Testimonials

“I love going to school at St Joseph’s. I have met really nice people here. The learning is so much fun. I especially love the hands on science that we do in collaborative groups. One tradition I love at our school is that when we start in Kinder we plant a tree - we care for our tree and it grows as we grow”

- Ava Peel, student
