Parent Buddy Program

A new school is a big change for everyone. Our Parent Buddy Program is coordinated by our Parents & Friends Association, and aims to connect new families coming into the school with current school families.


The canteen is based at the Secondary Campus and opens before the start of the school day, serving breakfast and coffee, and closes after lunch. Purchases can be made in cash at the canteen, and lunch orders can be placed in advance by creating a St John’s Grammar Flexischools account.

Medical and Personal Information

All student medical details are stored within the School’s Consent2Go portal. Parents will be sent an email at the beginning of the school year, directing them as to how to update these details.

Personal contact details can be updated via the parent portal.
