Student Leadership

At St Joseph the Worker, we focus on developing our students’ leadership skills through leadership programs and practical leadership experiences. This approach recognises that students can be leaders across many different areas, and that leadership skills learnt in primary school can lay the foundations for future leadership opportunities.

Students in Years 5 /6 have additional opportunities to develop their leadership skills. The leadership roles that are available include School Captains, Sports House Captains, Student Representative Council (SRC), Liturgy/Justice Team, Library Team, Arts Team and Green Team.

 

School Committees

All parents are encouraged to become involved in the life of our school. One way is to serve on one of our committees.

Fund Raising Committee

The Fund Raising Committee is very active in their efforts to fund-raise, on behalf of the school. They contribute a great deal in time and energy.

The Fund Raising Committee is a very important facet of St Joseph the Worker School. Every parent is welcome to participate, or help in any way.

School Board

The School Board was established in December 1980. In brief, the role of the Board is to:

  • Operate and maintain the school buildings and surrounds as well as to plan for the future development of the school.
  • Provide support, advice and assistance to the Parish Priest, and the School Principal on school matters.
  • Foster and coordinate the work of school auxiliaries/committees, e.g. Fund Raising Committee and Out of School Care Committee, both of which operate under the auspices of the School Board’s control.

Membership of the Board is through an election process that occurs annually.

Parish Community

Our People, Our Community, Our Parish ‘Love one another as I have loved you’

Parish Vision

As a parish community we are ready to pattern our lives on Jesus Christ by being a welcoming community, open to the needs of one another.

We strive to be a community that values and supports education in faith and nurtures on-going faith formation.
We treasure the times when we celebrate the Sacraments, marking the significant moments in people’s lives and enabling them to have a sense of belonging and involvement in our faith community.

We strive to embody the gospel values of Jesus Christ that lead us into service, worship and celebration.

We pray that we can be a community exploring, recognising and responding to the signs of the times.
