As a Catholic School, the Faith and person of Jesus Christ is central to our mission. We live out St John’s repeated call to follow the commandment Jesus gave to us all ‘to love one another as he loved’. That message challenged the people of Jesus’ time and continues to challenge people today.
His message of hope and love cannot be heard loud enough in our world and it is our children that we must love and fill with hope to overcome some of the challenges we have inadvertently set them. Challenges in our environment, challenges to peace in the world and certainly challenges in establishing a great deal more understanding in our lives.
At St John’s we have high expectations of our children, both in relation to their learning and their behaviour. We expect them to be well mannered and respectful of all members of our school community and do the best they can in their learning. We are also there to help them when they fail, to pick them up and encourage them to continue in the face of adversity. This can be seen in everything we do, from our House Team Athletics days to the Social Justice programs we run and in the day to day interactions with the children in our care.
Our aim is to ensure that all students experience what success feels like and we offer a wide range of specialist classes to challenge different skills and intelligence, from language skills to our highly successful Digital technology and coding and robotics program which all students from Foundation to Grade 6 are able to experience.
We believe that students should learn how to foster a love of learning. To become lifelong learners, problem solvers, risk-takers and above all, to believe in hope, justice and doing the right thing by others. If this sounds like something you would like for your child. Give us a call and let us help you shape your child’s future.
