Bec Fahey 

Principal 

I have been an educator for 16 years and feel very blessed to have chosen this career. I have been at St Joseph's for 10 years, beginning as a classroom teacher then moving into leadership as REC and APRIM before moving into the Principal role in 2018. 

I am very passionate about all children having the right to an education and being given the opportunities to push themselves and achieve their goals. 

I have a deep and strong connection to St Mary MacKillop and all that she aspired to in her passion and committment to educating children and starting Catholic Education in South Australia. I continue to learn from Mary and her wisdom guides me in my leadership of St Joseph's and my involvement in Catholic Education. 

I feel truly blessed and privelidged to be in this role,  to work with the most passionate and committed staff, to educate the wonderful children that walk through the school doors each and every day, and to support and walk alongside parents and families as they bring their children up in this ever changing world.

Assistant Principal - Religious Identity & Mission / R/1 Teacher 

I joined the community of St Joseph’s in 2016 and have been an educator for 10 years. I have a passion for Junior Primary teaching and love watching our students grow and develop, especially in their first years of school. I feel very lucky that I get to spend each and every day in a school filled with children that bring so much joy and laughter into my life.

I also have the pleasure of leading our school in the Religious domain, as first the REC in 2019 and now the APRIM. I have a strong commitment to the Catholic faith and believe that all children are made in the image and likeness of God. I endeavour to lead and support staff in providing a contemporary approach to teaching and learning, as well as building a vibrant faith filled community at St Joseph’s. I feel privileged to be a part of the leadership team at St Joseph’s, and continually work closely with colleagues to ensure the best outcomes for all students in our care.

I feel very privileged to be a part of the supportive and welcoming Saint Joseph's School Community. I enjoy providing young people with opportunities to thrive as a whole person. I am passionate about collaborating with students to be people who care for God's creation and implementing ways we can nurture and implement these practises in our school. I have found a love of data and using this information to help students develop their own learning goals, as well as supporting teachers to utilise this. I strive to support the growth of students in all areas of their lives. I feel very blessed to be surrounded by young people every day who are excited by learning and their futures.

I feel very grateful to have been able to spend the past 14 years teaching at St Joseph’s School, Peterborough. Throughout my teaching career I have been fortunate enough to work in a range of different roles from teaching R-7, Physical Education/Health, Science, Maths and Playgroup. I am currently furthering my study in Catholic Education through completing my Graduate Certificate in Religious Education. With my dual roles as a class teacher and specialist Physical Education teacher I have the unique opportunity to personally engage with all students and families from Reception to Year 7.

2/3/4 Teacher & Arts Teacher 

I am blessed to be in my third year of teaching at St Joseph’s. I embrace the opportunities before me as a Primary School Educator in a very special, authentic, and inclusive learning community. Through communication, active listening, mutual respect and as much laughter as possible, I strive to build trust­ing rela­tion­ships with our students to enhance their sense of confidence, belong­ing and individuality.  

 

My goal is to educate the whole person, in an environment that honours the sacred dignity of each child and their endless potential. We celebrate kindness, diversity and empathy in our classroom, where children are encouraged to wonder and explore. Together with children’s families, I am privileged to share in the development of skills, knowledge and capabilities that will be with each child long after their school days.

Librarian & Administration 

I am fortunate to have been associated with the St Joseph’s school community for 15 years as the Librarian/ Administration support officer and as a parent of three graduated children. I have over 30 years of experience within varied library services. 

It is with enthusiasm that I promote the importance of reading for pleasure and research and am devoted to nurturing the benefits of reading within literacy across all year levels.

Within my role as Librarian I advocate for programmes such as the Premiers Reading Challenge, which our school can boast with pride over 95% participating since its inception in 2004. I love my involvement with this programme seeing the pride as students complete the challenge from year to year, engaging in their learning through the pleasure of reading.

One of my other personal interests is singing and I am privileged to lead the school choir. It is a pleasure to be part of the students sharing their talents at concerts, aged care facilities, community groups and community functions.

I look forward to being an integral part of a dynamic school community as we move onto new initiatives and areas of learning.

Brooklyn Virgens 

Education Support Officer & Playgroup Leader 

Saint Joseph's School Peterborough holds a special place in my heart. I grew up in this community, having the great privilege to attend St Joseph's for my primary years of schooling, and now having the honour to return to pursue my career in education. I thoroughly enjoy being part of such an enthusiastic, positive and welcoming school community. I value learning from my colleagues, and from experiences with children within the school.

The best part about my role is assisting and seeing individual student growth and forming crucial and fostering relationships with each individual. I strongly believe in not just nurturing who the child will become tomorrow but nurturing the child for who they are today.
