Our amazing staff place the needs of the child first and we collaboratively make decisions that ensure the most supportive and encouraging learning environments are achieved for your child. Your child’s confidence and passion for learning is our priority.
At St John’s, we believe all children are creative designers, and we encourage curiosity through innovation. We blend the critical skills required to be successful in literacy and numeracy with the creative elements of design thinking and project-based-learning. Our goal is to develop confident, self-directed learners who engage in deep learning in both formal and informal learning styles.
We strongly believe in the power of students taking risks in their learning and failing forward. We support our students to learn from mistakes and empower them to build resilience and confidence through overcoming challenges.
We believe in the power of speaking life into one another. Our staff set high expectations for positive student interaction. We guide positive socialisation though restorative practices based on Christ-centred approaches.
We value the knowledge and individual strength of our staff. We have designed a student support network that encourages communication and collaboration between our students, parents, teachers, external professionals, learning coaches and our learning enhancement specialist. We know each child has individual needs and we professionally provide targeted support to positively impact growth in our students.
The Zones of Regulation teaches students scaffolded skills toward developing self-awareness of their feelings/internal state and utilize a variety of tools and strategies for mindfulness, sensory integration, movement, thinking strategies, wellness, and healthy connection with others.
