St Joachim's School opened in 1987 in the growing south-eastern suburb of Carrum Downs. It is a school that continues to flourish. In response to the growing enrolment, new extensions to the facilities were completed in 2002. From 2007 to 2010 the school underwent refurbishment of all classrooms ensuring students an effective, engaging and organised environment.


St Joachim's School is one of two primary schools in the parish community of Seaford. A close relationship exists with St Anne's School, Seaford, our partner parish primary school. It is at St Anne's that we gather to celebrate significant occasions such as the Sacraments of Confirmation, Reconciliation and Eucharist.

St Joachim's prides itself on endeavouring to cater to each individual child's needs and ensuring that the school has a positive learning environment in which students learn and play.


St Joachim's School is committed to providing a comprehensive and relevant curriculum. The school remains mindful of the ever-changing challenges and demands our students will need to confront in this fast-moving world. There is considerable emphasis placed on literacy and numeracy. Across the school a consistent approach to both literacy and numeracy is currently in operation.

The school is currently participating in a number of major projects: Positive Behaviours Project, National Partnerships Literacy Program, Children's Literacy Success Strategy (CLaSS), Middle Years Literacy and Success in Numeracy Education.

The school provides students with a range of extra-curricular activities that engage students in social participation activities that enhance their social and emotional skill development.
The Literacy & Numeracy Leaders work collaboratively with each level coordinator and their teams to ensure curriculum development, planning and engagement addresses individual need while attending to whole-school strategic planning.
