Our Community

At St Joseph’s school, we work in partnership with families to provide a safe, nurturing environment where all children are able to access all areas of the curriculum and the development of interpersonal skills to equip them to thrive in all aspects of their growth and development.

An important aspect of this growth and development is the religious/spiritual dimension. We are a community that has God at the centre and we come together often to give praise and thanks to God, to reflect on the life and mission of Jesus, and to seek to live out of a gospel value approach to life. We have a strong focus on social justice as a way of valuing outreach to those in greater need. Staff, students and parents are supported in developing an awareness of our responsibility to make good use of the gifts and talents of each person in our community and to do this in such a way that, individually and collectively, we can make a real difference to our world.

In all of these areas, families are encouraged to come along and become involved in the many dimensions of school life.
