St Joseph's Catholic School


Our School

St Joseph's Catholic School, Cloncurry is a catholic co-educational school located approximately 800km west of Townsville.  Our school offers a high quality curriculum and schooling experience for all children. Our enrolment for 2018 is approximately 170 students, including many Indigenous students.

Our School Motto is "Guided By God's Spirit" which was changed in early 2017 and this is embedded as part of the new School Logo.

Due to the transient nature of the local workforce in Cloncurry there is a need to provide structures which assist in catering for a variety of levels within each grade.
