Hi, I'm Patrick and I am very lucky to be working in the One Hub in 2023!

I have had such a great year of learning and connecting with the St. John’s community this year and am excited to continue this journey next year. 

As an educator I place children’s wellbeing at the heart of everything I do. I am passionate about children exploring their world and interests through discovery and I believe in bringing fun, humour and love into learning. 

When I'm not at school, I love to listen to music, dance and sing along. I also love playing soccer and footy with my friends.

Hello! My name is Jessie. I joined the lovely St John’s community midway through 2022. I have been an educator for a couple of years, but before completing my Masters in teaching, I worked as a botanist. 


I’m looking forward to continuing to build strong relationships with all our children and their families. I’m passionate about creating a safe, kind and supportive environment for learning where all children feel that their interests and unique perspectives are valued. 

When I’m not at school, you’ll find me spending time with my husband Jonny and boys Bede, Charlie and Luka. We love playing music together, completing DIY projects and doing plenty of gardening on our block of land near Daylesford.

Hello, my name is Tanya and I am grateful and excited to be joining the wonderful St John’s community in 2023. You will find me exploring and learning in the One Hub alongside Patrick, Jessie and Nidhi. As an educator I value creating a sense of community and belonging within the classroom. Creating an environment that is supportive and collaborative helps the students to foster meaningful learning.


Growing up in Melbourne’s West I have been privileged to see the growth and change over the years in the local communities. In my spare time, I love exploring new local cafés and restaurants! I am passionate about Performing Arts, Pilates, reading, traveling and most importantly visiting local parks with my son. I love affirmations and always try to see the positive in situations. I am very excited to be joining the St John’s community in 2023 and learning alongside the students and educators.

Hi, I’m Pam.


I have had the pleasure of being part of the St John’s Learning Community for many years.  During this time, I have had many different roles as needed by the school.


Currently, I am the Literacy Enhancement Educator.


I particularly enjoy reading. I love sharing my passion and knowledge of reading with my students.


I’m looking forward to working with my new students. I’m also looking forward to working with Hub Educators and Co-Educators. I believe that working together, sharing knowledge and ideas is a great way to help our students.


At home, you will find me spending time with my family … my husband Rob and my mum Marie.


I enjoy gardening, walking, going to the movies and even trying to catch a fish or two!!!


I’m looking forward to meeting with you and working with you next year.
