Matthew.pngThank you for taking the time to consider St John the Apostle for your child. Our school mission is to ‘be on earth the heart of God’. We know that the work we do with every child and family is very important.

At St John the Apostle we recognise that each young person in our community is unique and we share a responsibility to know them, nurture them and help them grow. Our community strives to offer a safe and caring learning environment and provides opportunities, challenges and celebrations that assist all students in creating a positive future for themselves and their community.

We welcome your further interest in our community. Please feel free to call the school 02 6258 3592 to organise a time to discuss how St John the Apostle Primary School can best support your child's future learning.

“Matthew is a great principal. He embraces Catholic values properly and provides great leadership.” St John the Apostle Parent

“Our classroom teacher is a breath of fresh air. She could step back and look at the root cause of our child’s behaviour rather than just looking at the behaviour itself. She had the bigger goal of trying to engage our child and make our child feel a greater sense of self-esteem.” St John the Apostle Parent

“The school sets high expectations. My oldest child transitioned to secondary school well prepared.” St John the Apostle Parent

“The most important thing about the school is my children love going. They will learn if they love it. They love it. They feel part of the community.” St John the Apostle Parent
