very warm welcome to our website. Thanks for visiting!!!
May I commend these pages and our
school to you.
St Joseph’s is a small K-6
Catholic systemic school which is part of the Diocese of Maitland
Newcastle. It services the town of Bulahdelah and surrounding communities
including Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest.
Bulahdelah (in local Aboriginal,
Worimi language meaning ‘meeting of waters’) is located
in the beautiful Myall/Great Lakes area, about two hours north of
Newcastle and only forty minutes from Forster and Hawks Nest.
The school was founded in 1955
by the Sisters of St Joseph who remain part of its proud tradition.
It is an integral part of St Brigid’s Parish and is active
in the Bulahdelah community.
A recent capital works programme
has seen the school largely rebuilt and our students and staff now
enjoy the comforts of a modern and well resourced teaching environment
surrounded by a pleasant rural outlook.
More importantly our school is
a small and intimate family-like place built on a genuine care and
compassion for its students and a religious place where everyone
can experience a living faith centred on the person and message
We strive for excellence by giving students opportunities to use
their gifts and reach their potential through academic, sporting
and cultural activities.
I encourage you to contact us if
you require any further information. We would love to hear from
With best wishes,
