Welcome to John Paul II Catholic Primary School . Our school is located in historic Clarence Plains, on Mockridge Road. The school was founded in 1983 to serve the needs of Clarence Plains, Lauderdale and the surrounding areas.
Today the school has an enrolment of approximately 150 students and a reputation for excellent teaching and outstanding pastoral care. Aspiration to continuously improve academic standards and competitive sporting teams feature prominently in the life of our school. The school caters for students from Kindergarten to Grade 6.
Our educational vision is modelled on the values found in the life of Pope John Paul II. The school motto is To Love and Serve The Lord in Peace. We strive to make our motto a living truth in our community. Our school is based on a rich Christian tradition as revealed in the Gospels and the teachings of the Catholic Church.
Classes are conducted in a modern education setting and the school makes every effort to ensure that methods and equipment meet the requirements of best practice. With spacious grounds, enormous opportunities for students to become involved in a wide range of activities, John Paul II provides a rich learning environment vital for early school years.
On behalf of all staff and students I welcome you to our web site and trust that it provides you with both the information you seek, and an insight into who we are and how we operate.
Mr Jim Ireland.
