Welcome to St John's
Exceeding literacy benchmarks through explicit phonics, daily small group teaching & much smaller class sizes, to meet students individual needs.
I warmly welcome you to St John’s Primary School, Clifton Hill, our hidden gem in the heart of inner city Melbourne.
Everything we do aims to create a learning environment that is a place of genuine connection and belonging, where our students achieve high academic outcomes.
At St John’s we provide a contemporary catholic education in a nurturing, warm and supportive environment where all of our students can thrive, socially and emotionally, spiritually, physically and importantly, academically.
Our results truly speak for themselves! I would love the opportunity to show you our school.

MACS Governance Statement
St John’s Primary School is a school which operates with the consent of the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne and is operated and governed by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS).
MACS governs and operates Catholic schools in the Archdiocese to continue the mission of Catholic education to proclaim the Good News and equip our young people with the knowledge, skills, and hope to live meaningful lives and enrich the world around them.
Because the good work of educating the young is a co-responsible task led by every member of the Catholic school community, School Advisory Councils have been established to provide a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders. This governance model was designed to ease the administrative burden on our schools and parishes, allow parish priests to focus on the mission of education in the parish, enable greater collaboration between schools and ensure greater consistency in school policies and procedures.
More information about MACS is available at www.macs.vic.edu.au.
