Students in the outdoor classroom

We value parent and guardian engagement in their child's education. We believe the partnership between home, parish and school is vital to a student's success. We believe that good schools become better schools when there is a strong connection with the parent community. This can be achieved through volunteering through our Catholic School Council or Durham Catholic Parent Involvement Committee.

We partner with PRYDE Learning Centre to offer full time child care and before and after school care.

Safe and caring schools

We are committed to fostering a positive and welcoming school climate at St. Joseph Catholic School. Our staff are actively promoting positive mental health and well-being with students.

Report it

Whether it's a student absence or a concern/ incident of bullying - you can report it. Open lines of communication between you and your child's school will ensure we are addressing any concerns and providing students with supports.


Student transportation to and from home and school is provided by the Durham Student Transportation System. Service is based on your school boundaries and the distance between your home and school.
