Our School - Principals Welcome
Welcome to St John's Catholic College, Darwin! We hope as you navigate our website you gain an understanding of what an amazing school we are. St John's is unlike any other school in Australia -we care for students from an array of Aboriginal and Torres Strait communities across the Top End and beyond. We also have students from West Papua, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Sub Continent as well as many students from the greater Darwin area. This mix includes students from our Darwin community as well as a number of Defence Force families, who contribute to the most welcoming and accepting feeling of our College.
