The school first opened its doors to 590 students in 1954. Brother Ascislus Michael, Director of Saint Joseph’s Institution, was the inspiration for the school’s name. Brother Thomas was the initial principal. Saint Michael’s School and Saint Joseph’s Junior School united in 1965.

Approximately 2,000 pupils currently attend the institution. On October 3, 2006, the school declared that beginning January 1, 2007, it would be known as St. Joseph’s Institution Junior, keeping with its 10-year Josephine program. Some former students, however, were opposed to the initial renaming proposal. Former Michaelians signed several internet petitions to keep the name.

School Crest

A white cross, representing the Christian faith, divides the crest’s greenfield into four quadrants. The Brothers’ mark, a five-pointed star, the signum fidei, is located in the center of the cross. Its origin can get traced back to the Star of Bethlehem, which guided the Magi (wise men from the East) to Christ’s birth. The Christian Brothers of St. John Baptist De La Salle’s motto is Signun Fidei (the Sign of Faith). The three interlocking circles in the top quadrant symbolize games and the sporting spirit of all Josephians.

The lamp of knowledge on a book, a sign of learning, is in the upper right quadrant. The lion in the bottom left quadrant symbolizes Josephians’ bravery and resolve in the face of life’s numerous hardships. The school’s monogram gets located in the bottom right quadrant of the crest.
