A St John’s education is an exciting and stimulating journey where students learn in a respectful and fun environment and benefit from three core elements of learning and development.
Curriculum – where they develop core competencies, skills and knowledge
Co-curriculum – where they can pursue excellence in the arts, music and sport
Wellbeing – where they can develop leadership and life skills and understanding through a holistic approach to their social, emotional and spiritual needs
Our mission at St John’s is to turn their inherent curiosity into a passion for lifelong learning and we do this in a myriad of ways. Our teachers cater to each students’ needs, abilities and learning styles resulting in a community of happy, confident and engaged learners. Throughout the College, our students are encouraged to seek out the International Baccalaureate (IB) Learner Profiles in their core activities – to be inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective.
Foremostly, our students are engaged in stimulating and exciting activities that develop a love of learning and build skills that will serve them well to face the challenges of the future. We are proud to have high achieving intellectuals, athletes and artists in our student body, as well as those committed to making a positive impact on the world. We can rely on our students to turn thought into meaningful action. As they experience success, their confidence will grow, as will their resilience as they turn failures into opportunities.
By attending a co-educational school St John’s students are experiencing the real world. They benefit from both male and female mentors and understand the collaboration both genders create when interacting together. At St John’s, we recognise and value every student from Kindergarten to Year 12 as an individual. We believe that each student’s personality, contribution and unique sense of perspective brings a richness to our school community that benefits us all. Demonstrating our core values, our students act with love, courage, community and justice, as they challenge themselves to reach intellectual and personal excellence.
Developing Student Leaders is a core component of our educational philosophy at St John’s Anglican College. We believe that If students can practice leadership during their time at school, then they have the successful leadership foundations to transition as respectful, responsible and community-focused individuals when they graduate. It’s a life skill that enables students to be well-rounded and is something they can apply to a variety of situations at home, work, sport and more.
At St John’s we see leadership as serving our community. It’s a concept we call Servant Leadership and to this end our student leaders attend to meeting the needs of our student body, staff, parents and wider College stakeholders.
The Student Leadership team, comprising of all Student Leaders, has a responsibility to fulfill this role as well as their specific area of responsibility. Student leadership positions are available in both the Junior and Secondary schools including Junior, Middle and Senior Student Leaders all requiring a high degree of individual responsibility in upholding the ideals and values of the College.
Student leadership is cultivated through personal development and opportunities to practice and use leadership capabilities in the learning environment. Competencies developed include project planning, organisational skills, public speaking, event management, communication, team building, problem solving and more.
The qualities we wish our student leaders to uphold:
- Commitment to the College’s curricular and co-curricular programs
- Pride in oneself and the College
- Enthusiasm and the ability to motivate others
- Ability to organise and manage people
- High levels of interpersonal skills
- Good communications skills
- Respect for others
