At St John's College we provide quality education in an environment that nurtures children in their Catholic faith.

St John's College is an outstanding inclusive co-educational Catholic High School administered by Brisbane Catholic Education.  St John's has a current enrolment of 616 students and is staffed by professional, experienced, passionate and dedicated teachers.  St John's has been established for thirty four years on its present site and seventy three years as a Catholic secondary school in Nambour, and has a fine tradition of scholastic, cultural, sporting and extra-curricaul success.

Our 2013 OP results were excellent again for St John's students and this has been well documented both here on our web page, Facebook page and Twitter.  Listed below are percentages achieved by year 12 OP students 2013.

  • 99% received a QCE, VET, SAT or IBD;
  • 18% of students were between OP 1-5; 44% of students rated between OP 1-10; 77% of students rated between  1-15;
  • 32 students completed a Cert II and 19 students completed a Cert III and 5 students completed university subjects.

These are outstanding results again and indicate the positive and dedicated education at St John's.

Also in 2013 students were involved in Arts Week, beginning with an Art Exhibition and concluding with a spectacular music performance with "Friends of Room 12" at the Nambour Civic Centre.  There is an annual Theatresports competition and in 2013 St John's had two teams who made it to the semi-finals in the Brisbane competition.  St John's had a student reach State and National swimming levels and also a State Equestrian representative and numerous other students reached State and Regional levels in various sports.  We also had our first National Pierre de Coubertin winner who travelled overseas to represent Australia at the World Youth Forum.  St John's received a NAB Grant to coordinate and run an Australian wide Schools Film Festival, where student art works were selected to tour Queensland in exhibitions and many more extraordinary highlights.  In 2013 the students performed a brilliant performance of Oscar Wilde's favourites called "Love Gone Wilde".
