Is it possible for us to have a look around the school?

You are most welcome to call and make an appointment to meet with the Principal, or book a time for a tour of the school grounds and buildings.

 

When will I find out whether my child has been accepted into the school?

Enrolment interviews are held in May and June. You will receive a letter or phone call during April informing you of a time for you and your child to come in and meet with the Principal. Written offers of placement will follow in July.

 

How much are the school fees?

There are three levels of annual fees to be paid:

  • Tuition Fees
    $1215 per family per year (payable in 3 instalments ... Term 1 $405, Term 2 $405, Term 3 $405)
  • Primary School SEDSO Building and Maintenance Levy 
    $592 per family per year (payable in 3 instalments... Term 1 $197, Term 2 $197, Term 3 $198) 
  • Resource Fee
    $110 per student per year
    The Resource Fee covers books, stationery, excursions and incursions. This varies from year to year depending on the needs of the grade. 

Please note that tuition and SEDSO fees are only paid for the first child in each family, resource fees are paid per child.

Payments can be made in full or part using eftpos, BPAY, direct debit, cash, cheque or money order.

If you are experiencing financial hardship and are unable to pay fees, please discuss the situation with the Principal. Your situation will be treated with care and confidentiality and an appropriate arrangement may be made for you.  No student will be refused enrolment because of a family’s genuine inability to pay fees.

 

What are the opening hours of the school?

School begins at 8:55am. Supervision begins at 8:30 am. The school day concludes at 3:20 pm and parents are expected to collect their children as soon as possible after this time.

What extra-curricular activities are available at St John's?

There are many opportunities for your child to become involved in extra-curricular activities;  St John's competes in Public Speaking, chess and J-Rock. We have representative teams in swimming, athletics, cross country, soccer, rugby league, basketball netball and cricket.  Children also have the opportunity to try out for Mackillop (Diocesan representative) teams in several different sports.  We have an environmental group, Student Representative Council, a school choir and music tuition. 

 

Is there an anti-bullying policy in place at the school?

At St John's we believe that all members of the community have the right to a learning and working environment free from intimidation, humiliation and harm. We all share a responsibility to create a culture of caring which will not tolerate bullying. We believe that bullying must be taken seriously and is not acceptable in any form. In witnessing Christian values we reject ideas, beliefs and behaviours, which marginalise or victimise people.

How can I / we become involved in the life of the school community?

Parents are encouraged to become actively involved in their children’s education at St John's. Ways you can help in your child’s classroom might be reading with children, taskboard groups or covering books in the Library. Other ways of becoming involved are volunteering to help in the canteen, attending special days and events such as school liturgies or performances, helping at special events such as sporting carnivals, school fetes, assisting getting costumes and props together for performances such as J-Rock.  Families are also encouraged to attend mass in our St John's Parish.

 

Will I be able to come and help in the classroom?

St John’s welcomes parents and grandparents to help in the classrooms. Each grade will be different, but parents often participate and contribute in the classroom.  This could include helping with reading and literacy programs, mathematics groups, technology, craft, or by offering expertise in a particular area of interest, such as Indigenous Education or Music.
