Penshurst – St Joseph’s Primary School
Located in south-west Victoria, St Joseph's Catholic Primary School has an enrolment of approximately 30 children and caters for children who reside in and around the small town of Penshurst.
We are a faith community, playing an important role in the lives of its students as they develop their relationship with their God and with each other. Our faith underpins our vision which allows children to grow spiritually, academically, socially and emotionally within a framework of leadership and Christianity, with a respect for individuality and a sense of belonging.
At St Joseph's our children feel safe and secure within a framework of established boundaries and routines, creating a peaceful and just atmosphere for all. The students are helped to develop an awareness of their rights and responsibilities, along with the consequences of their actions on themselves and others.
Our community embraces the many talents of all members, providing programs that are stimulating and progressive. St Joseph's is a small rural school with a great capacity for assisting students to be empowered to grow into strong and independent learners within a warm, loving environment, well prepared for the 21st Century.
