Welcome - 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.
