The House Structure

The St. Joseph’s College Echuca School Community is an incredibly welcoming, compassionate and supportive environment that values the development, achievement and contribution of all students and their families.

Each House consists of seven Learning Mentor Groups that include students from Years 7 -12. Students remain in their House and Learning Mentor Group throughout their journey at St. Joseph’s. Learning Mentor time is incredibly valuable, enabling the development of robust and powerful relationships between the Learning Mentor and students that support their development, learning and growth.

There are six Houses, each named after a patron linked to our Catholic, Brigidine tradition or our local Australian story. St. Brigid, St. Patrick, Caroline Chisholm, Pastor Sir Doug Nicholls, Mother Benedict Moore, Bishop Daniel Delany. Each house has adopted a charity for which the students raise money. Scroll over each patrons image to see the charity nominated for each house and the House colour.
