Our Mission

St Joseph's, as part of the Tara Parish Community of Faith, was founded on the traditions of Mary Mackillop and established by the sisters of St. Joseph in 1965.
We endeavour to create a Catholic Christian community, which is centred on living gospel values, faith service and trust in a loving god. We strive to provide this to ALL through;
  • Engendering a sense of respect, love and unity.
  • Development of self-worth, self-discipline and responsibility.
  • Understanding the message of Jesus.
  • Fostering a sense of justice, compassion, tolerance, pride and acceptance within a supportive community.
  • Providing a Holostic education where individuals learn to recognise and achieve their potential and develop an intrinsic desire to learn.
  • Being inclusive of all, and welcoming of difference and those with special needs.
  • Building a happy environment where children experience openness, support and care.
  • Working in partnership with parents and carers, the first educators.
