St. Joseph’s Parish has instituted a bursary program in order to support parishioners who desire a Catholic education for their children, but who find it difficult to manage the cost of tuition. In order to ensure an equitable distribution of funds, families who would like assistance must make formal application.
We are Christian educators, growing in the Knowledge and love of God, sharing our God given gifts to provide an environment where children may develop a personal relationship with God, where they learn to live the moral values taught by Jesus Christ and where they acquire knowledge and skills necessary to be fulfilled, responsible and contributing members of the community.The Spirit of St. Joseph's School is one of Community. Everyone is working together; parents, teachers and students, supporting each other in the work and activities of School life.
St. Joseph's School strives to provide it's students with a positive learning environment in the light of the Catholic Faith. The Principal and staff endeavour to develop the School as a genuine Christian community with each member participating in an active manner for the common good of the whole community.
We, as a staff are convinced that there are specific, definable attitudes and behaviours of students, parents, and teachers which help distinguish superior schools.In order to help us attain the excellence for which we are constantly striving, we ask you to read and try to carry out what we consider as reasonable expectations. These are listed below for your convenience.
EXPECTATIONS FOR STUDENTS
We expect a display of good manners which reflect the proper home training we know our children receive. This includes, "Please", "Thank You", "Excuse Me", "I'm sorry", and other such expressions. Gestures, language and behaviour also show proper manners. Unacceptable vulgar language or gestures are never to be tolerated.
