St Joseph’s school is led by a teaching staff who continue to maintain a deep commitment to professional development and personal learning. We have a comprehensive pastoral care agenda, including the provision of a pastoral care worker who is available to assist and support students, families and staff through the Seasons for Growth program. We seek to provide a high quality education in a safe, nurturing and inclusive environment.
