St Joseph’s Primary School, Wingham, is a learning community that seeks to make a positive impact on society through the work we do with students, quality teaching and a vision of life centred on Jesus.
Respect for self and others means valuing people and property. It requires us to be tolerant, accept individual differences and reject harassment and bullying in any form. It also means students must respect the right of teachers to teach and students to learn.
Encompasses fairness, equity, honesty and a commitment to upholding that which is right - which are our ‘Touchstone Values’. The school will seek to be just in all its dealings.
We want to nurture personal resilience and the development of positive social skills. The school plays a vital role in promoting the intellectual, physical, social, emotional, moral, and aesthetic development and well-being of our students. Therefore, the school supports students to develop skills and understanding to keep themselves and others safe, as well as actively developing a safe school environment.
We want our students to become successful learners and confident and creative individuals. This demands high quality instruction, a quality learning environment, effective models of leadership and partnerships with parents.
We acknowledge our responsibility to be stewards of our earth and all of God's creation. Sustainability of resources means responsible management, care of the environment and a system of operation that is designed to enhance the future wellbeing of the planet.
At St Joseph’s Wingham students will be engaged and confident learners working flexibly to firstly meet and then extend upon their own levels of learning.
