St Joseph’s College is located at 2 Doyle Drive Banora Point, New South Wales and works closely with its parents and the community to fulfill the important role of educating the youth of the Tweed Heads region.

The school’s motto is ‘Peace through Justice’ which is modified from Pope Pius XII’s motto ‘Opus Justitiae Pax’ – The work of justice is peace.

This original motto was taken up in 1939 at the outbreak of World War II.  The motto transcends the circumstances of those times to inspire each of us through significant effort in our personal lives, to establish community at local and international levels. The dove of peace reinforces this message.
