What Our Families Say About Our School

“As a non-Catholic family coming into St Joseph’s, we were unsure what to expect from a Catholic school. We have been so pleased with our choice to send our children to St Joseph’s, and been thoroughly impressed with the positive and caring culture that the school provides. We feel our children have thrived at St Jo’s, with their all-encompassing approach to teaching the children as a whole, which includes their physical, spiritual, intellectual, emotional and social selves. The teaching style is both supportive and allows for extension, according to the abilities of each of our children. We especially love the way the children of all ages look out for one another, which is promoted by the teaching of values such as respect, honesty and compassion and the Big buddy system. As a family we have always been made to feel comfortable in the catholic school environment and have been welcomed into the community and supported and looked after as every family is”. Pip Souness

"You have a lovely school there and it looks to me like there is a very caring attitude amongst the pupils. This was evident to me whilst in the playground each morning where I watched the pre-school time morning football 'soccer' match. No matter the ability, size , age or sex, anyone that wanted to play was welcomed, given a side and joined in. Everyone looked out for each other." Andrew Worrall

"We feel very privileged that our children have engaged in St Joseph's culture and focus of being kind and looking after others. This was proven recently when we were overseas. We had complete strangers (not just the once but several times) thanking us for our children who had gone out of their way to help other younger children, children upset, or just afraid of doing an activity. Our children were kind, supportive and encouraging. As parents we felt very proud and wanted to thank St Joseph's as we feel they have contributed significantly to moulding our children’s characters. Thank you."  Cindy & Mike Bonn
