When a child enrols at St Joseph’s their family joins a school with a very long and proud Mercy tradition.

What do we stand for? The strengthening of faith, the development of pride and the seeking of excellence.

How do we achieve this? Through the strong Mercy traditions.

Why is all this important to us? We aspire to live the school motto ‘to love and to serve as God has shown us through Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the saints that have followed them.

Welcome to the SJS family!
