Our School

St John the Baptist Catholic School is a coeducational school catering for students from Reception to Year 6.

We are a welcoming, vibrant, faith filled community and we work together with families to grow each child’s educational and spiritual development, inspired by the service of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop. Our school motto “In Omnibus Caritas” (In All Things Love) is a guiding principle in all that we do.

The Australian Curriculum is implemented at St John the Baptist Catholic School from Reception to Year 6 which sets the expectations for what students are taught across the various learning areas. The learning progress of each child is monitored, supported and developed and continuous feedback is provided to each student and their family.

Social and emotional learning is taught explicitly across the school. We wrap our students in a Circle of Care which includes support from a school chaplain and school counsellor.

Extra-curricular activities include opportunities for students to excel in the sporting arena, as well as the expressive and performing arts and music.
As a Catholic School we look forward to working in partnership with families, building a cooperative relationship between home and school to develop thriving, capable learners.
