Message from the Principal

St Joseph's Tobruk  Memorial School is a co-educational, Catholic primary school (Prep-Year 6) with an enrolment of around 350 students. Our community celebrates 7 core values based on the charisms of our co-founders (Mary MacKillop, St Joseph and The Rats of Tobruk): dignity, compassion, courage & resilience, justice camaraderie, reconciliation, and trust and faith in God. Integrating these themes and core values into every facet of school life is both a challenge and a privilege for every member of the St Joseph's community. The spirit of Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop infiltrates our hearts and permeates through the culture of our school. We are fortunate to have a Sister of St Joseph working at our school in the role of Pastoral Worker. A code of conduct based on our Respect Rules (respect for self, others, environment, and learning) applies to all members of the St Joseph's community. Positive Behaviour 4 Learning and bullying prevention programs assist in creating a safe, friendly and supportive school environment. We strive for excellence in an engaging curriculum preparing children to become active participants and life-long learners in a rapidly changing world. Co-curricular activities such as camps for Year 5 and 6, instrumental program, school band, photography, choir, chess and interschool sport provide opportunities for further quality educational outcomes. At St Joseph's Tobruk Memorial School, we encourage families to continue to be actively involved in their children's education through purposeful partnerships with their children's teachers and the wider school community.

Please contact us, or drop in and say Hi.
