Our School

Our Mission, Vision and Strategic Intent

St John the Baptist Primary School has a proud history of providing quality Catholic Education for students from Koo Wee Rup and its surrounding districts for over 80 years. We pride ourselves on providing a high standard of education with modern facilities whilst maintaining a country appeal and a personal knowledge of both our students, and their families.

Our Mission

“I come that you may have life and have it to the full” John 10:10

Our mission is to provide a high-quality Catholic education where young people are supported to thrive in the world. At our school they will come to know of the love of God and see themselves as created in God’s image. St John’s will be a place where spiritual accompaniment will be offered and opportunities for the development of a personal, active faith provided. Our students will be supported to engage with their broader social context, and develop a contemporary knowledge and understanding of faith and the Catholic tradition.
