St John the Apostle School is part of the Parish of Warringah.

The school was opened in 1962 and at that time Father J. Grady was the priest in charge. Originally the school and church were in the same building. Gradually, eight more classrooms were added.

The Brigidine nuns were the religious sisters who initially staffed the school and the motto of that religious order “Strength and Gentleness” is also the school motto. This motto is still a central part of our school today.
