Hi, I'm Patrick and I am very lucky to be working in the One Hub in 2024!

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.

Lien Barnabas


My name is Lien, and I am one of the educators in One Hub.

I strive to continue learning and growing in the ever-evolving world of education. I feel fortunate to be part of the St. John’s community and to work with educators who place children at the center of everything we do, striving to meet the individual needs of each child.

As an educator, I love learning about each child’s story, listening to their voice, and celebrating the uniqueness in every child. I enjoy working alongside the children to guide them through their own inquiry and to create a safe space for children to question, reflect, solve problems, and make mistakes.

Outside of school, I love spending time with my daughters—Alicia, Emily, Madeline and our dog, Peggy. We enjoy going out for dinner, being outdoors, and spending time with our friends and family.


Milly Siebring

Hello, St John’s!  My name is Milly and I’m a new co-educator in the One Hub in 2024. I started as a “fill in” at St John’s in term 4, 2024, and loved it so much I didn’t want to leave! I love the way children are encouraged to be creative and autonomous learners at St John’s. As well as this, they are taught to be respectful and environmentally conscious members of their community: two very important traits in our modern world. 

As an educator, I believe each child should have an environment that makes them feel safe, curious and ready to learn. 

Out of St John’s, I enjoy seeing my family and friends, reading, walking, gardening, yoga, listening to music and camping. I am also studying a Bachelor of Speech Pathology at ACU.

Toula Kalantzis


My name is Toula and I am a co-educator assisting the students and teachers in the Grade 1 and Grade 5/6 Hubs.


I enjoy the collaborative way that students learn at St. Johns, it enables them to expand their curiosity and knowledge as they share and exchange individual ideas with their peers. 

I have experienced many wonderful moments with children at St. Johns when their critical thinking has taken effect and they have problem solved an idea that they once thought was tricky. 


When I am not working at St. Johns, I am studying for my Bachelor of Early Childhood Education and being a busy mum to my 3 boys aged, 12, 9 and 5. I also own and run a small online business where I hand make personalised paper décor for children and homes. 

I love to unwind with ocean swimming, long bike rides and walks, particularly along Victoria’s beautiful surf coast.
