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.

Prayerhttp://www.sjv.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/Prayer.aspxPrayer<p>​​Prayer is integral to the life of all Catholic schools and has the potential to nourish the spiritual growth of all members of our school community. Prayer provides the context and the resources for individuals and groups to celebrate their life and identity as members of the school and to nurture their relationship in faith and with God and with one another. We engage in prayer each day at school as a Catholic school and I encourage you to talk about your child’s prayer experiences at school.</p><p><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/news-events/PublishingImages/prayer.jpg" alt="prayer.jpg" style="margin:5px;" />​​​<br></p>
