School Advisory Committee
St Joseph’s School Advisory Committee which consists of the Parish Priest, Principal and representatives from parents and parish, operates as the principal consultative and advisory body in the school. This body acts as an adviser on strategic planning, support to the principal, school improvement and development, policy and general leadership, the sole purpose ultimately being to serve and work toward the mission and vision of the school.
St Joseph’s School Advisory Committee meets five times a year on a Tuesday at 9.15am.
St Joseph's support student health needs by providing first aid, assisting students with specific medical conditions and providing health care to students with additional medical requirements i.e. support with taking medication, in eating or drinking.

Working With Children's Checks
All Parent Volunteers and Helpers who have direct contact with children at this school are expected to have a Working With Children's Check.
The definition of 'Direct Contact' has been explained to include oral, written or electronic communication in addition to face to face and physical contact.
A Working With Children's Check is now required for anyone engaged in 'child related work' regardless of whether contact with a child is supervised by another person. 'Child related work' is defined as any work that involves direct contact with a child that is part of the person's work.
At St Joseph's Wonthaggi we are committed to ensuring students and staff are protected from too much UV which can cause sunburn, skin and eye damage and skin cancer. Our school uniform includes covering clothing and sun protective hats. For more information about SunSmart at St Joseph's, please read our Sunsmart Policy.
