Prime Minister's Visit to St. Joseph's Convent Port-of Spain
The Honourable Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, the Minister of Education, Dr. Nyan Gadsby- Dolly, the Minister in the Ministry of Education, Lisa Morris-Julian and a team from the Ministry of Education visited our school on Monday 4th October 2021. It was the first day for the return of our Upper 6s to in-person school.
We are a medium sized, Roman Catholic secondary school; the oldest in Trinidad and Tobago, but our learners’ exceptional academic results reflect our commitment to innovation in teaching and learning. In addition, our students are encouraged to take part in a variety of extra-curricular activities and have distinguished themselves, our school. our country and our region in the areas of community service, sport and the creative and performing arts.
Rooted in tradition and faith, we offer students a vibrant environment that enriches character and inspires a lifelong passion for learning and personal excellence, while providing them with the skills, knowledge and values necessary to become confident, passionate, strong young women (and men) prepared to play leading roles in their community and the world.
In 2011, our school proudly celebrated its 175th anniversary, but we are happy to be able to use new technologies to improve the psychological, social and academic outcomes for our learners and to communicate with our entire learning community. We particularly wish to encourage our parents and alumni to use the opportunities available to keep in touch with us.
As you browse this site, you will see our learners - engaged and enthusiastic, compassionate and caring, articulate and ambitious and you'll discover what it truly means to be a Convent girl!
The SJCPOS learning community is connected on Edmodo - our secure and private micro-blogging platform, built around closed group collaboration, so only our students can join groups using a secret code provided by their teacher. This makes it easy for teachers, students and parents to stay connected and share information even while away from the classroom. Each student will receive a log in code and then set their own personal password. Parents will also receive a unique log in code, so that you may communicate privately with our teachers and administrators. You can even use EdmodoMobile so we can stay connected on the go!
