At St John’s, students are encouraged to grow emotionally, academically and spiritually. The Christian Studies program aims to grow students in all of these areas as the biblical text is studied and students are encouraged to develop a deeper understanding of life, God and themselves.
Each week the bible stories are bought to life in a fun, engaging and interactive chapel service. The biblical text is presented in a wide variety of approaches aimed to engage all individual styles of student learning. Music plays an integral part in St John’s chapel services with stories and teachings being brought to life in song.
Students also attend a weekly Christian Studies lesson of 45 minutes in duration. As well as informing students of the historicity of the bible; lessons aim to encourage students to value the teachings of Jesus in loving each other and looking to Christ as a role model of Godly living.
