Principal’s message

Welcome to the St Joseph’s Catholic College website.

St Joseph’s College is a Co-educational Catholic College for students from Transition to Year 12.

We are a faith-filled learning community that specialises in the formation of young men and women and offers a liberating education based on innovative teaching within an inclusive community committed to Respect, Resilience, and Healthy relationships.

Importantly, in partnership with parents, St Joseph’s Catholic College aims to develop young men and women of faith, good character, strong intellect, generous spirit, and who will be able to move confidently into the world, and who will use their talents and gifts to lead and serve others.

St Joseph’s is a strong academic College with subjects, teaching styles and activities that ensure students are fully engaged and prepared for life’s challenges. While subjects and academic achievement are important within themselves, their true value lies in helping each student discover and develop their inner spirit and strength of character. Creating a moral compass for life is as important as what students are learning in the classroom. We believe success is not what they become, but who they become.

We are proud of our student’s successes and growth, whether in the Primary school or Secondary campus. Our appeal as a College rest in our strong Community spirit, the values we strive to maintain, our commitment to realising the potential of every child in our care, and in providing a balanced education that addresses the academic, social and emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of our pupil’s lives.

The mission statement of the College seeks students to develop strength in the areas of Respect, Relationship, and Resilience, our aim is for each and every student to be the best in all they do. We ask them to demonstrate outstanding levels of attendance, appearance, courtesy, respect, and work ethic throughout their time at the College.

As you browse through our website, I hope you can see the serene and beautiful environment that the College is set in, the atmosphere of Joy as our staff and students go about their day, as well as the beautiful surrounds that is Katherine. We welcome all new students and their parents to become part of our College community, and we commit supporting your child in their journey from childhood to young adults.

If you are moving to Katherine or its region, St Joseph’s Catholic College offers families an educational experience on the one site from Little Joeys (2.5 – 5 year olds) all the way to Year 12. You are always most welcome to ring the College to arrange a tour and find out more about us.
