Learning & Teaching

From the Classrooms

So much shared and incidental learning happens in all aspects of school life at St John’s, and the second semester has been no different, from learning about caring for our environment & growing things in our Kitchen garden, celebrating and supporting those students receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, creating exhibits for the Art Show, participating in interschool Winter sports and being involved in whole school team events like athletics and marching on Grandparents’ Day.
Our students have recently experienced being part of a wider community by supporting the Socktober Fundraising efforts of Caritas, competing in the Lions Club Public Speaking Competition, participating in the Remembrance Day Service and in December will visit Kilara Hostel and the associated Nursing Home, to delight residents with Christmas Carols and a chat.
We have really enjoyed getting to know our new Foundation students for 2024 during our recent Prep Orientation Program and we look forward to them joining our school in 2024.
The initial weeks of school are a time of familiarisation, learning class routines and school-wide expectations, which allows students across the school to become confident in their surrounds and learning capabilities.
