Life at St John's
We provide a stimulating educational programme with an emphasis on literacy and numeracy, an excellent range of sporting opportunities and activities to celebrate our cultural heritage, and a great house system which fosters school spirit and competition. Our culture is centred on the life of Jesus Christ and the example he set for us all.
Our aim is to provide a high quality education for young men, grounded in Gospel values within our Catholic and Marist tradition. We strive to teach these values, while immersing our young men in an experience of living in a Catholic community. The College’s holistic vision extends to student achievement and support in Pastoral Care, Academia, Sport, Arts and Culture. By expanding our vision to these particular pillars, we believe we can develop a young man who is balanced, well rounded and able to face a competitive secular world with confidence. This is the vision of a ‘St. John’s Man’.
Academics at St John's
St John’s College prides itself in providing an Academic programme that caters for the needs of every individual through a dual Pathway catering for Industry and Academia. This programme has Pathways that enable students to enhance their passions and create bright futures.
Sport at St John's
Sport is an integral part of a boys’ school. It does not build character, it reveals it. At St. John’s College we cater for the needs of all our students. This includes compulsory sport for all Year 9 and 10 students in the winter; and the pursuit of excellence in our main sporting codes. It is supported by first class coaches to help young athletes attain their sporting goals. Introduced as a Gifted and Talented Programme, The Sports Institute was founded in 2014 to support such athletes.
Extra Curricular at St John's
