About our school

Inspired by Gospel values, John Paul College is committed to creating and maintaining an environment where all members of the College community experience a sense of belonging and are recognised as unique. We are attentive to the needs, goals and abilities of every student and offer a vibrant learning environment where each student is supported and challenged to achieve excellence. The College promotes the importance of wellbeing as the foundation to facilitating engagement, connection and learning. At the heart of the College is the desire for each student to flourish across religious, physical, cognitive, emotional and social domains. Students enjoy coming to school as their personal narrative is known, respected and valued. We provide a diverse and rich curriculum in all year levels to ensure students interests, talents and aspirations are catered for and nurtured. John Paul College offers parents, students and staff the opportunity to experience community life in a faith-filled environment. Each student is invited to develop their personal faith and the meaning and value in life through prayer, liturgy, retreats and other celebrations. Students volunteer on a number of social justice initiatives, including fundraising efforts and immersion programs to the Philippines and East Timor. We are very proud of our young people who, in their service to others, enrich both their own lives and those around them.
