Student Leadership

At St John's, we believe that each individual is blessed with God given gifts that should be nurtured and shared for the benefit of the whole community. All students should have the opportunity to develop leadership capacity through the development of skills and qualities centred on the servant leadership model of Jesus and lived Gospel values.

All students are encouraged to become involved in as many leadership opportunities as possible with the hope of not only developing the whole person, but also contributing to the school community. We encourage students and teachers to choose the best representatives who promote our school vision, strive to achieve our school mission and who uphold our school values and motto.
