We have gone through so much for almost a century, browse through our history, know us more.
Since 1883, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny have worked in The Gambia with devotion and dedication in the fields of Education, Nursing and other social work for the promotion of the full development of the Gambian people. St. Joseph’s Senior Secondary School (previously St. Joseph’s High School) was established in 1921 as a Roman Catholic Mission School for Girls by the Congregation with an initial enrolment of forty-four students headed by Mrs. Nellie Morris who handed over to Sr. Celeste Wall in 1923. The school’s policy was to instil self discipline, inculcate moral values and to provide a model education for its students, Christians and Muslims alike; with basic reading, writing, arithmetic, music (introduced in 1926), home economics skills with a great emphasis on religious education.
With the help of the our weekly Thursday Assemblies we have notured a routine of a creativity, academics and entertainment.
See the great fun and experience our students have always made us exprience in this unbelieveable environment of Art, Academics, Sports, Entertainment, etc.
The St. Joseph’s Experience is very powerful
It gives students a unique sense of boldness.
It helps them to develop their God given talents and potentials.
It gives the girls the opportunity to explore different disciplines and integrate fields of knowledge, and, to ask the right questions.
Here students are uniquely prepared to not only fit in but to excel wherever they may find themselves.
