What We Offer

At St John the Evangelist Catholic Primary School, we provide a vibrant Catholic co-educational education so that each child finds meaning and purpose through continual growth in faith and improvement in learning.

We work in partnership with parents to provide a quality, Catholic education for our students. We aim to nurture each child’s faith experience while recognising and catering for their individual needs and challenging them to grow, adapt and positively engage in their learning.
