Student Well-Being


A biennial visit from the Life Education Van is an integral part of St Joseph's health curriculum.

Life Education is the largest non-government provider of drug and health education to children and young people, Australia wide.  Their mission is to empower the young to make the best choices for a safe life, through their leading drug and health education programs.  Children are motivated, encouraged and empowered to exercise real choice and to make informed healthy lifestyle decisions.

More specifically, the Life Education Program assists children to achieve the following outcomes:

  • acquire age appropriate knowledge to support informed health choices
  • develop and practise skills and strategies to act upon individual decisions
  • recognise the values and attitudes that may influence lifestyle choice and behaviour


St Joseph's offers a counselling service one day per week.  Our counsellor is a part of the Centacare counselling project, in partnership with CESA and provides a wide range of support to children and families.
