St Joseph's Primary School in 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.

St Joseph's caters for children from Prep to Year 7. The current level of student enrolments allows for close interaction between parents, students and staff. Our staff endeavours to foster a climate of meaningful learning, love, security and personal interest in each student.

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

ST JOSEPH'S DAY
Last Wednesday we celebrated an important day in our school year – St Joseph’s Day. Year 5/6/7 led the school in a very prayerful and reflective liturgy. The liturgy culminated with a reflection of the virtues of St Joseph: Honesty, Reliability, Justice, Patience, Loyalty, Hardworking, Humility, Simplicity and Faithfulness. These nine virtues along with the four values of St Mary MacKillop provide guidance to all members of St Joseph’s Millmerran by showing us ways in which we can live more fully in our lives. On conclusion of the liturgy, I challenged and encouraged the students to take the time to think about one of the virtues that spoke most to them and to try and live it more throughout the year.

DROUGHT FUNDRAISER
Well done to the Year 5/6/7 class for organising a very successful Drought Relief Fundraiser. Thanks to the very generous students, staff and families who donated $442.05 to the Aussie Helpers Fund.

HARMONY DAY
Harmony Day celebrations were held at the school on Thursday 20th and were a wonderful success. The students embraced Harmony Day and were involved in a number of activities such as yoga, cultural dancing, learning a song in a different language, indigenous games and activities that promoted the theme of the day ‘everybody belongs’. The celebrations concluded with a delicious feast of traditional dishes from the Philippines and Tanzania. A big thank you to the wonderful cooks, especially Mrs Dichosa for preparing the feast and serving it up to the students and staff.

GRANDPARENTS DAY
This term in History the Prep/Ones and the One/Twos have being learning all about the past, present and future. They have explored life in the past and how it has changed. In order to learn firsthand about life in the past they interviewed their grandparents or parents and played some olden day games at the Grandparents Day, which was held on Tuesday 25th. A wonderful morning was had by all and it was great to see so many parents and grandparents join in the celebrations. Click here for more photos......
