St Joseph's School has a small population and is a quality we are value. The school believes that our smaller community will benefit your child in may ways, including greater access to opportunities and support in all areas. The intimate family nature of our school enables us to know each child and their families. This allows the school to prepare your child with the individual skills required to face the world of tomorrow. St Joseph's School aims to do this by creating a welcoming environment based on acceptance and trust.

We believe that all children have the right to be heard and respected, and to feel a sense of belonging to their family, school and community, which sets them up to be successful learners. Catholic philosophy is the foundation of all of our policies and programs, providing students with opportunities to develop spiritually, emotionally, socially, physically and academically.

The Staff of St Joseph's is passionate and enthusiastic, and each member brings to the community a diverse wealth of experiences. They are hard working, dedicated and exceptionally professional people who give generously of their time and expertise to ensure all students experience success.
