St Joseph's Catholic School, Cloncurry offers a high quality curriculum and schooling experience for students from Prep to Year 9. The school was founded in October 1909, some months after Mother Mary MacKillop decided to send a community of her Sisters of St Joseph to the town. In the early years, schooling took place in the presbytery, in a shed and in the church until a school was opened in 1913. Today we are still influenced by the life and work of St Mary MacKillop and the Josephite Sisters as we endeavour to “Never see a need without doing something about it”.
