St. Joseph's Catholic College

A Welcome from the Executive Principal

Welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic College. When speaking to prospective parents I usually start with the question what do we want for our children? Our answer in St Joseph’s is that we want them to be happy and we want them to achieve to their full potential. Our aim is to provide a caring and supportive environment in which each individual can progress academically, spiritually and culturally.

Feast of St. Joseph the worker


The College has recently celebrated the feast of our patron on the 1st of May.  To mark this occasion students competed to be the recipients of St Joseph the Worker certificates.  The hardest worker or the one who produced the best piece of work in each lesson was selected by their subject teacher.  Teachers and students agree that students worked extra hard this May Day and it was difficult selecting the top candidate in a single lesson.  All the winners were honoured in a photograph under the St Joseph the Worker banner in the college’s main corridor.  Some students earned a certificate in more than one lesson.  It was particularly lovely to see both familiar and new faces, recognising that, with the right attitude, we all have the potential to use the talents we were given by God to do amazing things.
