Our School Community

VIRTUE ALONE ENNOBLES

Members of the St John’s Parish School community are encouraged to live out the true mission of Jesus by recognising and acknowledging the sacredness and uniqueness of each individual.

Religious Education is an integral part of the curriculum at St John’s. All children are expected to participate in the Religious Education Program and liturgical activities whilst attending St John’s Parish School.

Our school provides a comprehensive education comprising all Key Learning Areas (KLAs) as mandated by the NSW Educational Standards Authority.

The following curriculum areas are taught at St John’s:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science and Technology
  • Human Society and its Environment (History and Geography)
  • Personal Development
  • Health and Physical Education
  • Creative & Practical Arts

Every student at St John’s has the opportunity to be involved in sport and participate in Diocesan, Inter-diocesan and State Carnivals. Staff at St John’s are committed and dedicated to ensuring that the needs of every student are catered for.

Reporting

A parent information evening is held at the beginning of the year to allow the parents an opportunity to be part of the yearly goals for the whole school and each class.

At the end of the second and fourth terms, an individual report is sent home with an invitation to parents to make an appointment for an interview to discuss the student’s progress and formulate goals for future progress.

The teachers are available to parents whenever the need arises unless of course, they are in class. The principal has an open door policy for parents, as well as staff and students, and only ask parents to make appointments at particularly busy times.


Parental Involvement


St John’s Parish School works in partnership with the parents to provide each student with the opportunities to reach his/her full potential.

As a result, parents are welcome in our school at all times. Many parents come into the school on a volunteer basis to help with reading programs, canteen, covering books, athletic and swimming carnivals, special occasions during Catholic Schools week, Grandparents’ Day and morning teas.
