St Joseph's acknowledges parents and carers as each student’s most influential, primary and essential educators.

We are a family-friendly school. We believe that partnerships are best achieved through mutual and respectful communication, consultation and collaboration between family, school and the parish.

Families and parishioners are welcome to be involved in the religious and community life of our school and to attend school gatherings such as assemblies, information nights, concerts and liturgies and many other events throughout the school year.

We value our close working partnership with our parents and families. Here at St Joseph’s, we are always very appreciative of the work volunteer parents do for the school.
