All Saints College. St. Joseph's Campus is a coeducational secondary day school catering for years 7 to 10, based in New South Wales, Australia. The school was created in 1990 by the amalgamation of Catholic secondary schools in the area, St. Joseph's, St. Peter's and St. Mary's in Maitland.
St. Joseph's is one of the oldest schools in New South Wales, and in Australia. The Sisters of St. Joseph, founded by Fr Julian Tension Woods, established their first school at Lochinvar in 1883.
The first lay principal was H Hemphill (1990–1994) followed Michael Healy in 1995, who left the school at the end of 2004. Peter Hamill was the next principal until 2005. The current Executive is composed of a Principal, Paul Greaves and two Assistant Principals, Nicholas Wickham and David Crawford. The Campus motto is "Vigor in Ardius Crescat" which in Latin for "May your strength increase in difficulties".
The school day at St Joseph's Lochinvar starts at 8:50 am and ends at 3:20pm. The students attend 6 periods from Monday to Thursday and only 4 on Friday as they attend sport every Friday afternoon. Every second Friday morning the school leaders hold a whole school assembly under the COLA (Covered Outdoor Learning Area) which was constructed in mid-2009.
St Joseph's is renowned for its sporting programs, particularly in regards to Rugby League. Up and coming Newcastle Knights forward Joel Edwards attended the school. The Rugby League sides are quite successful as they are coached by a former NRL player, Scott Asimus.
