Book A Tour

From the Principal

We understand that choosing the right school is one of the biggest decisions you will make for your family and at St John’s, we are here to welcome you and walk with you on that journey.

At St John’s you’ll find a small rural school that will soon become your second home. Our school is like one big extended family that has been in operation for over a hundred years. It’s amazing how generations of families have sent their children to St John’s to experience the warm, caring Christian environment we provide. Proud of our rich history and long-standing reputation, we honor our past whilst constantly innovating and moving forward with an IB PYP world class education.

Here at St John’s, all are welcome. We are inclusive. We understand that each child’s learning journey is unique, and that’s why we celebrate every milestone. At St John’s you’ll find wonder and joy as we challenge our students to engage deeply in their learning. We encourage our learners to grow into confident global citizens who are intellectually adventurous, ethically minded, and generous of heart and spirit. With small class sizes, we get to know each child and create individual learning pathways that enable them to flourish.

Our spacious outdoor learning and play spaces are impressive. From bush and nature play areas, two large sports fields, to the development of our community garden, our students are free to play, explore and contribute.

To find out more, book a tour and experience St John’s for yourselves.

We Are Providing an Environment for Our Students to Connect

We believe that we are more than just attractive classrooms and well-resourced facilities (which we are) but also that we are creating connections.

At St John’s Lutheran School we aim to encourage and support students to become the leaders of tomorrow, developing their God-given talents so that they may shape and enrich their world to make tomorrow a better place to be.

At St John’s, we see each member of our school community as someone unique, valuable, created and loved by God.
This understanding of the uniqueness of each child, motivates us to strive for the best, to care for each child, to develop the whole person physically, emotionally, spiritually and academically.


What our parents say

My child loves being involved in the school’s Peer Support Programme

‘There is a strong sense of community

‘There is greater acceptance of others even though they may be different

Students are able to learn responsibility for themselves and others by having the opportunity for more freedom with outdoor play

St John’s are good at looking at the student’s individual needs and requirements and quickly picking up on any issues


I really love our school. The lovely friendly inclusive family community, the child centred learning and our more than fabulous teachers (incl. the principal in that too 👌). 

But most importantly I love that the children that our school nurtures and produces are so kind, appreciative and friendly. I must say coordinating special menu again today and seeing all those lovely smiling faces tucking into their Lasagne and enjoying it, was such a lovely sight to see, as well as all their lovely comments. They are a truly beautiful bunch of children. So thanks St John’s staff for being a big part in creating this environment for our children to grow and learn in. You all do a top job.

Creating Connections

To further support our endeavour to provide an engaging environment for the ‘whole child’ to grow and blossom, we have a school Care Coordinator that is actively involved in all aspects of the school community. The network of Class Carers coordinated by our school Care Coordinator helps to build strong networks with our parents, students and staff. Parenting information along with social skill development and support in the area or grief and loss are other elements of our Pastoral Care program.
