Our History

school bus areaFounded in 1983, John Paul II Catholic School was established to provide a Catholic education to those who seek it within the communities of Clarendon Vale, Rokeby, Oakdowns, Lauderdale and surrounding areas.

Our founding Principal, George Toepfer, worked with the local community to create a school that would model our School motto: to love and serve the Lord in peace. That community spirit is still obvious today and we are grateful to our students, families and staff, both past and present, who continue to make John Paul II a welcoming environment for all.
