Chaplain's Comments

Fr Gaetan Pereira - College Chaplain

All religions try to make some sense of what has been going on in history, and try to understand history as being laden with meaning. Christianity does this: Catholicism does this:  we at John XXIII College try to do it in a small way, in our campus, in our class room and in our outdoor experience.

Today our Year 12’s are heading off to their annual retreat Read More

Around the Primary

Antoinette De Pinto
Head of Primary

We have come to the end of the first full week of school and the students have settled well into their classes and routines. The Kindy children are enjoying exploring their new learning environment and the PrePrimary children have begun coming to school for the whole day! 

The rest of the primary school has been busy completing various literacy and numeracy activities and our students in Years 3-6 have had a wonderful time cooling off in the pool during their swimming lessons. Read More

Record passes in Science for the second year running!

Gerard McCann - Science Learning Area Coordinator

Whilst we promote good Christian values such as humility at John XXIII College, one cannot allow the remarkable achievements of our Science students to go unrecognised in the wider community. For the second consecutive year our students have made massive gains compared to other schools in the State and have pulled away from the median score by quite some margin. Read More
