St Joseph’s has a very active social justice program with a dual focus on awareness and action. The staff and student leaders promote initiatives to support a variety of groups, organisations or appeals locally, nationally and globally. This includes the Lenten CARITAS Appeal, St Vincent de Paul Appeals (winter and Christmas) and Catholic Mission.
Students have the opportunity to put their faith into action and become part of the Mini Vinnies group. These students are committed to making a difference in the lives of others who most need support. Recent activities have raised awareness of and much needed funds for schools and communities in Cambodia, homeless through the winter sleep out, dress for a cause, Jersey Day, drought appeals and the elderly in our community. The school encourages students to propose other areas for social justice work at a local level. From year to year, this is in response to the needs of the local community.
