Welcome to St Joseph’s Alstonville. At this school we provide a diverse environment in which children are encouraged to participate, discover their potential and meet challenges. All staff and parents work together in partnership to ensure our school can provide a contemporary learning journey for your child.
What is a contemporary learning journey?
Traditional classrooms struggle to meet the needs of students today.Students require flexible and adaptive environments with work tailored for their specific needs. The use of data to inform teaching is crucial as is the use of timely intervention to support students. All of this is achieved through the staff working in collaborative professional learning teams to support the students. At St Joseph’s Alstonville we want to discover the potential within each of us. In addition, we strive to maintain a caring community:
where individuals are valued for their unique gifts and for the contributions they make.
where children and adults alike are free to express their views, entitled to feel safe and have fun into the bargain.
where many opportunities are offered.
Learning is the key focus at this school. Your child’s success at school, and happiness while here, are our core businesses. These core businesses, your child’s success and happiness, are approached in a spirit of partnership between home and school. Together we make a difference.
As Principal of St Joseph’s Alstonville I know you will enjoy being part of this community. I am available at any time to discuss questions you may have about starting out on the school journey with your child. We can organise a time to meet and show you our terrific school.
