The St. Joseph’s Convent, Kingstown is hosting a year-long celebration of its 75th anniversary.
Started on Monday, January 2, 1947 as a private school for both boys and girls, it was established for the purpose of instructing children in the catholic faith and in secular subjects.
Located in one of the rooms in the Sisters’ residence “The Palms”, the St. Joseph’s Preparatory as it was called at the time had an enrollment of four students with Mother Ina as the first principal. By the end of that year the number increased to nineteen.
Today, the St. Joseph’s Convent Kingstown has become one of this country’s top educational institutions, instilling in the lives of young girls Christian values and principles through the provision of holistic education.
To celebrate this Diamond Jubilee, the St. Joseph’s Convent in collaboration with its past Students Association have planned a number of special activities and programs throughout the year with the theme, “Building stronger gems, past, present and future”.
These events will highlight the history of the school and celebrate its many accomplishments.
The St. Joseph’s Convent Kingstown remains committed to educating the nation’s young girls and to providing a safe haven for them to excel holistically.
