Principal's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to St Joseph’s School Barmera.

At St Joseph's School Barmera we work together with our parish, families, and our local community towards the holistic education of young people.

With Christ as our guiding light and in the charism of St Mary Mackillop of the Cross, we seek to recognise, appreciate, and develop the gifts and talents of all in our care; with courage, and in the spirit of partnership, love and service.

Our school is a place where students can confidently learn more about themselves, others, the world, and God as they grow to be compassionate, active, and just contributors to society.

Our students, their learning, and their wellbeing are our core business and are at the heart of everything we do.

St Joseph's School Barmera is recognised for proudly offering quality, inclusive, Catholic education.

We create a safe, nurturing yet challenging environment that is built on positive relationships, developing the whole student – emotionally, socially and academically.

We have high expectations for our students and work in partnership with parents. We care for and appreciate each of our students as the unique individuals that they are, each with distinct talents, interests and needs.

Choosing to enrol your child at St Joseph’s School Barmera will be both rewarding and fulfilling.

We invite you to experience our warm and welcoming environment where your child is at the centre of all learning. 

I look forward to welcoming you into our community and working in partnership with you to ensure your child reaches their full potential.
