Principal's Welcomehttp://www.sjv.qld.edu.au/About%20Our%20School/Pages/Principal%27s-Welcome.aspx, Principal's WelcomePrincipal's WelcomeOn 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 Dantus Thottahil​ 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.

Australia Reads Campaignhttp://www.sjv.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/Australia-Reads-Campaign.aspxAustralia Reads Campaign<p>​This year, the Australia Reads campaign starts on 1 November. It invites Australians to share and celebrate the joys of reading for twelve days. The main event, the Australian Reading Hour, is on Thursday 12 November. It is often difficult for busy parents to read for their own enjoyment so why not take this opportunity to make some time for yourself. At school we make time for sustained reading, it is a skill that takes time to develop and as with anything, practice improves the skill. This can be continued at home, drop everything and read together for a set time, whatever works for the family. Reading has the added benefits of reducing stress and helping us escape for a moment or two. So, join us and the rest of Australia for Australia Reads. Your child will bring home a book mark in their library bag next week, pop it on the fridge as a reading reminder.<br></p><p><br><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/news-events/PublishingImages/australiareads.jpg" alt="australiareads.jpg" style="margin:5px;" />​<br></p>
