In their own words
“From my first day of work at Joeys, I have been treated with kindness and respect from fellow colleagues. Working in a warm, supportive environment has allowed me to grow personally and professionally. I have been consistently supported in my professional development and in the areas of teaching I love and have a particular passion for. In particular, teaching students with learning needs and student wellbeing.
It is the honesty, good humour and respect of the boys here which has brought so much joy in my role as a teacher. I have had the privilege of working with boys in the classroom, in the dorms, on the sporting fields and even on an overseas immersion to Tanzania. In all of these areas, the students have been respectful and caring, and have displayed a sincere sense of family spirit.”
Michaela Meagher, English
“The diverse group of young men we teach ensures that in all our class discussions both the boys and the staff are enlightened to hear the stories and opinions of others. We have students from Sydney, regional areas and overseas. We have boys from varied religious and cultural backgrounds, which creates a unique dynamic in conversation. Joeys ethos is very much a team approach. Teachers, parents and boys work together to attain the best possible outcomes for students. It’s why I enjoy working as a teacher at Joeys.”
Danny Sidgreaves, Mathematics
“Joeys is a very special place. I have a real sense of pride whenever I tell people I am part of this loving community. There are many things that make it special. Joeys is not just about teaching academic subjects, it’s also about developing deep and meaningful relationships that will last a life time. This creates a sense of belonging where families still proudly wear the College crest long after their son has graduated. I also love the Marist Charism and how family spirit and presence are a huge part of the Joeys fabric. I truly believe that Joeys has a unique and winning formula that provides our boys with a safe and loving environment where they can discover themselves and flourish to become great men.”

St Joseph’s College (the College) has a Child Protection Policy as an overarching statement that provides key elements of the College’s approach to the protection of children and young people from abuse.

A Child Protection Code of Conduct lists all acceptable and unacceptable behaviours. It provides a high-level statement of professional boundaries, ethical behaviour, acceptable and unacceptable relationships.
