Student Council

The school has a representative council of elected students which meets regularly and provides an avenue for new student ideas and initiatives.

The Student Council gives children an opportunity for leadership and responsibility. They are mediators who can convey and implement ideas from their peers that will enrich their time at St Joseph’s Orakei.

“We feel proud to be leaders at St Joseph’s school because we encourage the little children to try their best.” 

Nurturing our Future Leaders

Although leadership opportunities are provided from early on, at a Senior level formal leadership roles are allocated including Head Boy and Girl, House Team Leaders, Sports Leaders, Club Captains, and Library and Liturgy Leaders. Our students become natural public speakers due to a small school roll allowing numerous opportunities for each child to present in class, at Mass and at assembly for example. Many of our graduates are top public speakers at their secondary schools.

Our children live their Catholic Faith with compassion and appreciation of differences in others.
