St Joseph's Primary School, Millmerran caters for children from Prep to Year 6. The current level of student enrolments allows for close interaction between parents, students and staff. At St Joseph’s, we promote a high level of learning for all students.

St Joseph's Millmerran was established in 1959 and originally staffed by the Sisters of St Joseph, an Australian order founded by Saint Mary MacKillop in 1866. The school was built with much voluntary labour and is regarded by the Catholic community with great pride.

As part of the Diocese of Toowoomba, the school is administered by the Toowoomba Catholic Education Office.

What an amazing and busy start we have had to the year here at St Joseph's. A very special congratulations to our Year 6 leaders who were officially sworn in during our Opening School Mass and School Leaders Investiture Ceremony this week. This was a wonderful celebration and a great coming together of all members of our community including our staff, students, families and parishioners.

I wish our school leaders and our school community a wonderful 2020. I know our leaders will be wonderful representatives of our school, who will put their own special mark on our wonderful school. Thank you for all those who made the day a success and for those who were able to be a part of our shared morning tea.

ASH WEDNESDAY
Please join us on Wednesday 26th February at 9.30am for Mass as we begin the Lenten season.

EVERY CHILD SHOULD EXPERIENCE SUCCESS AND GROWTH
This year we will continue to focus on using data to improve our teaching practices at St Joseph's. We believe that every child should experience success and growth; spiritually, culturally, through sport and in academics. In examining our data from 2019, it is clear that we took great steps last year to improve student outcome and we look forward to continuing to build on our 2019 successes. In the 2019 NAPLAN 95% of our Year 3 and 5 students were above the national benchmark in Grammar and Punctuation and 100% of Year 3 and 5 students were above the national benchmark in all the remaining areas of Reading, Spelling, Writing and Numeracy. This was a fantastic achievement.

This data was reinforced by the results of our whole school testing at the end of 2019, which enables us to track student growth from year to year. In 2019 48% of students in Year 3-6 experienced growth above what is expected within a year's worth of schooling in Mathematics and an amazing 92% of students in Year 3-6 experienced more than a year's worth of growth in reading. A fantastic effort, which is a testament to the hard work of our students and the dedication and diligence of our teaching and support staff. I look forward to continuing this journey throughout 2020 and building upon the great work that we already do.
