St John’s in the Community
Students at St John’s were provided with many opportunities to take part in ANZAC Day Services and activities as the nation paused this year to celebrate 100 years since the ill-fated Gallipoli landing in 1915. Our community takes seriously our commitment to empower all our students to be people of influence throughout their lives and on significant occasions such as this, fine role models held in high esteem in public life are there before our children at all stages of their St John’s educational journey. Students actively participated in cadets, marches and services in both city and local areas in addition to the services held at both primary and secondary campuses prior to the day. At these school services members of our own College community who have served are honoured, providing the opportunity for strong and supportive bonds to form within the community.
While many schools have been quiet places during the past holiday break it was business as usual for St John’s students who, in addition to our vacation care programs, were attending sport clinics, dance camp, strings workshops and the Duke of Edinburgh Camp each in their own way providing them with greater opportunities to develop their confidence and to be personally empowered.
