ANZAC DAY SERVICE
On Monday the 25th April at the Anzac Day commemoration service at the new Canning Centenary ANZAC War Memorial, St Joseph’s was proudly represented by Taia Beil and Kale Bowen both in Year 6. Together with representatives from many other schools and organizations in the district, Taia and Kale placed a wreath on the Memorial. Attached to the wreath was a card which said:
“With deepest respect & gratitude, from St Joseph’s Primary School Community,
Queens Park …Lest We Forget”.
There was a very large crowd in attendance despite the heavy rain. Thank you Taia and Kale for volunteering for this and for being such respectful and dignified ambassadors of St Joseph’s. Thank you, as well, to Taia’s & Kale’s parents and grandparents for your support.
We at St Joseph's Primary School Queens Park are a faith based community which strives to recognise and respond to the image of Christ in us all, as we grow through work and prayer.
St Joseph’s Lily Pod
The rainbow seed (children) is nurtured in the pod (school) and grows in God’s Light.
The light was lit in the past, shines brightly in the present and expands into a future of infinite possibility.

“Jubilee Year of Mercy” – Saints in Mercy
The Psalm’s reflect everyone’s lives. InMisericordiae Vultus, Pope Francis dedicated some significant passages to the prayer of the Psalms. He wrote: “In a special way the Psalms bring to the fore the grandeur of his merciful action: ‘He forgives all your iniquity, he heals all your diseases, he redeems your life from the pit, he crowns you with steadfast love and mercy’ ... (ps 103:3-4). The mercy of God is not an abstract idea but a concrete reality with which he reveals his love as that of a father or a mother, moved to the very depths out of love for their child”. (The Psalms of Mercy – Pastoral Resources for Living the Jubilee)
