Students who may be enrolling from a year level above Foundation are very welcome. Please call the school and we will be happy to send you an enrolment form and make a time for you to come and have a tour of our school.
The Children at St John’s are very proud of their school. The purpose of the school uniform is to identify each student as a member of the community, and thereby to establish a common bond. The parents and staff together believe that wearing a simple school uniform enhances this feeling of belonging. The wearing of uniforms establishes attitudes of pride and cooperation and adds to the tone of the school. Parents are urged to ensure children wear their uniform and take pride in their appearance. As a SunSmart school, the school hat is a requirement during 1st and 4th terms.
