The sisters of La Sainte Union have been an inspiration and source of encouragement to me since the opening of the new building."Their passion for the arts and spiritual growth shows the innovative philosophy held close to their hearts that education is life - not league tables."Our ever expanding curriculum demonstrates that the spirit of St Joseph's is as vibrant now as one hundred years ago.
