With a diversity of enriching programs and the positive influences of our staff and Chaplain, John Wollaston students are valuable, contributing members of their communities well beyond the end of their schooling life.
John Wollaston was born on 28th March 1791 and enjoyed the greater part of his life as a village priest in England.
In 1841, at the age of 50, he left the known comforts of parish life to begin a ministry in the colony of Western Australia. He arrived in the settlement of Australind in that year as a free settler.
He was unable to receive an appointment or salary as a colonial chaplain until he had constructed a church building. Struggling for survival against the harsh and strange conditions, he completed the little church at Picton in less than 18 months.
His energy and efficiency became widely known, and he was asked to minister to the people of Albany. In 1848, he completed St. John's Church, (this time doing less of the manual work personally!), and was appointed the first Archdeacon of Western Australia.
In this capacity, he rode on horseback all over the South West division, caring for the church. He was much loved by lay people and earned a reputation for bringing the very different clergy of the colony together.
He died, chiefly as a result of exhaustion, after his second main archidiaconal tour in 1856. In 1984, he was proclaimed as a local saint and hero of the Anglican Church.
