Where dreams begin.


Welcome to St John’s Lutheran Primary School.

For those who don’t know me, I’m Bundaberg born and bred and have a passion for our local community. I am committed to helping St John’s Lutheran Primary School provide the best primary school experience in Bundaberg and I have big dreams for every single one of the students at St John’s. I believe in their potential and know that with the right foundations and the right environment, children thrive. So much so, I really do believe that here at St John’s it’s… Where dreams begin.

Experiencing our school for the first time gives many parents a sense of relief and a feeling of confidence about the primary education of their children. They describe the friendly welcome, the respect and good manners shown by our students, and the genuine caring and personal attention our staff extend to their child, as stand out factors as to why St John’s Lutheran Primary School is the school they choose.

Of course we have more to offer than just those attributes. The Christian ethos that guides our teachers and our small school environment truly underpins a distinctive culture of learning and development that isn’t offered anywhere else in Bundaberg. Quality education, guided by the Australian Curriculum standards, is achieved and our NAPLAN results are testament to this. Students also benefit from a wide variety of extra-curricular programs, which all contribute to developing well-rounded children whose potential is encouraged.

If you are part of our school community we hope the information on our website keeps you informed and engaged, and if you are a prospective family, we do hope to see you at the school soon where I can personally meet you and take you on a guided tour.
