Our Vision, Mission and Values in action
St Joseph’s school was founded by the Sisters of Mercy and we endeavour to continue the work of Catholic education through the lens of their charism, based on the example of Christ.
God sent his son, Jesus to live as a human and to show us the way of God’s Kingdom. All Christian values can be summed up in Jesus’ instruction:
“Love one another as I have loved you” Jn 13:34
Through living out our core values, the St Joseph’s community aims to answer the question of “How did Jesus love?”
The St Joseph’s School community has identified and claimed its core values; the St Joseph’s way of:
LEARNING, LOVE, COMMUNITY AND RESPECT
as defined by the life example given to us by Jesus Christ.
The ‘St Joseph’s Way’ provides us with a shared language around how we choose to be together. With the Mercy charism, it forms the basis of our school culture. We acknowledge and celebrate this each week at our assemblies with the ‘St Joseph’s Way’ awards.
