About Our School

St John Berchman's School was opened in 1938.

Our school is named after St John Berchman, known as ‘the Laughing Saint’, because of his constant smile. He made kindness and courtesy an important part of his life. These virtues are still practised in our school, which we try to make a true happy family where God is central and where the dignity and voice of each child is respected and heard. The school welcomes all families who seek a holistic education that includes the fostering of faith and gospel values.
