Its speaks of family, community, parents, children, teachers and staff, honouring everyone as whole that makes St Joseph’s what it is today. It also speaks on the history of the war memorial and the focus for our children's future built upon the foundation of love, faith , courage, resilience an​d hope and this is Karul.​
