Welcome to St John’s School, Silkwood – a co-educational primary school in the Diocese of Cairns. As a small Catholic school, St John’s offers a faith and values based education which focuses on the well-being of each individual child. This focus is achieved through explicit teaching of social emotional learning in a caring and supportive environment. Our school values its community-oriented approach to student wellbeing and family life.
“My family’s association with St John’s stems back to 1999 when my children began their schooling. St John’s offers high quality academic opportunities in a family oriented environment. Children are made to feel safe and loved, promoting the opportunity for all children to achieve their potential in contemporary facilities. Our community kindergarten, located on the school grounds, provides the first step in our school community’s nurturing and development of the next generation.”
