Welcome to St John's Primary School


Welcome to St John’s Primary School. We are committed to providing a quality Catholic education for our community. We acknowledge the need to personalise learning for the needs of every student in our care, through the effective planning and teaching of differentiated learning opportunities, so that learning is purposeful, individualised and relevant.


Our smaller class sizes ensure that, In choosing St John’s, you are choosing a school where your child is known, by every student, every staff member, but most importantly by themselves: who they are and how they learn best. Our daily learning is strongly and unapologetically literacy and numeracy based, underpinned by the explicit teaching of social-emotional learning skills and critical thinking capabilities that intersect every learning opportunity.


Our newly invigorated specialist program is reflective of student voice and agency. 2021 will see the introduction of a French Language program.  This, together with Physical Education, Digi Tech and Science/STEM comprise our weekly specialist program.


Our Catholic faith is central to who we are and how we create learning environments to engage our students. We are a truly welcoming, multicultural school that embraces its diversity for the richness and transformative nature of being an authentic, global yet local community. 


As a welcoming community, our vision includes creating an environment at St John’s that is child safe; where your child feels connected, engaged and safe to be the best learner they can be.

A Word from Our Students

"I love St John’s because everyone is so kind and caring. I love that everyone knows my name and all the teachers say good morning at the gate.   I enjoy going to school everyday because I know people will look after me."

- Rose, Year 4

"Education inspired by the power of love and compassion, to bring forth just action and hope in our world."


- inspired by Mary Aitkenhead, Founder of the Sisters of Charity
