We hope that everyone has well and truly settled into life at St John’s for 2020! There’s a great buzz around our community as new friendships are formed and stories are shared. We’re looking forward to gathering together as a community at our Welcome Picnic, please see below for further details. A reminder that our first Prayer Gathering is taking place on Friday 14th Feb at 2:45 pm, please join us if you are available.
Our Parent Social Media Policy is available on our website and is also linked below for your convenience. We ask that all parents take the time to read over this policy as it is integral to how we communicate online.

Envision Hands – our community contribution
Envision Hands is a not-for-profit community initiative that uses 3D printing to turn plastic waste into mechanical hands and arms for kids, with the products being sent around the world.
Harry and his little sister (with a little help from Mum, Louise) delivered the bottle tops collected by our families at St John’s to Envision Hands in Werribee. They met Joe, who designs the hands and got to see the process of sorting, shredding and how they turn the lids into a plastic filament used by 3D printers.
Envision Hands have now achieved their target for lid collection so are asking people to hold off collecting for now.
Thank you Harry, and your family, for helping those less fortunate than ourselves through sustainable initiatives like that of Envision Hands – well done!
We have many dates coming, please ensure you are on Flexibuzz and check the calendar on our website for upcoming events. Do you need a paper copy? Please collect one from our office.
