100 Years Celebration of St John's Primary School
St John's School began in 1920 with approximately 47 children on the roll. The students were taught inside the St John's Church building by the Sisters of Mercy. In 1932 a separate school building was erected facing Errard Street (now the Princes Highway). The school grew with various buildings being added over the years.
The Sisters of Mercy were in charge of the school until 1989 when responsibility was handed over to lay administration.
In the mid-2000s a decision was made to move the school to a larger, more suitable site. A new school opened in 2011 at Russell Street.
Our school is celebrating 100 Years of Education (across two sites) in 2020.
