At St. Joseph’s we promote wellbeing and human flourishing by nurturing the whole person – their spiritual, cognitive, physical, emotional and social selves. This is a journey in hope and towards hope undertaken in partnership with parents, who are the first educators of their children. We know that a positive sense of wellbeing can foster higher levels of engagement, school connectedness, emotional vitality, psychosocial functioning and academic performance. It is a key factor in enabling children and young people to contribute to society and enjoy meaningful and spiritually enriched lives.
At St. Joseph’s we believe that children and young people have the capacity to achieve their full potential when their wellbeing is nurtured in faith-filled learning environments that are safe, inclusive and respectful.
You can never underestimate the importance of fostering within children a sense of belonging and connectedness to their community. Our students are in their formative years, developing their sense of self, identity and their social and emotional skills.
Research has shown that when children feel a sense of belonging they flourish. They have higher levels of emotional resilience and overall physical and mental wellbeing. It is positively associated with optimism, self-efficacy and self-esteem.
At St. Joseph’s Crib Point building positive relationships and fostering a sense of connectedness for all is at the core of what we do. We acknowledge all our children as unique and wonderful in their own way.
