Welcome to St John's College website . . .
This website provides a brief insight into the holistic nature of our College and a extensive resource for our students and their parents. It includes an overview of our Special Character - who we are as a community, what we stand for and how our holistic vision extends to student achievement and support in Pastoral Care, Academia, Sport, Arts and Culture. By expanding our vision to these particular spheres, we believe we can develop a young man who is balanced, well-rounded and able to face a competitive secular world with confidence. This is the vision of a ‘St. John’s Man’. St. John’s College is a hidden jewel. It has evolved through the vision of the Marist Fathers and provides a first-class education as the only Catholic Boys’ School in the Hawke’s Bay. We provide a stimulating educational programme with an emphasis on literacy and numeracy, an excellent range of sporting opportunities, activities to celebrate our cultural heritage and a great house system which fosters school spirit and competition.

COMBINED HISTORY TRIP TO VIETNAM
September 2017 St John's College and Sacred Heart College have made plans to travel to Vietnam in Sept 2017. This is a wonderful opportunity to engage with another culture, experience the history, traditions and customs and travel to some wonderful spots within Vietnam. It is part of the Travel Bound Company and a great way to see the world. If you are interested in this opportunity for your son and they are currently in Years 11 and 12, please contact Mrs McFarland at SJC.
