About Us

St John Vianney’s School is a Catholic Parish Primary School situated in the suburb of East Parkdale. The school is located opposite the Walter Galt Reserve and adjacent to municipal parklands, sports ovals, the Don Tatnell Swimming Complex and the Mordialloc Community Centre.

We are a community working in partnership to nurture the values and traditions of the Catholic faith in a welcoming environment. Our school motto, "Love Conquers" reflects both our belief in and our commitment to respecting and developing the uniqueness and potential of each person within the context of Catholic faith and education.

Our school is part of a community where students, staff, parents and parish priest work together in a supportive environment. The school is seen as an integral part of the parish community.

An atmosphere of welcome and warmth characterises the school, in which all students are known personally and encouraged, challenged and supported in their learning by a caring and dedicated staff.
