Our Crest

 

The school crest, simple in design, represents a challenge to us all.

It invites us to work for the Kingdom of God, our heritage, won for us through the Glory of the Cross.

We are encouraged to advance the Kingdom of God, our kingdom, through our daily work in accordane with gospel values 

The name of our partron, St John Vianney, is featured on the crest to encourage us, for he was a simple man whose superiors initally thought would amount to little.

Through his simple way of life, where in his aim was to do ordinary things extraordinarily well, he achieved a high degree of excellence and drew many people to a life in the Kingdom.

Our Prayer

 

Dear God,

Thankyou for creating me just the way I am.

Help me to listen and learn today

and to be patient,

kind and caring towards others

just like St John Vianney.

 

Bless all our teachers and families

and help us share our many gifts and talents

with one another.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord

Amen.

 

The St John Vianney's School Prayer was written by the Murray family.
