Principal’s Welcome


The hallmark of Saint John’s is the special bond that boys and families form with each other and the way in which they stay in touch in the years after school.

At St John’s we are committed to our mission, the Marist Charism and forming young boys into fine young men. While our achievements in academics, sports, arts and culture are external indications of a fine school, it is not what the essence of our College is all about. 

We are a Marist Catholic school and we are unashamedly proud of that. Our Marist ethos is not an isolated part of our school culture, rather it is our culture and reason why St John’s is such a fine place to be connected to. 

The future is full of promise for our young men. They will have opportunities that we cannot imagine. At St John’s we provide first class education, a comprehensive arts programme and an outstanding sports programme within a richly diverse community. We ensure that your son not only achieves in school but has a skill set that is relevant to the world in which he lives, now and into the future. 

At Saint John’s College, we are ‘Preparing Young Men For Life’.
