Learning and Teaching


Each child at St Joseph's is entitled to thrive in a vibrant learning community and to develop as an engaged, independent and successful learning; as outlined in our Vision statement.

Learning contributes to developing literate and knowledgable memebers of our society. Contemporary learning supports, enables and engages the learning to contribute positively to their world.

St Joseph's offers a contemporary approach to teaching and learning, with effective learning and teaching practices. Such practices enable students who are engaged in deep learning, through Faith Based Inquiry, where students seek truth, through critically interpreting today's world in light of Catholic tradition. Working collaboratively with others, students embrace differences by seeking out a multiplicity of voices, ideas and practices. Students flourish through embracing challenges, being versatile, persevering and taking risks.

Students at St Joseph's are engaged in deep encounters between tradition and contemporary life. They learn to form relationships by participating in meaningful dialogue with teachers and peers. Students learn how to make a difference through being active agents of positive change, building empathy with others and being responsible, connected citizens both locally and globally. In creating authentic learning partnerships with families and our wider community, students will further develop and apply skills in order to engage critically and effectively in a multi-modal world.
