We thank you for taking time to visit the website.

The purpose of our school is to …
  • PROVIDE a multi-dimensional Education for the girl child.

  • PREPARE our students to be self-motivated for social transformation.


As the Principal of St. Joseph’s I am delighted that the school’s values align with my own personal values, including the importance of trust, respect and a sense of community. I am aware that the development of the school over the years has been significant. In the year 2020 the school celebrates 125 years of its establishment.

We follow the ICSE curriculum which emphasizes the acquisition of knowledge, understanding, critical thinking and problem-solving abilities for all students attending our school. We believe that every student is unique and special and that they all have the ability to learn. We believe it is our responsibility as educators to nurture and develop every student to prepare them for life.

We support the individual wellbeing of our (girls) students and provide a safe environment that allows every student to thrive as they work towards achieving their personal best performance. We set high expectations for our students to excel.

Our students leave the portals of SJC with the skills, mindset and qualities that will best equip them for success in the world of the future. Our students are intelligent, resilient, creative, imaginative, disciplined and respectful. They are the future leaders of society.
