Welcome

“Dominus Illuminatio Mea” – The Lord is my light (Psalm 27)

To educate each girl in a safe, supportive, Christian environment, to be a confident, lifelong learner.

St John’s Girls’ School is a school with wonderful traditions, strong values and a warm family spirit.

Our values are the important qualities we try to live by and show in the way we go about our work and in the relationships we have with others in our school.

St John’s was established in 1917 by the St John’s Anglican Church.  After the depression, when the Church could no longer support the school, a new school board was formed and St John’s Girls’ School became independent.  In the late 1980’s, the roll began to drop so in 1990 St John’s became an integrated school, retaining its Christian base.

Over the years the school has grown and developed into a warm, caring school well known for its confident, articulate students who have a strong work ethic and who are well rounded individuals. The small size means that every girl is known by everyone and is cared for. Pastoral care is important.

We are proud of our school and would welcome the opportunity to share it with you and invite you to visit our school to see it in action.
