Our Mission Statement
St. Joseph's Catholic School exists in partnership with family and parishes to provide an education that strives to fulfill each child's potential academically, spiritually, morally, socially, and emotionally, with Christ as its centre.
We express this by:
Building skills for life with enjoyment and high expectations.
Creating a happy, secure and caring place to learn.
Fostering respect between ourselves and the world we live in.
Teaching the Catholic faith through example and prayer.
‘Love one another as I have loved you’
St. Joseph's aim is to teach and lead the children, within the school community, to a knowledge and practice of the love of God and neighbour, in their development as Catholics, and to become integrated into Parish life.
Other aims are...
i) The development of the child, intellectually, physically, emotionally and aesthetically.
ii) To develop "self-awareness" and "self-esteem" leading to self-confidence and motivation.
iii) To encourage the ability to function as a contributing member of co-operative groups and the local community.
iv) To fulfil its role in the partnership of school, parents and parish in the education of every child.
v) To provide for every child a broad, balanced curriculum according to his/her needs and abilities.
