What We Offer

Give your child the best opportunity to develop academically, spiritually and socially.


St John Vianney's Primary is a welcoming Catholic community where Gospel values and beliefs are visible in all aspects of our school life. The genuine care and concern each student is shown is based on our faith community being one of love, which is characterised by justice, tolerance, forgiveness and respect for each other. This culture is the foundation upon which our students can develop and enjoy an enriching, challenging and fulfilling education.

Our school values quality learning and teaching, built on strong relationships between students, teachers and parents in a nurturing and stimulating environment. Students benefit from learning experiences that empower them to be responsible, reflective and independent lifelong learners in a safe environment, and where the use of up-to-date technology is integrated into classroom practice.

Our Mission in Christ

At St John Vianney's we share in the mission of Christ. Our school is a place where we aim for every child to feel safe, secure, accepted and loved. Students benefit from belonging to a Catholic community which is enriched and enlivened by its long history and tradition. 

The curriculum we offer reflects our belief that life experiences must be acknowledged as we endeavour to meet each student's 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.


Reaching out to those in need

Modelling and giving witness to the values of the Gospel is a focus at St John Vianney's Primary. Students are encouraged to live out these values in their daily interactions with everyone in our community and beyond. This is further witnessed by our support of many church and community based organisations. These include:

  • Caritas Australia's Project Compassion
  • St Vincent de Paul Society (food donations)
  • Australian Catholic Mission
  • Diocesan initiatives such as support for East Timor
