Our children are blessed with exceptional and highly regarded teachers at John Paul College. We’re proud to share the achievements of two Senior School teachers whose articles were recently published in professional journals.
We had some very excited Year 4 students today as they took ownership of their brand new ACER Switch Alpha 12s. Staff of the e-Learning and Techsphere teams delivered over 100 new notebooks. Students were given instruction on safety and care and learned how to log on and connect to the Microsoft store.
John Paul College is immensely proud of the graduating Class of 2016.

The Diploma Pathway Programme provides our Year 11 and 12 students with industry recognised skills and knowledge, real world work placements and a high level of employability skills along with a range of nationally recognised qualifications in business. It provides them with a fast track towards university with students completing a Certificate III in Business throughout Year 11 and a Certificate IV in Business in Year 12.
On the ninth of November, John Paul College celebrated another year of academic and co-curricular achievements at our annual Speech Night and Celebration of Excellence. The highest academic honour that can be bestowed on a John Paul College student is The Munns Prize for the Dux of the College.
