Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to St Joseph’s Tenterfield.

St Joseph’s school has been educating the children of Tenterfield and the surrounding district for over 130 years.

This long-standing tradition began with the Sisters of St Joseph and continues today with the same dedication. At St Joseph’s we are aware of the need for spiritual as well as social, physical, relational, mental and academic education. We see our role as educators as a partnership with parents and therefore invite parents to participate in the life of the school at every opportunity.

Quality teaching and learning is at the forefront of what we do at St Josephs.

Students at St Joseph’s participate in a rich curriculum that incorporates the fundamental aspects of learning with technological innovation. All classrooms have multiple interactive Promethean boards with students in Years K to 6 having access to individual Chrome Books to develop their skills as 21st century learners.

At St Joseph’s our students experience a variety of sporting opportunities and a comprehensive Creative Arts program. We are proud of our extensive ‘Makerspace’ which allows for critical and creative thinking through STEM. Opportunities includes coding, design, investigating and exploring.

Our teaching staff are committed to providing learning experiences which cater to the needs of all students.
