Principal's Welcome

​​On behalf of the St John Vianney's school community I warmly welcome you to our school. We have a wonderful partnership with our Parish Priest, Fr Frank Jones and the Parish of St John Vianney's.

The ministry of education is one that is shared between parents, teachers and the wider community. As Principal, I will support you in nurturing and promoting the growth of our children as we reflect the life and mission of Jesus, promoting a vibrant spiritual life through learning, prayer and liturgy. My commitment to Catholic Education is lived out through my active involvement in Parish and school life and living out the Gospel values through our words and actions. I have a passion for living out the work of Nano Nagle by working with the poor and marginalised.

Principal.jpgIn my role, I work with staff and parents to engage each child in their own learning, creating an environment in which teaching and learning is purposeful, relevant, innovative and collaborative. It is important for me to confirm that at St John Vianney's we will always hold the highest expectation for children in attaining their academic best and developing the whole child.

Our school has a rich tradition in the Bayside of Brisbane and we have contemporary facilities with the best teachers and staff to support every child and family at school. I welcome the opportunity to meet you and your family.

In God We Trust.
Katherine McKay
