CORE VALUES

A framework for behaviour

Our Core Values guide us, providing a framework for behaviours so that we are unified in our shared purpose.
They are the foundation upon which we continue to build meaningful relationships and foster a sense of community. Without them, we cannot hope to create and maintain an inviting, supportive and safe learning environment.
Although each could stand alone, we believe that together the Core Values define something unique to St Joseph’s. Like each of us, the individual Values have a part to play in the shared success of St Joseph’s.
At St Joseph’s College, 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.

Students also develop a strong sense of community and a proud College spirit in the Mercy Tradition. The College provides opportunities for all students, while preparing them to fully engage in an ever-changing society.
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.
