Welcome to our website...

St Joseph's Wandal is a Catholic primary school, which offers quality Catholic education influenced by the charism of the Sisters of St Joseph and the Vincentian traditions. Staff, students and parents work in partnership to honour this tradition in our school community by being a community, which is centred on the ideal of service through love.

The school community consists of approximately 230 students drawn from suburban areas and nearby rural communities. The school is characterised by a welcoming, family friendly atmosphere. Well-developed academic, sporting and cultural programmes encourage the children to develop to the extent of their potential.Catholic Education - Diocese of Rockhampton

An active P&F Association and School Board provide assistance and support to the school community.

Community News

Our school is preparing and leading the 9.30am mass at St Joseph’s Cathedral this Sunday.  It would be lovely to have a large representation from our school community at this mass. Our students have been asked to read, present offerings, welcome parishioners and sing in the choir. Please join us for our first Youth Mass of the year.

ANZAC Day is next Wednesday, the 25th of April. We have accepted the invitation for the students of St Joseph’s Wandal to take part in the march and we encourage as many children as possible to represent our school at this important commemoration. Also this year we have registered our attendance at the dawn service and will be laying a wreath at this event. The Dawn Service starts promptly at 4.27am at the Rockhampton Botanic Gardens. Mr Hunt and Mrs Brightman have offered to represent our staff at the Dawn Service. Other staff members will supervise and march with the students.

We ask that the children gather in Alma Street BEHIND CITY CENTRE PLAZA near the museum by 9.30am.  We will be marching behind St Peter’s School. The March concludes at City Hall where a civic service will be held. At the conclusion of the parade, parents are asked to collect their children from William Street turning left (near Occasional Child Care Centre)

(A Note about Medals: Protocol states that medals belonging to family members or friends are to be worn on the right hand side).

The children are to wear their formal school uniform along with their blue school hat. Please ensure that your child has applied plenty of sunscreen before attending the march. Children must bring a water bottle.

We are always very proud of the large contingent of students who represent our school at this event and we look forward to a strong turnout once again. To avoid congestion, we ask that parents wait for us or meet us at the end of the march instead of asking to march with the school. Staff will march with students and our smaller children will be paired up with older ‘buddies.’

Next Tuesday a small group of Mini Vinnies students will visit Benevolent Aged Care to participate in the ANZAC Day ceremony by laying wreaths for the veterans and peace doves to the Legacy ladies. At the completion of the ANZAC ceremony students will then mingle with the residents and donate two blankets that were knitted over the course of last year. I would like to extend a particularly warm thanks to Mrs Durkin, Mrs Slater and Mrs Driscoll who so generously donate their time to make this donation possible for our Mini Vinnies students.
