St Joseph Catholic School

  • At St Joseph Elementary School, we are a faith partner together with the parish, the clergy and the parents, charged with the formation and education of the whole child.
  • We form students spiritually by giving them opportunities to develop a mature faith as witnessed by regular worship, moral decision-making and service out-reach; students academically by assisting them in mastering basic skills, developing the ability to reason and providing a responsible environment that encourages creativity; and students socially by engaging them in experiences which foster self-direction, leadership and team-building skills, which are developed in the classroom, on the fields of competition and within the parish.
