Being smaller than our competitor schools, we are a close-knit community, giving our girls a real sense of comfort and belonging.
Down to Earth
We have real depth and substance to our characters. We understand what makes us special, but we use these qualities to serve others, rather than elevate ourselves.
Caring & Nurturing Environment
We cherish our girls and genuinely care about their wellbeing and futures. We aim to create a safe space for growth, by offering support, encouragement and acceptance.
We enrich our girls with a balanced, quality education that provides a solid foundation for their futures and equips them to become leaders in their chosen fields.
We are gentle-natured but also bold, brave and resilient. We have both grace and grit. We exude kindness, compassion and empathy, as well as strength, courage and confidence.
We Cherish Individuality
Each girl is special in her own, unique way. We celebrate all talents, passions and achievements that our girls pursue at, and outside of, ST JOHN'S D.S.G.
