Principal’s Message

We, the community of St John Fisher, bid you and your child a very warm welcome. We trust that your association with us will be an enjoyable and rewarding one.

Ours is a Catholic systemic school looking to work with the parents of the St John Fisher Faith Community. Our basic belief is that God loves us and that we are asked to respond to Him in love, thanks and praise. 

In our school we fully support the teachings of the Catholic Church. The truth of our faith is imparted by dedicated, conscientious Catholic teachers, in an atmosphere of Christian growth and development.

Christian courtesy is emphasised and pupils are encouraged to live as active members of the faith community through our key values of Respect, Responsibility and Reconciliation. St. John Fisher Catholic School, by its nature, has a spiritual dimension and it is this spirituality which influences all aspects of school life, vision and mission, staff selection, student interaction, academic pursuits, sport, health, discipline, fees and parent involvement.

While caring for the spiritual growth of our children we are also concerned with academic success. It is our endeavour to meet the needs of our children and to assist them in attaining the highest possible level of which they are capable in their academic skills.

The educational and religious goals of our Catholic school are more fully realised when there is a shared commitment. We hope that parents, at different levels at different times, will be active in their involvement, participation and partnership.

May we all enjoy a spiritually rewarding partnership.

Yours sincerely,

Barry Shanley
