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

St Joseph’s College (the College) has a Child Safeguarding Policy as an overarching statement that provides key elements of the College’s approach to the safeguarding of children and young people from abuse and harm. This policy is designed as the College’s public statement of commitment to the protection of children from abuse and grooming and a demonstration of the College’s commitment to ensure child safety in all College environments. Our Child Safe Adult Codes of Conduct Policy lists all acceptable and unacceptable behaviours. It provides a high-level statement of professional boundaries, ethical behaviour, acceptable and unacceptable relationships. College environments include both physical and online environments, as well as those outside its premises and grounds when College-related activities are occurring. Both the Child Safeguarding and Child Safe Adult Codes of Conduct Policy are available on the College website. You must familiarise and comply with these Policies. If you do not comply, the College may take disciplinary action, up to and including termination of your employment or engagement.

We have a zero tolerance for child abuse and other harm and are committed to acting in students’ best interests and keeping them safe from harm.
The College regards its child safeguarding responsibilities with the utmost importance and is committed to providing the necessary resources to ensure compliance with all relevant child protection laws and regulations and maintaining a child safe culture. Each member of the College community has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role that they play individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all students is at the forefront of all that they do and every decision they make.
