My time at St. Joseph's School helped instill the moral, ethical, spiritual and family values that I have drawn on throughout my life.

My favourite place in Chemainus is my school. I like the school (St. Joseph's) because it is a safe and caring environment. Kids in my school go on to do great things because of the loving and caring people who teach there.
