Our Year 3-6 students participate in innovative, creative learning experiences that value intellectual rigour, creative thinking and diversity. The integration of technology into the classroom experience ensures that our students are equipped with the skills to develop a global perspective in an online world. Students in Years 3 and 4 have access to desktop and laptop computers and students in Years 5 and 6 participate in the personal laptop computer leasing program.
St John’s generous student to teacher ratios ensures that our students receive a differentiated program that highlights the learning needs of every child. Specialist teachers in Music, Library, Christian Studies and Languages ensure a breadth of curriculum opportunities and expertise as students choose to focus on areas of interest and passion in later years. Full-time, weekly and casual boarding is available for girls in Years 5 and 6.
School wellbeing initiatives, such as the Live Life Well @ School program, are an integral component of the care our staff have for their students. For our Year 5 and 6 students, peer leadership works towards the development of respectful, responsible and caring leaders of our school community. All students are encouraged and assisted to develop resilience and social and emotional well-being within themselves and others. The needs of each boy and girl are the responsibility of all staff and students; learning, laughing, engaging and growing together.
