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.

PROFESSIONAL LEARNING COMMUNITY
During Catholic Education week, our Teaching team was nominated and were Finalists for the Toowoomba Catholic Schools Excellence Awards for Teaching & Learning: Professional Learning Community category. Our school was nominated as a joint nomination with St Maria Goretti, Inglewood for our work in the Professional Learning Community space. Both school communities were nominated by Senior Education Leader: Suzanne Cavanagh. The nomination is as follows:

Millmerran and Inglewood were identified as schools needing focused support in teaching and learning 4 years ago. Since then they have separately invested in establishing consistent approaches to teaching and learning focusing on using high yield strategies in the classrooms. Once this was achieved the Principals recognised that since both schools had small classroom teacher numbers, it would be beneficial to network across the two schools and establish a Professional Learning Community that allowed a broader conversation and perspective. The schools take turns to host a PLC once a month and have successfully investigated the educative focus of Formative Assessment as well as other high yield strategies. Both Principals have maintained and supported their staff in building collective efficacy in better understanding contemporary education.

This is great recognition for our school and Inglewood for the time and commitment we have put into establishing our Learning Community over the past couple of years. We are seeing the success of this work paying off with increased professional conversations on student achievement, and most classes achieving in our benchmark goals for reading 6 months ahead of schedule.
