St. Joseph's School History
St. Joseph's School Narrandera is proud of its tradition. 1890 heralded the arrival of the Sisters of St. Joseph in Narrandera and they remained in the school until 2000. The Sisters still maintain a presence in the Parish and community. The school was built on its current site in 1899 and over the years additions and improvements have been made in the form of extra primary classrooms (1958), infants classrooms (1965), hall (1972), canteen (2001), refurbished primary classrooms and administration area (2003), new 'state of the art' infants classes and administration area (2011).
Throughout its history the school has adapted to meet the needs of its students and the community. Academically the Sisters and school were justly proud of the achievements of many of the students. Many fine citizens received their basic education at St Joseph's Narrandera and from its earliest years the school can boast of ex-students who excelled in the areas of sport, the arts, community service and commercial enterprise. Recent times have seen the development of innovative programs that have proven highly successful.
