History

Since our humble beginnings in 1913, St Joseph’s Primary has had a proud history of serving and educating students and families in Port Macquarie. St Joseph’s Primary was founded by the Sisters of St Joseph’s - the order founded by Australia’s first Saint - Mary MacKillop or Saint Mary of the Cross.

Today the school has grown to over 400 students, with over 40 staff who support the development and well-being of each child. St Joseph’s has modern and contemporary learning spaces and is extensively resourced through applied technologies.
