The motto of the school is “Act Justly”. Justice is a value we all seek, not only in society today, but in our own lives and our own hearts. Mission is the underlying or fundamental theme of the gospel. We share in Christ’s mission to bring good news to the poor, sight to the blind, and freedom to captives. Through this sharing in the mission of Christ we are empowered to act justly. This liberates us to free the world from all that hinders, oppresses or destroys.
In the way of Jesus, St Joseph’s Catholic High School aspires to respect and celebrate the dignity of all. Inspired by the life of St Joseph, the school promotes a culture of faith, justice and service. Working in partnership with parish, staff, students, parents and the wider community, St Joseph’s aims to foster the development of spiritual, physical, intellectual and emotional growth so that each member, using their God-given talents, reaches their potential.
