Mission Statement & Core Beliefs


Mission Statement

At St John Vianney's we share in the mission of Christ. Our school is a place where Christian values and beliefs permeate, resulting in a climate where every child feels safe, secure, accepted and loved.

We belong to a Catholic community which is enriched and enlivened by its long history and tradition. This enables us to provide a spirit of welcome and acceptance to all, and uphold the dignity and worth of each person.

The curriculum offered at the school reflects our belief that life experiences must be acknowledged as we endeavour to meet student needs. Our teaching is a witness to the Gospel message and the students are encouraged to reach their full potential and become independent and responsible learners.

St John Vianney’s core beliefs about learning

  • Effective learning is profoundly influenced by the quality of relationships existing amongst children, teachers and parents.
  • Effective learning occurs when teachers respond to individual differences amongst children, and employ a flexible range of teaching strategies.
  • Effective learning is enhanced when children experience success.
  • Effective learning is enhanced when children take responsibility for their own learning.
  • Effective learning is supported by high and realistic expectations.
  • Effective learning is fostered by the critical reflection of both teachers and learners.
  • Effective learning is facilitated when supported by appropriate resources – both human and material.
  • Effective learning needs an environment that is safe, nurturing and stimulating.
  • Effective learning is meaningful and relevant.
