Our Dominican Tradition

Our Dominican tradition encompasses our whole school life at St Joseph's. A big part of that tradition started by the early sisters in Oamaru is singing. Our own Mrs Asi has her name on one of the singing cups from her own time at St Joseph's. Mrs Brookes was also part of it back in her time in the school community, as was Miss Tangney. It's great to see that tradition alive and well in St Joseph's today.
