Welcome to our website
St Joseph's College has a long history and tradition as part of Dumfries' educational community. Many of the parents of today's students also studied here and think so highly of it that they send their sons and daughters to us. Our staff uses a variety of teaching methods to make learning fun. We try hard to foster an academic environment in which children feel comfortable so that they can study most effectively.
This year marks the 200th anniversary of the Foundation of the Marist Order. One hundred years ago, in 1917, there was a grand lunch held at St Joseph's College.
It is our intention to re-enact that event with the same menu. Past and present pupils, staff and family members are invited to attend Mass in the College Chapel. It will be followed by the lunch which will take place in the Easterbrook Hall on Sunday 28 May.
There will be entertainment afterwards and displays of memorabilia including information about past pupils, the Marist order and St Joseph's College which was established in Dumfries in 1875.
We are seeking items and memories of the life and times of members of the school community. All will be catalogued and returned to owners in the same condition. If you would like to attend the lunch or come along afterwards to browse through the displays, sponsor the event, or donate a raffle prize please let us know by contacting us via social media on Facebook using @StJosephcollegedfs , Twitter using @StJosephsDfs or by e-mail at Marist200@stjosephscollege.co.uk.
