News & Events
On Monday August 20, students and teachers, transformed themselves into real-life versions of their favourite book characters as part of their Book Week celebrations.
At the annual parade, held in the school’s gym, there was much excitement as family and friends came to watch each grade show off their ideas and creative costumes. Our Grade 5/6 students showed their amazing skills in the kitchen for our Bake a Book display, which produced some fantastic entries that the whole school were able to marvel at.
Book Week is an anticipated highlight of the school year. It is a great opportunity to focus on the importance of books and why we all love reading. The theme for the 2018 is Find Your Treasure, and during this week, St Joseph’s students have been immersing themselves
in reading and activities that support this.

During this term all grades have been participating in the Footsteps Program, which is adance program where we learn many dance styles. All students have participated and they have loved the experience. We have learnt 5 dances and we will choose 2 of these to dance at the performance this Wednesday.

The Grade 6 students have begun preparing their cars for the Fantastic Racers at Wonthaggi Secondary College towards the end of this term. We are making cars out of balsa wood and powering them with batteries. We can enter different categories such as fastest car, straightest car and best decorated car. We are having a load of fun and are looking forward to race day.
During Term 3 we have learned about how Jesus taught lessons to his followers by teaching in parables. We are also learning about the ways different organisations around the world help people suffering from malnutrition, lack of sanitation and illiteracy.

Students have begun exploring the topic of location and learning many new vocabulary words such as beneath, behind, above and beside. Next week we are going to be learning about mass, heavy and light and exploring what items in our rooms sink and what items float.
