St. Joseph's Catholic College

A Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic College. When speaking to prospective parents I usually start with the question what do we want for our children? Our answer in St Joseph’s is that we want them to be happy and we want them to achieve to their full potential. Our aim is to provide a caring and supportive environment in which each individual can progress academically, spiritually and culturally.

Christmas Concert Postponed

Due to the adverse weather conditions we have taken the decision to postpone tonight’s Christmas Concert. It will now take place on Wednesday 3rd January at 6.30pm.

The students will still be rehearsing this afternoon as they will be doing a performance on Friday morning to Year 7s. However, the rehearsal times for this afternoon has changed. The new times for rehearsals will be 2.00 – 3.30pm. However, if you cannot collect your child until 4pm I will be here to supervise until that time.

 If you have purchased tickets for tonight’s performance you can either:

  • Defer your ticket for the 3rd January

 Or alternatively,

  • You can contact the College reception to arrange a refund.

I have a list of all our guests who have purchased tickets and they are all labelled up if you want to keep them for the 3rd January.

My sincere apologies for the changes made, however, the safety of our students and guests is paramount to us.

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very peaceful Christmas and a Happy New Year and I look forward to welcoming you and your family to the concert on the 3rd January 2018.

Best wishes
Mel Cooke
