The Principal message
St. Joseph-Chaminade Academy aims to create a supportive and inclusive environment where gifted and talented students are encouraged to explore their potential and achieve their personal best in all aspects of school life. Students will be challenged and engaged through authentic learning opportunities that inspire them to develop creativity, confidence and resilience to become independent and ethical life-long learners.
We offer a broad curriculum and a range of opportunities for all our students to achieve excellence in academic, creative, social, cultural, sporting and community endeavors. We value collaborative learning, positive relationships and building capacity amongst our students to effectively allow them to engage in the world of the future, where problem solving, evaluating, working in teams, communicating, creating and innovating are not only valued concepts, but expected skills, attributes and capabilities.
We support the individual wellbeing of our students and provide a school environment that allows every student to thrive as they work towards achieving their personal best performance. We set high expectations for our students and work hard to safeguard positive emotions across our school community. We are partners in learning with our students and seek to deepen their knowledge, provide enriching and innovative learning experiences, while also gently urging our students out of their comfort zone to attempt new challenges.
We value relationships and connections with the community. We encourage our students to develop respectful relationships with their peers, teachers, parents and the broader community. We instill in our students a keen social conscience and the capacity to make ethical decisions. We work hard to develop and sustain productive partnerships and connections with our parents and families.
Our students graduate from St. Joseph-Chaminade Academy with the skills, mind sets and qualities that will best equip them for success in the world of the future. Our students are intelligent, resilient, creative, imaginative, disciplined, dedicated to life-long learning, respectful and ethical. They are the future leaders and role models of society. They learn to lead and serve our families, societies, and our nation.
