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.

St John’s successfully blends excellence in academic performance, creative arts and sports. The school offers state-of-the-art technology and inclusive, flexible learning environments. All children’s needs are well catered for.
Mrs Cassandra Scopelliti – St John’s P&F President
Students have many opportunities including Music tuition, Languages, Social and Emotional Learning, Intensive Swimming and a very successful Speech and Drama program. Our children are nurtured in a caring learning environment that values respect, encouragement, aspiration, care and honesty.
Mrs Kylie Dodds – Kindy and school parent
My daughter has blossomed socially, academically and emotionally in St John’s small class cohorts. I love teaching here because as a small school, teachers and students have wonderful opportunities to engage in teaching and learning experiences that are unique. Our teachers tailor lessons to suit the specific needs of our students and ensure that all children reach their full potential. Our teachers place high importance on assessment to inform their subsequent planning. The analysis of NAPLAN results informs our whole school curriculum focus.
The generous amount of professional development staff receive at St John’s enables me to remain up-to-date and well prepared to teach students the required content of the Australian Curriculum, utilising our wonderful ICT resources.
Mrs Debbie Daly – Parent, class teacher and curriculum support teacher
One of my greatest joys of becoming a member of the St John’s School community comes from watching the children grow through the numerous, academic, social and emotional development opportunities available. They also learn about the benefit and joy of giving to others and become involved with community service activities.
St John’s provides a safe, caring environment based on Christian values, where our children are supported through the school’s higher-than-average teacher to student ratio and its professional development program for staff.
Mrs Julie Elliott – Kindy and School Parent
I immediately felt part of a strong community. I was welcomed in and encouraged to become actively involved in my children’s education. The many school social events build on this community spirit, getting teachers, parents and students together in a relaxed environment. Through St John’s active P & F Association I feel I do have a say and my opinion is valued.
