OUR CATHOLIC IDENTITY

St John the Baptist Catholic Primary School is part of the Catholic Education family within the Diocese of Rockhampton. As a school community, through our words and actions, we strive to give witness to the defining feaures of a Catholic School.

Have a clear Catholic identity
Be open and accessible to all who seek our values
Offer a relevant and holistic curriculum of quality teaching and learning
Be a community of care and
Develop inclusive partnerships within a community of faith

St John the Baptist is a Catholic Primay School where everything we do reflects Gospel Values. As adults, staff and parents, we need to model the gospel values for the young people within our community and invite them to live these values.

Our school has thrived under the quidance of the Marist sisters initially and also the Marist priests, who play a major role in our school's spiritual life. Characteristics of our patron saint, St John the Baptist are reflected in our school motto.
"True Before God, True Before All."

Our school strives to prepare our students for the life ahead of them spiritually, academically and socially, just as St John prepared the way for Jesus.
