St Joseph's College is a welcoming and hope-filled school that promotes excellence and equity, so that all students can become confident and creative learners. Our beautiful historic buildings hold a learning community that is courageous in implementing learning programs that engage and excite twentieth-century learners! To put it simply...we don't rest on our laurels!
Steeped in our Catholic and Brigidine heritage, we have provided a quality education and a vibrant educational community for the families of northern Victoria and southern New South Wales since 1886.
Our College motto "Strength and Kindliness" is inherited from Bishop Daniel Delany of Kildare (Ireland), who founded the order of the Sisters of Saint Brigid in 1807. Saint Brigid, who lived in Ireland in the fifth century, was a woman of great initiative and faith, and her sense of compassion, social justice and generosity were legendary. Inspired by her life, we are compelled to:
Be faithful to our Catholic heritage
Welcome all people, especially the most vulnerable
Celebrate all that is good with joy and gratitude
Engender a love of learning, hope and a sense of purpose
Image and practise justice and service
It's my privilege to serve this great school as its Principal, and along with my Leadership Team, the staff and students, I am proud to share our learning journey with you through this website.
