'At Saint John the Apostle school we strive to foster children's learning in a Christ-centred, safe and positive school environment. We seek to recognise and provide for the needs of each person so that individual potential can be realised and human dignity is promoted. We encourage
co-operation in order to empower all members of the school community, so that together we build God's kingdom with Strength and Gentleness.'
