Greetings to everybody. Welcome to the St Joseph’s School, New Plymouth Website.

St Joseph’s is a Contributing State Integrated (Catholic) Primary School catering for
children from new entrants to year six. We are a very well resourced school that
provides a broad and rich curriculum built around Christian living, creativity and
knowledge and skills essential for the future. These skills are embedded in the school

emphasis is given to achievement in the core learning areas of literacy and numeracy
as well as developing and fostering an appreciation of the arts, digital and scientific
skills, social, outdoor and leisure skills.

St Joseph’s School continues to benefit from strong community support. Children and
staff feel a strong sense of belonging and we enjoy an ongoing association with past
and present students and families.

We encourage you to explore our website and we look forward to hearing from you and
meeting you in the future.
