At St John XXIII Catholic College, we aim to encourage every student to discover early in life how awesome they can be!

St John XXIII Catholic College is a place where curiosity, imagination and love of learning are treasured. School is a place of wonder, exploration and endless possibilities.

St John XXIII learners are equipped with tools to engage in meaningful learning experiences which they use to measure their progress. St John XXIII Learners have a growth mindset, they know where they are at in their learning and what they need to do to improve.




Let your kids discover awesome! Educated in life, for life!





Students at this stage of development are primed to make connections of concepts, knowledge and skills across different subject areas.





Our School of Curiosity students are proof that school can be fun, stimulating and a growing experience. 

Our learning spaces are places of curiosity, friendship, order, respect and hard work. While there is major focus on each student acquiring a sound knowledge of literacy and numeracy skills, students learn contemporary IT skills, grow in their knowledge of the arts and most importantly, grow in Catholic character.

As students progress to upper years of primary they are talking, visualising, articulating ideas and sharing new learnings in all sorts of creative ways.

The emphasis is on feedback. The learning environments for these years are designed for the students to visualise their thinking, share their learning and for others to give their feedback in a way where they can talk, move and stand up.







Students are connected to the real world, prepared for success as lifelong learners

Having grown and matured through the initial years of adolescence, students at these ages are beginning to settle down. In response to this, students engage in a personalised learning program that seeks genuine dialogue to challenge students to raise their own questions, create their own ideas, seek solutions to real world challenges and explore their interests and passions.

Project Based learning (PBL) engages students with real world problem-solving. Students develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, creativity and communication skills. Every day, students are strengthening their academic mindset with the skills they need to take responsibility for their own learning journey.




Learners become creative critical thinkers through personalised and accelerated programs. Learners become connected and communicate through real-life experiences. Through this learning journey they soon discover how awesome they can be.



We’ll work with your child to find out how they learn best.


Through inquiry students are immersed in the learning process, connecting their learning to the real world.


We’ll work closely with your child as they grow in responsibility for their learning.
