Welcome Message from the Principal
Welcome to the St John’s Regional College website where you will gain a sense of the many opportunities that are available to our students in a full range of academic, artistic, sporting and other co-curricular pursuits.
As a College, we are inspired by the work of our founders the De La Salle Brothers and Presentation Sisters who emphasised God’s unconditional love in their work with young people. It is this love and belief in the dignity of each child that motivates us to provide an environment of both high support and high challenge; a place where students will learn to value excellence and the work ethic that is required to achieve their full potential.
We pride ourselves on knowing our students well, understanding that the relationships between teachers and students are foundational in developing confident and successful learners. To assist this aim our Vertical House System allows families and students to journey through their six years at St John’s with the same teachers as House Leader and Learning Mentor. We learn much about the needs of our students through this partnership between home and school and encourage our parents to participate in their sons’ and daughters’ learning at every opportunity.
As a vibrant multicultural learning community, St John’s provides students with a range of subject offerings and pathways including Vocational Education & Training (VET), the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) and the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE). In providing for all pathways we ensure that our students develop the skills that will be essential for their success in a rapidly changing world.
Welcome once again, I hope you enjoy browsing through our website. Should you require further information about St John’s or wish to take a tour, please contact the College by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone 8793 2000 with your request.
