About Us

John the Baptist opened in 1989 with eighty-six children (K-2 single stream). The staff consisted of three classroom teachers, a part-time teacher/librarian, the secretary and Principal. Originally planned as a two stream school, it soon became clear this would be insufficient to cater for the rapid development in the Bonnyrigg area. This resulted in John the Baptist becoming a four stream school in 2000.

Our school motto is "Together we proclaim Jesus". Our community recognises the presence of Christ in each person and its implication as we interact with each other. We seek to bring to each child a knowledge of Jesus and His teachings, endeavouring to assist each individual to love Him and follow Him.
