When we were looking for a school we checked out about a dozen. When we walked into St Joseph’s and felt the quiet and gentle environment, we just knew it was the right one. It has exceeded all expectations. We hit the jackpot with this school. They really do strive for excellence in every single way. - St Joseph’s parent

There is a genuine love and care for the kids in the class. They really want to see them do well and are genuinely invested in them. The school organized for me and my daughter’s teacher to attend a special training day together so we could both be on the same page in working through her challenges. It’s all done in such a positive way. - St Joseph’s parent

The kids feel safe and part of the community. It has that village feel. It becomes like an extended family because not a lot have extended family in Canberra. We live by the values and my kids will proudly say ‘We’re St Joseph’s kids’. - St Joseph’s parent
