Our school gospel values, along with the values that are found in the New Zealand curriculum are interwoven into our teaching and learning. These include faith; excellence; respect; integrity; humility; innovation, inquiry and curiosity; diversity; equity; community and participation; peace, citizenship and manaakitanga; and ecological sustainability.

At St Joseph's we respect all cultures and all people.

We understand that it is our duty as brothers and sisters in Christ to show love and care for one another.

These are our school gospel values, as decided by our community. These values are explicitly taught through our Health Curriculum.
