Excitement is building with only a few weeks until the St Joseph’s School’s Fete and 140 year celebrations.

Each year, Book Week is a highlight at St Joseph’s. It gives teachers, students and families the opportunity to acknowledge, celebrate and become immersed in the great wealth of Australian children’s literature. It is also a time to appreciate the gift of reading for relaxation, entertainment, broadening perspectives and providing opportunities for learning, laughing and sharing.
Science Week gives students the opportunity to investigate various avenues of the sciences outside of their normal lessons, and witness how daily activities can be explored through scientific processes.
