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.

Reconciliation Action Planhttp://www.sjv.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/Reconciliation-Action-Plan.aspxReconciliation Action Plan<p></p><p>One of our Annual School Goals is to develop and implement a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) for our school. A RAP is a formal statement of commitment to reconciliation. It focuses on engaging all students, staff and members of our community with the importance of reconciliation, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories and cultures.<br><br>It is essential to highlight the place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia’s reconciliation journey, and explicitly point to the significance of recognising and respecting the histories, cultures and contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians as part of our shared national story and identity.<br><br>Through our RAP, St John Vianney’s aims to contribute to reconciliation by:<br></p><ul dir="ltr"><li dir="ltr"><p>building and encouraging relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, communities, organisations, and the broader Australian community</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>fostering and embedding respect for the world’s longest surviving cultures and communities.​<br><br></p></li></ul><p><strong>This video explains how a RAP can advance Reconciliation</strong><br></p><p></p><div class="ms-rtestate-read ms-rte-embedcode ms-rte-embedil ms-rtestate-notify"><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/-C902ZZarFE" frameborder="0"></iframe> </div><p><br></p><p>​<br></p><p>​<br><br></p>
Parent Workshophttp://www.sjv.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/Parent-Workshop.aspxParent Workshop<p>I would like to draw your attention to an upcoming parent workshop on Wednesday 3 March at 6:30pm. It is a workshop to support families to understand learning difficulties. We have engaged the services of SPELD to deliver this parent session. I would really encourage you to come along for this free parent session even if your child does not have a learning difficulty as there will be valuable strategies and learnings for everyone. Together with P & F we are looking to have one parent session a term on a variety of topics to support the important role we all have as parents.​</p>
