- Primary School
We are a Catholic school that provides a Catholic education for each and every one of our students. We expect that all families embrace our Catholic identity and understand the Catholic ethos. A good quality Catholic education is centred on the teachings of Jesus Christ and spreading the good news. It focuses on the development of the whole human person: spiritually, academically, socially, physically, academically and emotionally preparing them for the challenges of the 21st century, allowing each child to reach their full potential.
‘Plant the seed, nurture the growth, celebrate the harvest’ is our school vision. Our teaching principles are based on sowing Christian values, nurturing relationships, cultivating excellence, rising to challenges and harvesting opportunities to grow an optimistic community. The current St John’s community is respectful of the past and excited about the future, as it plays its part in inspiring St John’s students to live the school motto of ‘Always Reaching for New Heights’. This motto reflects our philosophy that we are all on a learning journey to do our best and strive for greatness in learning and caring for one another in the school community.
We recognise families as the first and most important educators of their children. We see our role as supporting your relationship with your child and enhancing a home/school partnership based on mutual trust, respect and a shared responsibility. We encourage all parents to actively participate in their children’s school life by becoming involved in school community events throughout the year. Research clearly shows that when families and schools works together as a community in a collaborative and positive manner, a child’s capacity to achieve their learning potential is significantly enhanced. Maintaining positive relationships and working together as a team to ensure our students are learning in a happy and safe environment is vital.
We are very proud of our staff, students and families that create our community. Our dedicated and professional staff continually strive to develop their knowledge and skills in providing a curriculum that nurtures a safe, inclusive and authentic learning environment that caters for the individual needs of each of our students. We celebrate achievements and progress in all learning areas across the curriculum throughout the year.
At St John’s we place a very strong focus on the social emotional learning well-being of all of our students. Our programs are delivered to build emotional resilience, a positive mindset for achievement, getting along and social responsibility that will assist students to become productive and contributing members of our society.
