Principal’s Message

“Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” (Nelson Mandela)

At St Joseph's College, we are proud of the dedicated educators and lay people who work with parents to help grow boys and girls who are ‘good Christians and good people’ equipped with faith, generosity and a willingness to make Jesus known and loved. This is achieved with a focus on the College motto, Peace through Justice.

We understand that we are shaping the lives of the young people in our care, seeking to create compassionate and capable leaders of the future. We aspire for our students to have strong minds and gentle hearts. Today, as was the case in 1993 when the College was founded, these qualities of compassion and leadership are equally as important. We challenge our young people to live lives where these values are lived, not just spoken. Our holistic educational environment offered to St Joseph's College students is more than just a classroom experience. We strive to meet the needs of all our students and their families by creating an environment that inspires spiritual, academic, cultural and sporting excellence.

At St Joseph's College, we recognise the difficult decisions parents need to make regarding whom they entrust the important responsibility of nurturing, growing, protecting and educating their children. One of the best ways for parents to choose the next step in the educational journey for their children is to experience the spiritual and learning environments and the energy within a school. In this spirit, we invite you to come and see what makes our College so special and to join me on a tour of our wonderful campus. You will see first-hand how we strive to work with parents and the community to build confident and capable young women and men of strong character with gentle hearts and a willingness to contribute positively to our church and our world.

Yours sincerely,

Ryan Campbell
