to our Parish school. During your time with us, we will strive to provide your child with the essential skills and learning experiences that will provide the platform for life-long learning as they become the future leaders of our society.


As a Catholic School, we believe that each person was created in the image and likeness of God. We all share in the news that Jesus died for us so that we could have life. We also believe He rose to be among us and for this reason, we encourage each person to be a living example of the Gospel vales and let Jesus shine out for all to see.


As educators, we envision our staff working in partnership with parents, children and community members. We hope to work in partnership with you so that each child may reach their full potential.

The school offers professional and dedicated staff who endeavour to deliver a curriculum which is both exciting and innovative.
