St John the Baptist Catholic Primary School is a 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 features 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
  • Develop inclusive partnerships within a community of faith


St John the Baptist is a Catholic Primary 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 all to live these values.


Our school has thrived under the guidance of 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 the statements “Preparing the Way” and “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 the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus.
