Our programs encourage a lifelong love of learning and are informed by the very best research, data, and resources.
St John’s well reputed early learning practice fosters independent thinkers across all year levels, nurturing lifelong learners and empowering students to take greater responsibility for their development through student initiated and inquiry based projects. Equal emphasis is placed on explicit teaching and gradual release of responsibility, providing students with a balanced and integrated approach to learning.
Additional programs for students timetabled across the week include music, sport, art, Italian, enrichment and learning support. Our art, music and sporting endeavours frequently achieve accolades or awards at Interschool events.
The School Improvement Plan along with Professional Learning Community gatherings ensure an ongoing emphasis is placed on continued literacy and numeracy development within the school.

We are continuously striving to improve children’s learning and enhance teacher instruction. This means working towards developing higher quality teaching skills and promoting more effective learning strategies.
