We believe that Cardijn College and Marcellin Technical College both provide excellent educational facilities and services within the Catholic tradition for pathways after a students journey at St John the Apostle...

Cardijn College

Our students will be accepted to Cardijn College for their secondary education, although families need to be aware that enrolment forms and interviews are still necessary and these commence from Year 6 for the Year 7 Cardijn intake.  (Please note that applications must be lodged by the end of Term 1, the year your child is in Year 5 for entry into Year 7).

Cardijn is committed to providing a high-quality high school education which embraces the full human growth and development of its students. The school commits itself to establishing academic excellence in all endeavours and the staff endeavours not only to bring out the best in the students, but inspire them to bring out the best in themselves.  

Further information regarding enrolment at Cardijn College is available by contacting the Registrar, Mrs Michelle Gaffney on 8392 9449 or emailing
