We value the size of our school as we feel it enables people to know one another well. St Joseph’s is small in size, but we are mighty in spirit!
Our motto is 'Serving with Faith and Love'.
Throughout the school community there is a strong sense of family, warmth, caring and spirituality. Gospel values are at the centre of the life of our school family and our curriculum. Our commitment to the Gospel values has meant that we care for those in need. This is part of our Josephite tradition, and the St Joseph’s Sisters who first started our school in 1884. Their motto which we continue is ‘Never see a need without doing something about it'.
Come and delight in the St Joseph’s spirit and again welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic School!
