Student Life > A Child Safe School


At Mount St. Joseph Girls’ College, we hold the care, safety and wellbeing of children and young people as a fundamental and legal responsibility of the College.

Our commitment is drawn from and inherent in the teaching and mission of Jesus Christ, with love, justice and the sanctity of each human person at the heart of the gospel. Celebrating and affirming all young people in the charism of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of the Sacred Heart, we value the dignity and individuality of each person in our community and seek to live in a community guided by justice and fairness for all.

For our students to flourish academically and in all areas of their lives, it is important that they are happy and enjoy being at school. Their safety, physical and mental wellbeing are of paramount importance to us.

Where Can I Go for Help?

We encourage any student who feels unsafe to confide in a trusted adult or contact the College’s Child Safety Officers, Mr Steven Mifsud and Ms Stacey Bourke, in person or by email.
