Frequently Asked Questions
Do children have to be Catholic to attend St John the Apostle?
We accept enrolments from students who identify from many faith backgrounds as well as students who do not identify with any particular faith background. As a Catholic school, we express our Catholic faith and tradition through the Gospel values and charism that underpins our daily lives at school, our celebrations and our Religious Education curriculum. Parents enrolling their children at St John's are asked to support the ethos of the school.
How big are the classes at St John the Apostle?
With two classes at each year level, our average class size is 24 students. Each class teacher is supported by Classroom Support Assistants at various times through the week, helping to support the individual needs of students.

What are the fees?
Catholic systemic schools are a low fee paying option for families. While Catholic schools charge fees, it is the policy of Catholic education that every child should have the opportunity to attend a Catholic school regardless of their financial situation and therefore families are welcome to apply for a fee reduction should this be their need at the time.
Our fees structure for 2018 can be found here.
