Curriculum

We want our Yr 8 leavers to be equipped and prepared to face the challenges of high school and the world beyond.  We want them to reach for the stars and shine as they live out our school vision in all that they do.

Our school curriculum focuses on engaging all children in their learning through our school vision to 'Reach for the Stars as Lifelong Learners in the Catholic Faith'.

At St Joseph's this means:

  • Keep aiming higher and higher
  • Don't just complete it - do it well
  • High expectations/high standards
  • Strive for excellence
  • Recognise and celebrate everyone's strengths
  • Never give up

Lifelong Learners

  • Infinite enthusiasm to explore, discover, to know
  • Learn to become independent
  • We are always learning even as adults
  • Inspire enthusiasm and offer new learning experiences
  • Open to change and willing to take on new challenges
  • Accept that we learn through our mistakes and as risk takers
