As part of a caring and vital Catholic community, students enjoy a rich and varied student life. We believe that the best opportunities for students come through providing quality education alongside pastoral care, performing arts, sports, and community involvement. In providing a safe and supportive school community, we strive to ensure that each student has the opportunity to realize goals and focus on their learning.
As a faith community, there is an emphasis on the total development of students.
The spiritual, social, academic and physical dimensions are underpinned by parish input, a rich liturgical tradition, community events such as St Joseph’s Day, social justice inspired whole school events and an extracurricular program which encourages full student engagement.
Opportunities abound in a diverse range of sports. Excellent facilities, including a fully equipped gymnasium, coincide with a rich sporting tradition that the school is proud of. The school has a strong reputation in the Performing Arts. A magnificent school choir and musical heritage attracts many students to the school. We have made a significant contribution in our previous involvement in the rock eisteddfod, and continue to develop students through the school musical. Likewise theatre, debating and public speaking opportunities are prevalent for students.
School Captains, Vice Captains, Sports Captains, Mission Councillors and Senior Councillors are appointed to perform certain duties and to provide leadership in the School. We are also proud to recognise student achievement within the school, rewarding outstanding students through our merit system.
