St Joseph's offers the very latest resources and modern learning facilities to meet the needs of today's students
St Joseph’s Primary Schofields is a K-6 primary Catholic school set in beautiful surroundings. We focus on providing a holistic education that responds to the needs of 21st century learners. We believe that it is together we can make a difference in our school, society and world.
Creatively, collaboration and excellence are be nurtured in out contemporary and purpose built learning and recreational spaces. Based on leading educational research and the best of today's technologies, students will learn how to think critically and creatively, communicate effectively and work collaboratively within a learning environment that features two new buildings which include state of the art science and technology classrooms.
Imagine the possibilities!
Our brand new classrooms see Year 5 students and Kindergarten located close by to support the school’s buddy program.
There are two 2 storey buildings and one 3 storey building clustered around a central atrium space. Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 learning takes place on the ground floor. Year 5 and 6 are at the top of the two storey buildings and Years 3 and 4 fill the top floors of the two storey building. There is lift to access the upper floors as well as several staircases.
- modern air-conditioned classrooms
- a number of contemporary and flexible learning spaces
- a library and resource centre
- spacious, green play areas
- 21st century technology and resources
- a recycled water initiative, providing water for school ovals, gardens and toilets.
Each building has
- an indoor with brand new furniture and technology
- dedicated spaces for art and science will be in each learning space
- younger years will have a practical space for play and older grades for investigative learning
- an opening to the outdoor learning space with large undercover spaces.
Each learning area has
- 2 classes contained within it (just like the cottages)
- larger space than the cottages they are replacing.
The younger grades open to green learning spaces with sandpit, active play areas and gardens.
For the older children we can finally offer a basketball court, have areas set aside for playtime activities such as a Lego wall, stages for performances and so much more.
Joining the three buildings will be a giant atrium space both symbolising the unity of our community and practically allowing us to gather together around a symbol of our Catholic faith.
This space will also allow active play in all weather.
A third new building will be constructed for the 2021 school year. This will include a community cafe, an important meeting place for parents and carers to gather.
