Vision, Values, Purpose



Trust In God, Pride In Self, Dignity Of All

At St Joseph’s, we believe our motto holds true, where every human life is sacred and the dignity of the human person is the foundation of our intrinsic worth. We trust that God is our compass, keeping us on the right path. 

‘As a community, we have an obligation to ensure that every person lives with dignity and has sufficient opportunities for his or her integral development.’ (Pope Francis, Brothers and Sisters to Us [Fratelli Tutti], no. 118) 


Enabling students to achieve the fullness of life (John 10:10).

At St Joseph’s, we provide a quality faith-filled education enabling students to be inspired to grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually.


The St Joseph’s Primary School Community is called to be a partnership of home, school, and parish, working together to:

  • ensure Gospel values are embraced to enable our students to achieve the fullness of life (John 10:10), where they come to understand and uphold the dignity of all.
  • strive for excellence in education and for the provision of quality educational opportunities, which challenge and cater to each child’s individual abilities, needs, and learning styles.
  • value the rights and responsibilities of everyone within firm guidelines.


Our St Joseph’s community work in partnership to embody a Catholic environment that aims to: 

  • Create a joy-filled environment enriched by Gospel values and Catholic traditions
  • Generate a sense of community and compassion where we all experience belonging
  • Energise students with quality learning and teaching experiences

  • Personify gratitude and act for social justice by building awareness and empowering students to take action
  • Engage families to be active participants in the culture and community of school life
  • Celebrate the diversity of ability, background, and culture.  


At St Joseph’s, we actively promote the values of: 

  • Dignity and uniqueness of each person

  • Generosity, gratitude, and service
  • Respect for self, others, learning, and environment.
