It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school.

I trust your association with our wonderful school will be rewarding, fulfilling and enjoyable for your family and especially for your child.

St John the Baptist is our patron, and just as John made it his mission to love, follow and serve Jesus, we strive to follow in his footsteps. Catholic values and traditions are not only taught in formal religious education programs but it is the ethos of all we do.

Our core task is education. The staff devote their classroom time to teaching and learning. Assessment, data and reporting drive our ongoing focus to deliver a high quality curriculum.

Every child is unique and has a right to develop his/her individual talents. At St John’s our learning support team assess and provide individual programs to bridge learning gaps. Classroom teachers tailor lessons to ensure every student reaches their highest level intellectually, emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually, as stated in the school’s vision statement.

Our aim is to work in partnership with our families. We recognise that parents are the main and prime educators of their children. It is a privilege to share this responsibility of helping the children to reach their fullest potential in preparation for the future.

We hope that you will experience a sense of warmth and welcome and that there will be a rich sharing of ideas, talents and enthusiasm as together we nurture the children in our care.

I look forward to meeting you in the near future.

Best Regards
Margaret McKinnon
