St Joseph’s College is a Catholic 7-12 high school operated by St Joseph’s Parish, Tweed Heads, assisted by the Lismore Diocese Catholic Education Office.
SJC works closely with its parents and the community to fulfill the important role of educating the youth of the Tweed Heads region. Our motto, ‘Peace through Justice’ is modified from Pope Pius XII’s motto ‘Opus Justitiae Pax’ – The work of justice is peace. This original motto was taken up in 1939 at the outbreak of World War II. The motto transcends the circumstances of those times to inspire each of us through significant effort in our personal lives, to establish community at local and international levels. The dove of peace reinforces this message.
CONGRATULATIONS to Year 12 Drama who received an ONSTAGE nomination for an exemplar Group Performance in their recent HSC Exam. Well done team!
“R U OK?” Day 2019
Today we celebrate “R U OK?” Our national day of action dedicated to reminding everyone to ask, “Are you OK?” and to remember every day of the year to support people who may be struggling with life’s ups and downs.
This year in the build-up to R U OK? Day we’re encouraging everyone to Trust the Signs, Trust your Gut & Ask R U OK?
This day spreads the important message of suicide prevention. Students and staff were greeted at school with a friendly R U OK? and a yellow lollipop
The 30th of August is Jersey Day at SJC. Students and teachers wore sports jerseys as a way of raising awareness of the importance of being an organ donor. We also had some pancakes ready for breakfast as the students arrived this morning.
Well done to Taylah Woodward from Year 12 who initiated the idea to bring to SJC. We finished off the day with a few Tug of wars at lunchtime
JERSEY DAY is all about promoting awareness of The Organ and Tissue Authority and the DONATE LIFE network.
