Our School - About the School

About The School

St John the Baptist is a Catholic Primary School catering for  students from Prep to Year 6. It is nestled in the suburb of Ferntree Gully, Victoria and enjoys a positive partnership with St John the Baptist Parish. Our school strives to build a vibrant, creative and faith filled Catholic school community with a strong emphasis on pastoral care.

Our current community enjoys a well resourced and progressive learning environment  and dedicated and committed staff who work and walk alongside our students and their families in the true spirit of Catholic education. We remain respectful and appreciative of the legacy of the founding religious sisters who forged the foundations for which the school stands today.

With a commitment to educational excellence, St John the Baptist facilitates student learning through the employment of excellent teaching and learning practices coupled with the use of technologies which both engage and motivate enquiring minds.

Here at St John the Baptist we seek to create a respectful environment that enhances learning, nurtures our young and empowers our whole school community to authentically live out the faith that we proclaim.

To find out more about our community, we invite you to browse our website or contact the school for a personal tour.
