8.30am – 3.15pm


John XXIII College

The Year 6 students will represent the College and play in a variety of sports with the focus on participation; there are no shields or points awarded. It is about giving students the opportunity to compete against students from other primary schools, promoting fun and enjoyment, encouraging everyone to participate and highlighting the importance of fair play and healthy competition.

Family and friends are invited to attend the Years 3-6 Assembly on Friday 7 June at 8.45am in the Marist Auditorium. Students will receive Merit Certificates for their Academic achievements and Year 4 Green will present their item.

LifeLink Day 2019 will officially be launched on Wednesday 5 June 2019 during WA Week.

LifeLink Day provides a wonderful opportunity for students attending Catholic schools within the Archdiocese of Perth, to join together to show their collective support for the many Church social service agencies – agencies which on behalf of us all, reach out to provide practical care and direct assistance to thousands of people in need within the community each year.

The Marist Association of St Marcellin Champagnat hosts a biennial lecture series across Australia known as ‘The Marian Lecture’.

The biennial Marian Lecture for the Marist Association will be an encounter with international speaker, biblical scholar, author and award-winning poet, Dr Bonnie Thurston, who will draw on the rich tradition of contemplation and how to be attentive to the God within.

Late last term the College announced to the community the approval of the Learning Hub development on the Marcellin Campus. The College will host a Community Forum facilitated by the College Architect, Bob Sly, Munns Sly Moore, to present the Learning Hub development and answer any question members of the community may have.

A webpage has also been created to address community questions and provide details about the project. This webpage covers broadly the topics to be covered at the community forum. Click here to access the webpage.


During Week 5, whilst ATAR students are doing their exams, the College will be running an alternate program for Years 11 and 12 General students. Part of this program is a question and answer session where we hope to connect Years  11 and 12 students with people involved in various fields of work. Below are some of the industries which will be on offer:

  • MACA mining
  • P&N bank (finance)
  • Williams Electrical
  • IT industry
  • Defence Force
  • Starting your own business
  • Personal trainer
  • Carpentry
  • Travel agent
  • Audio producer
  • Chef and hospitality industry

Students will self-allocate to a table, and over breakfast ask their “table expert” some prepared questions about their work.
