Principal's message

We warmly welcome your interest in the engaging, supportive, caring community that is St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, situated within the country town of Manildra in regional NSW.  

St Joseph’s is a co-educational, Kindergarten to Year 6 Catholic school within the Bathurst Diocese. Since 1928 our school has proudly existed and supported the people of Manildra, educating many generations of local families. 

Upon initial engagement with our school community, it is clear we value relationships with others. It is the very nature of Catholic education; infused with values of hope, justice and the inherent dignity of each person, that provides the framework for our students to develop respect for others, whilst being encouraged and challenged to live out our Gospel values.

Our excellent and committed staff, engaging environment that energises learners, and personalised learning programs for all students, sit within the unique culture our small school can offer. We continue to be proud of the quality teaching and learning experiences we provide to fulfil the academic potential of every student. 

At St Joseph’s we encourage you to feel the embrace we extend to new members and families of our school. Feel the values we place our relationships with families, the parish and the Manildra community. Feel encouraged to support us in providing the best journey possible for your children as they progress through the  years of primary school.

We hope you will find elements of ‘learning, faith, care, environment, opportunity and community’ within this website. May this insight into a school in which we are proud be helpful in making your decision to choose an education for your child at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Manildra.
