|Qualities and characteristics best defining the school||
St Joseph’s Marist College is a multicultural, fully co-ed school that extends from Pre-school to Matric.
|Teaching approach of the school||
In the Marist tradition of its founder, St Marcellin Champagant, St Joseph’s provides an education that is academic, spiritual and morally formative in nature, and where each child is given the opportunity to be the very best he/she can be. Creative and critical thinking underpins all learning activities, and pupils are encouraged to develop beyond the curriculum. From the classroom to the sports field; from the concert hall to the chapel, St Joseph’s Marist College shows that learning can be real, relevant and fun!
The mission of St Joseph’s Marist College to form the whole person in the image of Christ is created by blending three distinct traditions: The pursuit of academic excellence, the heritage of Catholic education, and the spirit of Marist charism.
