Mission Statement

Mission for Catholic Education in the Diocese of Lismore

Catholic education exists for the saving mission of the Church. This mission is expressed in animated and identifiably Catholic learning communities immersed in the presence of Christ and serving His Church. These communities promote the communication of Truth, an abundance of life for all and service. In so doing they engage the hearts and minds of students leading them more deeply into the life of Christ and the Church, so they can achieve the ‘Fullness of Life’.”

Vision Statement and Belief Statements

St John’s College Woodlawn, as a Christ centred learning community, is inspired by the Holy Spirit to live the Gospel way of life, and to witness faith, hope, love and service in the way of Mary.


Our School Motto is: Tenete Traditiones

“Therefore, hold fast to the traditions which you have learned, whether by word or example.”

Thessalonians 2:15
