Undertaking a school leadership position at St Joseph’s is no empty promise. Leaders don’t just set an example, their goal is to inspire others and make a difference in the school and wider community.

For the past three terms the Year 10 ITAD students have been busy working on their Rotary Craftsperson project. Students had to plan, design and create a project from either wood or metal. There were some very ambitious projects and competition was fierce, but the St Joseph’s students were up to the task. Projects ranged from outdoor seating to go-carts and coffee tables to toolboxes.
It is an inevitable that the beginning of term 4 signals in a student's mind a time think of what lies beyond the work, exams and schedules, to approaching holidays and an upcoming year. St Joseph’s has embraced this train of thought giving students from Year 11 and 12 a chance to take part in several presentation’s this term that inform and illustrate just how broad the spectrum of choices can be.
