CORE VALUES

We aspire to live by the Core Values of Spirituality, Excellence, Compassion, Justice, Hospitality, Community and Service.

St Joseph’s College was founded in the Catholic Mercy Tradition by the Sisters of Mercy in 1906. The foundress of this order, Catherine McAuley, encouraged her congregations to work for all peoples, to educate, to care for the marginalised, and to make a difference for all in their communities.

In the Mercy Tradition, our Catholic College is committed to the development of the whole person. Through this commitment, the students strive for excellence: spiritually, academically, physically, emotionally and socially. They also develop a strong sense of community and a proud College spirit.

In the Mercy Tradition, the students grow and mature to take their places as responsible and active members of the community.

In the Mercy Tradition, the College provides opportunities for all students, while preparing them to fully engage in an ever-changing society.

In the Mercy Tradition, our commitment to Christ directs all thoughts, actions and will, according to the Gospel, with an emphasis on Christian love, hope, service, justice and forgiveness.



 
Spirituality
‘A spiritual person is able to judge the value of everything.’1 Corinthians 2:1 

As a place of hope and love, we nurture in the individual and the community a sense of being connected to God.

 
Excellence
‘And some seed fell into good soil and growing tall and strong, produced crop; and yielded thirty, sixty, even a hundredfold’ Matthew 1:8 

As a place of hope and love, we encourage and celebrate the development of excellence within the College community.


 
Compassion
‘…do to others whatever you would have them do to you…’ Matthew 7:12

As a place of hope and love, we compassionately seek to empathise with and respond to others in a spirit of Mercy.


 
Justice
‘Judge not and you will not be judged, do not condemn and you will not be condemned, forgive and you will be forgiven…’ Luke 6:37

As a place of hope and love, we promote justice, opportunity and equity through the awareness of the rights and responsibilities of all.

Hospitality
‘I was a stranger and you made me welcome’ Matthew 25:36

As a place of hope and love, hospitality is experienced within a welcoming and friendly environment.

Community
‘The whole group of believers was united, heart and soul…and they were all given great respect… None of their members was ever in want’

Acts 4:32-34 As a place of hope and love community means belonging, respect, support and commitment as partnerships develop.

Service   
‘I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.’ Matthew 25:35

As a place of hope and love service means seeking and providing a Mercy mission within and beyond the St Joseph’s College community.

Commitment to Democratic Principles
The College supports and promotes the principles and practices of Australian democracy, including a commitment to: elected Government; the rule of law; equal rights for all before the law; freedom of religion; freedom of speech and association; the values of openness and tolerance.
