St John’s is a regional college that provides secondary education to the students of the surrounding parishes. For more than 50 years, the college has devised programs to provide excellent curriculum and facilities for its students. In recent years, the college has continuously reviewed its approach to teaching and learning, introducing Best Practice programs, to ensure that students have every opportunity to engage in active and challenging learning. A St John’s education is based on four “pillars”: Holistic Education, Innovation, Community and Foundations for Success.
Facilities: The college has excellent facilities including extensive print and networked electronic resources, industry-standard technology, restaurant facilities, global learning classrooms, auditorium, stadium and well-equipped laboratories.
Curriculum: An integrated and holistic curriculum incorporating the concepts of engaged student learning and authentic assessment provides the framework for maximising student academic performance. Year 7 students benefit from a comprehensive transition program. The VCE program builds on the solid literacy and numeracy skills developed in the junior years. The college offers VET programs and a Pathways program in Year 10 as well as VCAL. St John’s recently won a third national Tourism and Training Award in recognition of its hospitality program.
Sport: Sports include netball, athletics, football, basketball, soccer, cricket, golf, roller skating, ice skating, cross-country skiing, gymnastics and windsurfing.
Extra-curricular activities: Drama, theatre, school musicals, reflection days, talent quest, community service, Tournament of Minds, outdoor education and camps/retreats.
Student welfare programs: St John’s values the uniqueness of each student and strives to develop the whole person. Each student is encouraged to reach his or her potential — spiritually, socially, physically and academically — and thus become a valuable member of society. Leadership is nurtured at St John’s and all students are provided with opportunities and encouragement to explore new horizons and participate in enriching programs, which provide contrast to their academic studies. The St John’s community is one in which learning personal responsibility and growth to Christian maturity are valued
