After a stint at St David’s School, he returned to Mercedes and then took on a leadership position at St Pius X. Joe was a principal consultant at Catholic Education SA before taking on the role of principal at St Francis Xavier and then Star of the Sea.

The new principal of Star of the Sea is Damian Weeks.
