As a Diocesan Catholic School, we are committed to the development of the whole person, and recognise the uniqueness of each student.

Here at St John the Baptist Catholic Primary School, using the foundations of the Australian Curriculum, we strive towards developing:

Students of hope, joy, courage and wisdom

  • Communicators who are effective, astute, creative and insightful
  • Learners who are inquiring and reflective, seeking the truth and developing initiative
  • Participants and producers who are independent
  • Citizen of the world who are responsible, ethical, resourceful and appreciate the value of an understanding of the past in creating a better future 
  •  People enriched by a spiritual appreciation of self, God, neighbour and life
  • Learners who develop 21st Century Fluencies and use an investigative, research based approach to learning to prepare them for life in a rapidly changing world
  • Informed, life-long learners displaying a love of learning and are unique and bring strengths and, talents and needs to the learning process.

Our syllabus and approaches to teaching are designed to nurture children’s’ capacity to be life-long learners through developing deep understandings. Life-long learning is nurtured at St John’s by embedding persona, social, and spiritual skills within the curriculum. These are further enhanced through actively engaging children in applying these skills within their school and broader lives.
