Our Mission, Vision and Values

Our Mission

St John the Baptist Catholic School, in partnership with families, is a community which creates opportunities for encountering life to the full, in all its personal, religious, political, ecological and cultural richness.

Our Values

At St John the Baptist Catholic School we value:
  • An openness to Gods Spirit at work amongst us
  • All creations interconnectedness 
  • A commitment to practices of life-long learning
  • Striving for personal growth in all aspects of school and community life 
  • Respecting the dignity of each person through actions of inclusivity, sensitivity, justice, compassion and love.

Our Vision

At St John the Baptist Catholic School we create a welcoming Christ centred community bound by the Josephite Charism of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop.  Our students engage with a progressive and inclusive curriculum underpinned by contemporary teaching and learning practices.  Students and families are welcomed, valued, accepted and supported within a safe environment committed  to ecological sustainability.

Acknowledgement of Country

St John the Baptist Catholic School acknowledges and respects the traditional custodians of the region upon whose ancestral land we operate.

We acknowledge and pay our respects to the Elders, past, present and future - for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and the hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

We also pay respect to the cultural authority of Aboriginal people from other areas of South Australia and Australia and acknowledge their deep feelings of attachment and Spiritual relationship to Country.
