Primary School


Primary (Prep to Year 6) CRICOS: 010139J

As your child enters the Primary years (Prep to Year 6) at John Paul College, our vision is to give your child a holistic education in a vibrant and stimulating environment that will provide your child with the foundations for success in life.

Every parent wants the best for their child. We absolutely share that goal. That’s why we walk alongside every student, as we help them explore, discover and grow to be more than they ever imagined.

We believe that education is an adventure, involving creativity, imagination and discovery. It is not enough to know anymore, it is our job to nurture and develop the skills that every young person will need to navigate our globalized world in the 21st Century.

We offer a personalised approach to learning
that challenges thinking, grows knowledge and develops meaningful relationships that inspires leadership in all students.

Through the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme we teach conceptual knowledge and understandings because we want our students to have insight to influence others, to show empathy and to embrace the beauty of humanity through action.

We believe that education is the art of human learning with a focus on developing individual character, spiritual depth, discipline and resilience in each of our students. Our innovative program fosters an acute awareness of our changing world and heightens sensitivity to real-world issues, contexts and challenges. We believe that some of the most important, yet hard to measure outcomes of education, are the essence of a meaningful life.

Everyone is someone unique at John Paul College. Our classes, our Specialist teachers, our School of Performing Arts and our large selection of co-curricular Sports and Activities purposefully and intentionally connect young hearts and minds to reach their potential and deepen their understanding and experiences that are provided within a dynamic world class curriculum.
