philosophySchool Philosophy

St Joseph’s School Woodburn, recognises the parents as the first educators of their child.

The school is a sign of Faith and sponsors the Faith development of the children. We believe that a parent/school partnership is essential for effective school education. Positive parental attitude towards school is a must if this partnership is to develop.

Catholic Education strives for excellence in the academic areas and whilst we give due emphasis to the acquisition of knowledge and skills, we are equally concerned with the development of Christian attitudes and values.

We particularly wish to encourage in each child self-acceptance, respect for themselves and others, and the feeling that each child is an important member of the school community.

The school, assisted by Priest, staff and parents, sees the end product of Christian education as the integration of the child spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually.
