The Association of Josephite Affiliated Secondary Schools (AJASS), was formed in 2005 in response to the increasing number of lay principals in the schools and recognition of their responsibility to carry on the legacy of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop and Fr Julian Tenison Woods.

The Association aims to embrace, extend, strengthen and perpetuate the charism of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop in schools which identify with her vision and spirit. By sharing ideas, events, and gatherings, schools that are part of the Association endeavour to develop and grow in the Josephite spirit. AJASS holds regular gatherings and meetings and an annual conference as well as maintaining contact through interschool activities and support.

The figures in the icon reflect the form of the Josephite symbol. The 3 figures represent the schools and Josephites working together to support the students (centre figure).

These groups join together to support the messages of Christ (symbolised by the crucifix).

The colours chosen stand for the black and brown Josephite communities and blue to show how this relationship works in harmony.
